From its humble beginnings in 1935, The Texas Inn (formerly Texas Tavern) has become a Lynchburg legend, serving our world-famous Chili, hot dogs, hamburgers, and signature sandwich — The Western.
The Hill City’s oldest restaurant now has two locations to serve you — 422 Main St. (Downtown) & 110 Cornerstone Dr.
Founded by Nick Bullington, a Ringling Brothers’ Circus advance man, the Texas Inn has been serving “1,500 people, 15 at a time,” since The Great Depression. Legend has it that Bullington paid a San Antonio, Texas chef $5 for the chili recipe in 1929. We use Bullington’s ORIGINAL recipe for our chili and our delicious golden relish.
The Texas Inn is now proudly owned by the Saunders Family — Dave, Sue, Hattie, Jack, and Molly.
Thank you for your patronage! Y’all come back!
