In answer to a customary question - Paris Texas is a small
town in north-east Texas and also a 1984 Wim Wenders
movie starring Harry Dean Stanton and Nastassja Kinski
that won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Of
particular note is the movie's soundtrack album composed
by Ry Cooder - a quality sound that is distinctive, authentic
and uniquely American. It's these attributes that hit exactly
on our philosophy "to offer a quality menu that is distinctive,
authentic and uniquely American". Adding value to this
provides the complete experience.
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 dryrubbed
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
