Delayed by the coronavirus pandemic and the wait for final inspections on its super-sized, 5,995-square-foot new restaurant, parent company Texas Meltz has finally shared a debut date on social media for its Lone Star State-inspired, “good, old fashioned” barbecue concept.
Announcing a soft opening on December 14, L2 Texas BBQ will take over the standalone former home of Memphis Championship Barbecue on Warm Springs Road, a short drive from Eastern Avenue.
Over the summer L2 posted a now removed “express menu” designed for the drive-thru window, featuring beef brisket, pulled pork, and chopped smoked chicken combos served with fries and a drink.
The main menu is expected to focus on quality meats, “slow smoked on hickory, mesquite and oak for 13 hours.” Early plans also hinted at an all-you-can eat option, lunch platters, and a la carte servings of brisket, fried baby back ribs, smoked sausage, pork, ham, or chicken, plus catfish nuggets and fillets.
Among the previously previewed sides and extras, portions of tater tots, dirty rice, creamed corn, fried okra, chili cheese fries, pickle spears, and Frito pie, plus desserts including bread pudding, brownies, and peach cobbler.
The restaurant has not shared its hours.
