About Us

Our company is based on the belief that our customers’ needs are of the utmost importance. John is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals. John started cooking Real Texas BBQ as a hobby in competition cooking in Dallas, soon his hobby turned into a passion and he felt he needed to share this great BBQ with all he came in contact with. After bringing his Real Texas BBQ from Dallas, Texas to South Pasadena, he started selling his BBQ at Ahearn’s Chevron. Soon after he found a location just 1.7 miles east of his location. Wanting to keep his local loyal customers from the area, he soon began the transition to his new location. He will continue to serve the same great Texas BBQ you have grown to enjoy.
