Cowboy Up because this ain’t your mama’s Tex Mex!
The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is February 25, 2013 through March 17, 2013 and Frank's Americana Revival is celebrating our Texas heritage. The rugged American West radiates an unmistakable pioneering spirit. And so does the food. It's Rodeo time, Houston!
Join us at Frank's Americana Revival as we celebrate Texas and the Cuisine of the American West – part of our continuing commitment to Americana revival cuisine.
The Emmett and Shine Chuck Wagon will be on site at Frank's Americana Revival, with a working Chuck Wagon exhibit on several Fridays from 2:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Dates are February 22, March 8 and March 22; these days will make for great photo opportunities and a look at how food was prepared in Texas in the not so distant past. See photos from Go Texan Day.
Join us for a Cowboy Cocktail Party with featured guest, Dan Garrison of Garrison Brothers Distillery, and award-winning Garrison Bros. Texas Straight Whiskey Bourbon. Dan will be on hand from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. around the chuck wagon and in the White Star Bar, greeting and meeting with customers and sampling products.
Beginning February 15th and continuing on Friday evenings throughout rodeo season, we will feature nightly specials inspired by the American West and our interpretation of Contemporary Cowboy Cuisine.
