March 15, 2024

It’s that time of year again to dust off your boots, grab your Stetson and mosey on down to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. But before you head out – or if you are partaking in the spirit of Rodeo season from afar – check out these top BBQ in Hockley TX and western wear spots along the 290 corridor that will have you decked out in your cowboy or cowgirl best and full of delicious ‘cue.

Where to Get Your BBQ Fix

There’s nothing like good Texas barbecue to get you in the Rodeo spirit; and wouldn’t you know it, some of the best spots are close to The Grand Prairie! Beloved by tourists and locals alike for slow-cooked pit classics ranging from brisket and chicken to ribs and sausage, Waller Country Line BBQ is located right off Highway 290 and FM 362. Mains are complemented by mouth-watering sides like potato salad and green beans. Known for its homestyle fare Fields Store Pit BBQ not only serves up great BBQ in Hockley TX, but also a variety of delicious burgers, sandwiches and salads. And 2021 World Food BBQ Champion First Class BBQ is located in the nearby town of Hempstead.

Head to Toe Rodeo

If your Rodeo wardrobe could use a little refresh this year, giddy up on over to one of the many western wear stores near Hockley. Cavender’s and Boot Barn are one-stop shops for everything a cowboy or cowgirl should need. Both carry a wide assortment of hats, boots, apparel and accessories.

Looking for something a bit more bespoke? It’s worth the drive to western wear boutique, Pat Dahnke, known for elevated, made-in-Texas items and statement pieces perfect for turning heads over the next few weeks. Yeehaw, y’all!
