Paris Texas

In answer to a customary question - Paris Texas is a small town in north-east Texas and also a 1984 Wim Wenders movie starring Harry Dean Stanton and Nastassja Kinski that won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Of particular note is the movie’s soundtrack album composed by Ry Cooder – a quality sound that is distinctive, authentic and uniquely American. It’s these attributes that hit exactly on our philosophy “to offer a quality menu that is distinctive, authentic and uniquely American”. Adding value to this provides the complete experience. Following many visits to the southern states of Georgia, the Carolinas and Louisiana we are convinced that there is something special in this food that Irish people will love as much as we do. American Barbecue food is perfect with beer and perfect for casual dining in a bar – and it is fun! Then the French / Cajun influence of New Orleans adds a bit of finesse to ensure there is something for everyone. To guarantee that you get the ‘real deal’ in American food our chef has brought his unique recipes to Paris Texas and prepares them with specialist equipment including our wood smoker, broiler and char-grill which have been imported from Texas. Our dishes are prepared to suit all palates. A feature of smoked meats is that they are dry-rubbed or marinated first. As a result some of our dishes are both smokey and spicy but many are not. Some are delicately smoked (like our lamb sirloin) while others are stronger, like our ribs. But pork loves smoke – try the pulled pork to prove it for yourself! We use all the local suppliers and ingredients that we can but for authenticity some things are imported – ghost peppers for our hottest ‘loco caliente’ sauce being a good example. Paris Texas has an extensive range of beers on tap and in bottle to meet and challenge your tastes – just as our food does. We also pride ourselves on our range of spirits, particularly whiskeys, rums, gins and vodkas. All these spirits encourage experimentation so we probably have a cocktail with your name on it. Some even use our home-made lemonade. We also offer all our wines, including prosecco, by the glass as well as bottle. So if you want to experience ‘real deal’ American southwest cuisine and a genuine Irish welcome we think you have made the right choice. Our team are always on hand to help you with menu choices and suggestions that will suit your mood today.

Cocktails

Occasions call for something special and that might just be one of our Paris Texas cocktails. A Whiskey Sour or a Martini are perfect before dinner, while a Berry Daiquiri or a Lynchburg Lemonade taste like dessert. Ask for our drinks menu.

Spirits

Our large range of Irish whiskeys includes some rare treats and to complement our American menu we have a nice choice of Bourbons. Our range of vodka, gin and rum probably include something you have never tasted before – but should have. Take a look at what’s on offer in our drinks menu.

Beers

If our food is different then so is our beer choice. With over a dozen premium draught beers and lagers. We have something for every taste, including old style Dublin Porter and Staropramen, a real quality Pilsner from Prague. More esoteric tastes can be satisfied from our bottle selection, where we are constantly looking for new ideas and tastes. If there is something you feel would be a good addition tell us and we will endeavour to have it for your next visit.
