Baker Boys: One of Texas’ Top 50 barbecue joints
Wednesday, August 29, 2018
For Phil and Wayne Baker, finding a home in Gonzales for their Texas barbecue business was a dream come true.
Now that the dream has become a reality, Gonzales and all of Texas is better off for it.
On Wednesday, Aug. 15, Baker Boys BBQ will be celebrating its third anniversary out on Hwy. 90. In the three short years Baker Boys has been in existence, it has skyrocketed to the elite atmosphere of being recognized as one of the best barbecue joints in all of Texas.
That’s not just our opinion either. A few months ago, Baker Boys received the prestigious honor of being named by Texas Monthly as one of the Top 50 barbecue places in the state. It has been a meteoric rise for the relatively young business, but Wayne Baker says it never would have happened had it not been for the help of the county of Gonzales.
“My dad (Phil) and I had been kicking the idea around of opening our own barbecue place for a long time,” Baker said last week. “I was living in Luling, but Luling did not have anything that really met our needs. We started looking around, and we ran into Carolyn from the GEDC at the watermelon festival. She invited us to take a look at Gonzales.
