BEHIND THE WALLS
Huntsville residents know that Walls refers to the "Walls Unit" which is the central prison unit of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice located in downtown Huntsville. Opened in 1849, it is the oldest prison in Texas. The unit's nickname comes from the surrounding massive red brick walls. But soon, Texas will know Walls as the place for moist, flavorful, pecan-smoked meats and scratch-made sides. This will be the Walls you won't want to leave! Read the full story here.
A BETTER SMOKE
Very rarely do you find BBQ smoked with pecan wood despite its perfect balance of sweet and savory. That is because it is rare and expensive relative to oak and mesquite. Fortunately, Walker County is home to many native pecan trees which we use for the smoke only, not to heat.
Rarely do you find a BBQ restaurant--even the good ones--where they make all their sides from scratch. To prove it, we display our produce and dry goods where our customers can see them. Flavorful recipes, fresh ingredients, and a lot of love make Walls unique. The same effort is put into our delicious desserts as well.
