Texan-owned Hard Eight BBQ offers a one-of-a-kind eating experience through its unique “Texas Style” BBQ and service. Patrons are served hot, fresh BBQ straight from the pit, directly from the Pit Master. The Burleson EDC helped the restaurant find their perfect, 5th location right along the bustling I-35. To help establish the company in Burleson, the EDC provided an incentive package for a sales tax rebate up to $450,000 or ten years, whichever occurs first.
The company’s first location opened in 2003 in Stephenville, Texas and over the years added locations in Coppell, Roanoke, The Colony, and Burleson. The Burleson restaurant opened in January of 2019, occupies 16,000 square feet, and has over 100 employees.
