Eddie's BBQ uses local products to Go Texan

By Christie Post - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – If you're going out to eat and would like to taste the best food Texas has to offer, be sure to go Texan.

Every year the Texas Department of Agriculture puts on the Go Texan Restaurant Round Up to strengthen the overall agriculture industry. Friday is the last day for the event, but you can support local farmers, ranchers and restaurants anytime.

"We need to support our farmers, we need to support our ranchers; and offer them up, sell their products here, at our local restaurants," said Owner of Eddie's BBQ, Eddie DeLavan.

About 400 restaurants are participating across the state to support local farmers and ranchers. Customers can dine out and support locals too while putting money back into the economy.

"It does help their economy, it flows all the way down to people who are driving trucks, working in grocery stores, it's just a win win deal for everybody," said DeLavan.

Eddie's BBQ on east 50th street is just one of the many partnering to bring Texas products to the table. They will be giving a portion of their proceeds to the South Plains Food Bank along with other restaurants around town.

The owner said eating local food is a great way for customers to know where their products are coming from while supporting the Hub City.

"It does help their economy, it flows all the way down to people who are driving trucks, working in grocery stores, it's just a win-win deal for everybody," said DeLavan.

Eddie's BBQ always uses local brisket, sausage and other products. Even though the event ends Friday, they will be offering a delicious sliced meat meal for $6.50 throughout the week.

The restaurant is open Monday through Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. but do offer catering and private parties as well. They are located on 1324 E 50th Street.
