Proud Of East Texas: Stacy's Bar-B-Q

By Joan Hallmark - bio - email

Jacksonville, TX (KLTV)  Whether your taste runs to ribs, chopped or sliced beef, sausage or turkey, Stacy's Bar-B-Q is some of the very best in the Lone Star State, not just because "Texas Monthly" says so, but because the public has been saying so for the past 32 years.

Ron Davis took over running the family business from his dad Stacy about a dozen years ago. There hasn't been much change over the years. Their secret is good meat, cooked at the right temperature, and served in big proportions.

Stacy's is a favorite of East Texans and travelers alike and counts many celebrities as regulars. Stacy's walls, filled with autographs of the famous and wantabees, just adds to the atmosphere. Stacy's motto is "No Bull--Just Good Bar-B-Cue". But Stacy's appeals to much more than just the taste buds. It's one of those East Texas traditions that you hope will never go away.
