Texas Pride Barbecue, 2980 E. Loop 1604, Adkins, will start its regular fish fries back up on March 2.
The weekly event includes fried pollock or shrimp with hush puppies, fries and more (or you can order barbecue inside and bring it around back). Live music, room for dancing and bucket of longnecks all help make the evening pass in a most agreeable manner.
There’s no cover charge, just plenty of fun.
The restaurant is also going to start up cooking classes in mid-April.

Meanwhile, Garrett Stephens will resume his popular Pitmaster Cooking Class on March 30 at the County Line, 10101 I-10 W.
Class participants will receive a full serving of each of the three courses as Stephens demonstrates how to prepare each dish and takes questions from the guests as he cooks. Everyone receives a recipe book, with space to take notes.
A cocktail reception featuring frozen mojitos made with Steve’s Frozen Chillers and Cruzan Light Rum, both of which are sponsors, begins at 7 p.m.; the class/dinner begins at 7:30 p.m.
The theme for the March 30 menu is “Pigging Out Cuban Style” and includes:
- Cuban chopped salad with sour orange vinaigrette featuring smoked pork belly with a mango-cilantro glaze
- Slow-smoked whole suckling pig in Cuban Mojo served with Cuban black beans and rice
- Grilled plantains with brown sugar coconut rum glaze, mango puree, and vanilla bean ice cream
Since the grill will be fired up, the cooking class will be held outside on the restaurant’s shaded patio; in case of rain, the class will be moved inside.
The cost for the evening, including meal, class and cocktails, is $50 a person. To make a reservation, call (210) 641-1998 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
