It all started with a bucket of tar....
At the ripe old age of 5, JR's dad took him
in the office and introduced him to his first roll of
15 pound roofing felt. And 34 years later, JR. had roofed
on every street in Sacramento.
In 1986, JR. met a Bar-B-Que man from Texas. And after
looking at his bar-b-que, JR said this looked pretty
similar to his tar pot. So thinking about it for a while,
JR said this looked easy and figured cooking tar and
cooking bar-b-que would be the same.
sampling this Texas bar-b-que, JR decided this was the
best, but wanted to put it to the test...give
it to some roofers (they don't agree on anything) and
contractors that always think they are the best, and
car salesmen looking for a good deal. They all agreed
that this Texas Bar-B-Que was the best.
As a result, JR opened JR's Texas Bar-B-Que in November
1987 a 20 seat restaurant on Otto Circle. Today, JR's
occupies 7,800 square feet with a seating capacity of
Besides the restaurant, JR does outside catering
in all of Sacramento County and all surrounding counties.
With the capabilities of serving from 10 to 10,000 people,
JR has earned the prestigious honor of being named "BEST
ALL AROUND BAR-B-QUE" by Sacramento Magazine and
other publications for the past 30 years.
If that's not enough, JR's Mesquite Smoked Beef Brisket
stands alone as the best brisket...even by Texas standards.
after 30 years, JR continues to grow and now will
be offering his mesquite smoked meats (vacuum packed),
dry spice rub and bottled bar-b-que sauce through distribution
on the internet, other eating places and soon your local
