It's a strange feeling to drive through the horse fields and pastures of Argyle, Texas, then suddenly wind up on a street corner bustling with unique restaurant concepts.
The folks who brought us Earl's 377 and Kimzey's Coffee House (plus Denton's LSA Burger and Barley & Board) have now hidden in their backyard a funky little Austin-esque barbecue trailer; a place they've called Bumbershoot BBQ. I like to call this trifecta of fun food "destination dining", because you make a bit of a drive to get there, and then you are fully immersed in a well-planned environment with quirky little details at every turn.
A growing line of people stands before a little silver trailer serving up serious barbecue (it runs out fast, y'all, so get there early!), while picnic tables sprawl under light-strung trees. You're in Argyle, Texas, but when you take in the sights, smells, and the sound of country music, you feel for a second like you're someplace else entirely. It's all al fresco at Bumbershoot BBQ, and I think it's absolutely charming.
The menu at Bumbershoot is simple: meats, sides, and drinks. Don't overthink it. Get some LOADED TATER TOTS (obviously, I'm yelling, so this is an order), a plate of meats, choose your favorite side, then settle into a picnic table with a cold beverage. Done.
Mouth watering yet? If not, here's a little photo evidence...
