"Desert Oak continues to grow in popularity, but it’s still a small restaurant. Our family has some new dreams now, and we’re excited to bring you along on our journey of making them a reality. In the very near future we plan on opening a larger restaurant," I'm happy to report that those dreams came true, and in turn gave us some bigger ones. Fast forward and we have now been on Diners Drive-Ins and Dives, featured in Texas Monthly's Top 50 Barbecue Joints, and Stephen, my brother, and myself, followed in our families footsteps and threw in the towel on our old careers (Stephen's 20+ year career with the government, and mine as an ER nurse). We didn't know the world would be brought to a screeching halt with a pandemic at the time, but we're so grateful that we made that decision. Together, as a family, we've ignited much bigger dreams within one another for the future of Desert Oak. Thanks again to The Calcaterra family, we've come back to our roots and we're in the process of opening two brand new locations, one of them right next to where we first started, at Cowtown Boots, and once again, we feel like we're just getting started; no matter the growth, we will continue to provide a place, just like our back yard, where this dream first started, where family and friends can enjoy good food and good company. We promise there won’t be any bad brisket."
