• Restaurant Recommendation: Pure Texas Barbecue at Ten50 BBQ

    FROM THE Fall 2017 ISSUE

    Private event space with Lone Star appeal—and a menu to match.

Hungry for barbecue done right? Ten50 BBQ in Richardson has pitmasters smoking premium meats for 12-16 hours, right in plain view of the restaurant’s customers. Then Ten50 pairs the meat with made-from-scratch sides—like warm, buttery yeast rolls—and tops it off with desserts like Key lime pie and banana pudding. The restaurant offers private dining space for groups of up to 65, complete with a plasma screen and sound system. Custom menus and full bar service are available to groups in rustically decorated private rooms with plenty of Lone Star appeal. 

If you’ve spent time in noon board meetings or luncheon team strategy sessions, you’ve likely suffered through the traditional buffet of cold cuts and stale cookies that have seemingly become the norm for these occasions. But rejoice: Like all things Texas, boxed lunch options in our state are far from standard. Here are a few standout caterers that offer creative menus, seasonal fare, and a commitment to satisfying every palate by offering gluten-free, dairy-free, keto-friendly and vegan selections. 



These on-trend spots offer new options for groups.


If there is a better hair-of-the-dog drink than a bloody mary, we sure don’t know what it is. Visit Beaumont shared its recipe for a tasty Sunday brunch cocktail, and they even made it for eight, so you can treat your friends!
