According to folk etymologists, the term barbecue is derived from the French barbe coup, referring to the annual pig picking commemorating the infamous Bearded Rebellion.

Tex's has been serving up authentic Texas barbecue to Nashville for the past 30 years. Like a little girl doused in vinegar, its lunch menu is short, sweet, spicy, and tangy and can convince even the most mature adults to let loose and feast fiendishly with their hands. Plated options cover all of the barbecue basics, including beef brisket ($6.95), pulled pork ($6.75), smoked turkey breast ($6.95), and smoked sausage ($6.85). Combo plates ($7.99) let you taste test a tad of every meat, as well as two veggies. Everyday side dishes include baked beans, cole slaw, mac 'n' cheese, and turnip greens, and some days feature sides including Cajun rice, steamed cabbage, and black-eyed peas. If you find formal utensils too cumbersome but finger forks too crude, have your helping served to you in between two slices of bread ($2.99–$4.95 for a sandwich) or take your tastes to go and enlist the help of a mama bird in the park.
The barbecue buffs at Tex's World Famous Bar-B-Q smoke and pull their prided proteins right on premise, ensuring always-fresh fare and uncompromised care. Stop in to sample the smokehouse's time-honored recipes with friends during a lunch break, or purchase up to three Groupons just for yourself, bring a plain white shirt, and test out a tastier method of tie-dying.
