In 1930 the Texas Tavern
was born in Roanoke, Virginia. Later in time, an identical Texas Tavern was built in Lynchburg, Virginia. The Lynchburg Texas Tavern was torn down in the late 1970s. The identical Texas Tavern building in Lynchburg was never rebuilt, but it was reborn in a new location with a new name. Today, the Texas Inn sits proudly on a cliff that overlooks the James River. Just like the original Texas Tavern in Roanoke, they both seat a thousand people ten at a time and they both have limited parking. Today, the main difference between the Tavern and the Inn is that the Lynchburg Texas Inn has a bathroom and it's closed on Sunday. The Roanoke Texas Tavern is open 24 hours a day seven days a week and it only closes on Christmas Day. The Texas Inn is also open 24 hours. Another thing they share besides the "Cheesy Western" is their amazing hotdogs. The dogs are grilled, the buns are steamed, and they are topped with mustard, onions, chili, and an incredible relish. You won't find a better late night snack!
