This week, I had the pleasure of talking with the owner of BB’s Cafe in Houston, TX. They are a New Orleans and Texas-inspired restaurant with their own take on food, which they have dubbed Tex-Orleans. Houstonians have a serious love for BB’s Crawfish, Gumbo and Po’Boys as can be seen all over social media. We chatted about BB’s Maw Maw, his family history in New Orleans, how BB’s has grown and how to make Grillades and Grits! YUM!!
