Does that make Big Johns my favorite? I think so.
But now it is for sale! I literally lost sleep the other night as I tossed and turned thinking how GREAT it would be to buy it! I don’t know much about starting a business, much less a restaurant business, but it has always seemed like it is hard to open a new restaurant that lasts in Harlingen. So maybe it would be easier to take over one that has been around for a long time. The trick would be not to mess up a good thing!
As I tossed and turned, I thought about how cool (and hard) it would be to keep the food the same but eventually change it but have a “Big Johns Classic” still on the menu. The “Classic” would have all the BBQ flavors, grease, and fat that made Big Johns last all this time.
Of course, what is a BBQ Joint without Mac n Cheese and Corn Bread?? So those would go on the menu right of way!
I think if I can lure people to go with me to get a burger 30 minutes away at Wallbangers, I can lure people to have some BBQ at a restaurant I owned.
