Perez Barbecue In Bartlett Texas Is Not Closed

I got wind of a possible closure of Perez Barbecue up in Bartlett, Texas via Twitter last week so I called the family to see if the rumor was true.

It’s not.

Family patriarch Sodie Perez is recuperating from heart surgery, and the family has left the tiny roadside building they called home for the past quarter century while they search for a new location.

In the meantime, the business is still functioning as a catering operation til they can nail down a lease on a new physical location. Victor Perez, Sodie’s son is now in command of the pits his dad formerly operated.

Perez Barbecue is famous, justly, forĀ  handmade sausage that is herbaceous, smokey, and stands amongst the finest I’ve ever eaten.

I’ll miss that funky old pit room/roadhouse, but it’s heartening to know that the family is still in the game and will continue putting out world-class smoked meat on the Bell/Williamson county line.

Call 254-493-6921 or 254-721-2620 to place your orders and help this family get their new brick and mortar up and running.
