Texas Beef & Cattle Co., the newest retail business and restaurant in the Wright Dunbar Village, has scheduled its grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony for 4:45 p.m. Thursday, June 30, according to an announcement by Wright Dunbar Inc.
Located at 1101 West Third Street, close to the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park’s visitor center, the restaurant will be the first co-op style barbecue in Dayton, according to the announcement.
Texas Beef & Cattle will serve dinner on Thursday and Friday from 5 to 10 pm, Saturday from 4 to 10pm and brunch on Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm. Entrees will feature mesquite smoked beef brisket, pulled pork and smoked sausage. Specialty sides include borracho beans, Tejano rice, “yella’ tater salad,” side salads, sautéed vegetables and green beans.
Restaurant founder James Nunez plans to expand hours over time to include lunch and broaden the menu to include free range, grass fed, locally sourced bison brisket, free range chicken, ribs and Gulf Coast seafood, according to the announcement.
Nunez signed a three-year lease for the space with Wright Dunbar, the nonprofit organization responsible for developing the Wright Dunbar Village, the historic district in West Dayton that was home to airplane inventors Wilbur and Orville Wright and African American poet Paul Laurence Dunbar. The restaurant will add nine jobs to the district, according to Wright Dunbar.
