Welcome to the Texas Inn!
The Texas Inn, known by locals as “The T Room,” is Lynchburg, VA’s oldest diner, founded in 1935. Now with three locations – Lynchburg, Cornerstone, and Harrisonburg – we still serve “1,500 people, 15 at a time.” To date, we’ve served over six million customers. Whether you’re looking for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or the “Best Hamburgers in Lynchburg,” come on down to the Texas Inn for some good eats.
From its humble beginnings as a 10-seat diner known as the Texas Tavern in Lynchburg, Virginia, the Texas Inn has won numerous awards for our chili and hot dogs, as well as been featured
on many TV shows.
Founded in 1935, we are best known for our secret recipe chili, delicious homemade relish, and our signature sandwich — the Western.
We now have three locations to serve you: 422 Main St. (Downtown Lynchburg), 110 Cornerstone St. (Lynchburg), & 95 S. Main St. (Downtown Harrisonburg).
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 a whopping $5 for the chili recipe in 1927. We still use that ORIGINAL recipe for our chili and our delicious golden relish.
Proudly owned by the Saunders family, including two JMU grads. #GoDukes
