Montrose’s king of Cajun dishes on crawfish season and his growing empire, plus Houston’s hottest food news
On this week’s episode of “What’s Eric Eating,” BB’s Tex-Orleans founder and CEO Brooks Bassler joins CultureMap food editor Eric Sandler to discuss the growing Cajun/Creole restaurant. Over the course of 15 years, BB’s Tex-Orleans has grown from one, nine-table restaurant in Montrose to 14 locations in Houston and San Antonio.
Bassler begins the conversation by explaining how a search for more late night dining options inspired him to start BB’s. Initially, the restaurant earned acclaim for its po’ boys and dishes like red beans and rice.
