Celebrity Chef Paula Deen Opens First Restaurant in Texas

Paula Deen

Paula Deen, known as “the Queen of Southern Cuisine,” announced that her first Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen location in the state of Texas is now open in Fairview, at the Fairview Town Center. The restaurant is approximately thirty miles from Dallas.

In a press release, Paula Deen spoke highly of the new location and its already-obsessed fans. “I adore all of my fans in Texas and bringing my Southern cooking to the Lone Star State is something I have dreamed about for years. This is the perfect place to bring together family, friends, and great Southern food—three of my favorite things!”

At the first-ever Texas location, you can order food family-style just like the Deen family would serve it up in Savannah. The Deen family opened Lady & Sons in downtown Savannah in 1996. Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen already has locations in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. A second Texas restaurant location in San Antonio is expected to open this spring in addition to the Dallas-Fort Worth location in Fairview.

So the only question is, when will you visit the first-ever Texas location?
