Our Story


Big Tex is a restaurant that serves Texas-style Southern and Southwestern fare, along with fun spins on classic American bar food.

Big Tex is a bar that puts friendliness first, following through with cold beer, great cocktails, and a lively staff to make sure you are kept happy.

The owners all live in Decatur and feel our city will embrace our relaxed, yet up-beat, atmosphere. We aim to provide some down-home comfort, while maintaining the high standard in food quality, preparation, and service that Decatur residents expect.


Parker Sandwich Story

We’ve been enjoying our friend Chad Parker’s Pickles for years but when we tried his Chicken Sandwich we it had to be put it on our menu. Chad grew up “helping cook” at church events and family get-togethers, which developed into a passion for BBQ and simple food done just right.
