JL's Lone Star BBQ, LLC

Montgomery, TX


JL's Lone Star BBQ began as Joe Hodges started BBQing for friends, family, and the Boy Scouts of Troop 507 and thier families. Then it developed into a family owned and operated BBQ restaurant in Murphy, NC in 1990.  This is where Jason Hodges was taught to BBQ.

Since the restaurant closed in 1994 the passion has lived on. Joe and Jason continue to cook for friends and family. Jason has began cooking in competitive BBQ events with friends in 2014, and placed 2nd in pulled pork in the Montgomery County Fair Barbeque Cook Off. This is when Melanie realized how good the BBQ was and why Jason just would not eat at any old BBQ restaurant.  Joe, not to be out done by his son, took 1st place for brisket at the First Baptist Church Willis Roundup cook off.

In 2015, JL's Lone Star BBQ was revived as a mobile food vendor and catering business.  This is when Jayson, Jacob, and Riley started showing interest in the family business.  Although the company is permitted as a mobile vendor and has the ability to sell "on the street", the demand for catering has prevented  street sales.  Contact us if you wish to book us a mobile vendor, however these services are only available in Montgomery County.  Catering services are offered state wide.

On June 26th, 2019, Jason opened a small restaurant and take out location near the Lake Conroe subdivision Bentwater on FM 1097 West making half of Riley's dream come true.  She wishes to have a daddy/daughter BBQ and bakery place.  However, due to an old injury worsening, Jason had to close the restaurant at the end of 2019.  He will still be offering catering services in the new year and future.

BBQ is a passion for our crew, you won't have any better Q anywhere!
