Ain't it cute - the Texas Tavern in Downtown Roanoke
A reminder at The Famous Texas Tavern in Downtown Roanoke

Here is some trivia for those who love trivia about The Texas Tavern:

  • Texas Tavern is open 24 hours per day-7 days per week, except Christmas.
  • The building has been painted approximately 65 times.
  • Approximately 1100 Tons of Pinto Beans have been consumed since 1930.
  • Approximately 1,260,000 pounds of hamburger meat have been consumed since 1930.
  • Approximately 9,460,000 hotdogs have been consumed since 1930.
  • Gerald Williams and Bill Ammons ate at the "Tavern" the day it opened and are still customers 74 years later.
A favorite sign or two at The Texas Tavern:

  • We seat 1,000 people-10 at a time.
  • We don't cash checks or play with bumblebees.

I have taken this information directly from their website and hope it brings many more interesting folks in to join Roanoke's Millionaire Club.
