“Who we are and how we got started: A native of Kerrville, Texas, Harold E. “Buzzie” Hughes has been cooking barbecue all his life. He used to do backyard barbecues, but 200 people showed up every time word got out Buzzie was cooking. In 1993, his wife, Brenda, finally said, “Enough is enough! Either you open a barbecue place or start collecting donations for these little gatherings. This is costing us a !#$&!* fortune!”
Within five months, the old Comfort Grocery and Feed Store located in Comfort, Texas had taken on a completely new look. Buzzie renovated the old building and turned it into a clean, friendly atmosphere, featuring taste-bud-pleasing, homeboy barbecue, prepared over a mix of oak and mesquite wood, using spices that continue to remain a secret.
Five years later, in January 1998, Buzzie expanded into Kerrville, Texas, in the heart of the Hill Country. His business grew along with his reputation. Profiled in “Texas Monthly” as one of the ….50 Best Barbecue Joints in the State, along with his 16 wins as reader’s choice for best barbecue in Kerrville’s local paper, Buzzie remains committed to living up to the expectations of his customers.
Although a fire in 2007 forced the closing of their Comfort, Texas location, Buzzie and Brenda have been extremely successful running the restaurant and accommodating all their catering requests. Together, they invite you to experience the true taste of Texas barbecue and promise to provide quality food, at a reasonable price with service that is second to none.
