About Paris Texas

Following many visits to the southern states of Georgia, the Carolinas and Louisiana we are convinced that there is something special in this food that Irish people will love as much as we do. American Barbecue food is perfect with beer and perfect for casual dining in a bar – and it is fun! Then the French / Cajun influence of New Orleans adds a bit of finesse to ensure there is something for everyone.

To guarantee that you get the ‘real deal’ in American food our American chef has brought his unique recipes to Paris Texas and prepares them with specialist equipment including our wood smoker, broiler and char-grill which have been imported from Texas. Our dishes are prepared to suit all palates. A feature of smoked meats is that they are dry-rubbed or marinated first. As a result some of our dishes are both smokey and spicy but many are not. Some are delicately smoked (like our lamb sirloin) while others are stronger, like our ribs. But pork loves smoke – try the pulled pork to prove it for yourself!

We use all the local suppliers and ingredients that we can but for authenticity some things are imported – ghost peppers for our hottest ‘loco caliente’ sauce being a good example.

Paris Texas has an extensive range of beers on tap and in bottle to meet and challenge your tastes – just as our food does. We also pride ourselves on our range of spirits, particularly whiskeys, rums, gins and vodkas. All these spirits encourage experimentation so we probably have a cocktail with your name on it. Some even use our home-made lemonade. We also offer all our wines, including prosecco, by the glass as well as bottle.

So if you want to experience ‘real deal’ American southwest cuisine and a genuine Irish welcome we think you have made the right choice. Our team are always on hand to help you with menu choices and suggestions that will suit your mood today.

Booked a meal to celebrate our anniversary. We love Paris Texas, we were put out in the big room at the back and it was so noisy with stags and crowds we couldn’t enjoy it. I think if your being put out there you should be made aware first . I was sorry we didn’t just leave.

We felt that the food wasn't as good as we had hoped. My main dish wasn't very tasty nor was it hot. The drinks service was also slow but our food arrived very quickly. There is a really nice atmosphere with lovely staff. We will definitely return to give it a second chance.

One of the guests had a quesadilla which was almost empty, there was not enough filling in it. Our mashed potato side was lumpy. The chips were not fresh. I have been before and had much nicer food, perhaps it was just an off night.

I come here all the time with my partner, and it has always been a lovely dining experience. This one was more confusing than ever, though. We always get the same meal - 9oz Sirloin Steak. And it always comes with frazzled onions as standard. My partner had asked for roast potatoes and mushrooms as her sides. When the food arrived, it came with roast spuds, MASHED spuds and no onions. I had to ask for extra onions. Silly thing to complain about, I know. But it's the first time we had any sort of problem in this restaurant - if you could regard it as such. I will say the food was utterly gorgeous, as per usual. We will be back, time and time again.

Our waitress was so lovely and nothing was a bother to her! I was in a wheelchair and was never made feel different from the minute I entered the door. We were greeted by an extremely, friendly professional guy who brought us to our table without any problems. Wonderful staff and lovely food and fast service. We’ll be back 😃

I would like to thank you all for the great birthday experience I had at your restaurant yesterday! The food was fab, my Mum (who is an excellent cook) said this was her best meal ever. She had the lamb and we had the 8 oz steak. Perfection on every level. Thanks again, we would go back shortly x
