The oldest continually running restaurant in Lynchburg!
Located in downtown Lynchburg, stop by for hot dogs, chili, hamburgers, or their signature ‘The Western’. From its humble beginnings in 1935, The Texas Inn (formerly Texas Tavern) has become a Lynchburg legend, providing dining in a unique, casual environment.
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.
Check out their new location at 110 Cornerstone Street, serving up the same unique experience.
