Let's party at


It's going down


Now y’all scroll on down to see what we’ve got in store for you!

We’ve got a party planned that’ll knock the stink off a skunk here in Kyle, Texas! We’ve got ribs, ‘ritas, carnival rides, and a whole mess of things on a stick ready to dig into, plus a live-music lineup that’ll wear out your boots on the dance floor! To make it even better, entry and musical performances are FREE! By the end of the weekend I’d reckon you’ll be plumb worn out from all the hootin’ and hollerin’ at this

Finer Than Frog Hair Festival!


Grab your apron and mix those spices before you get down and smokey on a rack of ribs! We’re looking for the most finger lickin’, mama slappin’, and heaven-sent rack of ribs you can imagine.

Are you bringing the sauce or are you dry rubbing? Post oak or pecan? Do you wrap them at 2 hours or are you letting that smoke hit it the whole time? The littlest things can take a rib from awesome to scrumptious and then all the way to a taste-travaganza.

Get Yo Rib On Till Dawn!



Here in Texas, we take life with a rim of salt. And a lime. And some Triple Sec. And some tequila. Over ice. With a tiny umbrella.

Four ingredients is all you need, but we appreciate those who go above and beyond as well. What’s your best ‘Rita? Are you adding additional citrus notes, or maybe hittin’ it with a dash of spice? Blanco or Reposado? The possibilities are endless, but in the end one will leave the others in its salty dust.

Show Us Your Bonita ‘Rita!
