our story

Behind THE BBQ.


It all started with a culinary dream of premium BBQ. Far from our first rodeo, our founders have a track record of success and we've embodied our hometown Texas spirit of going big and getting things done.

Having launched and led a number of restaurant brands, we've set our sights on creating a truly authentic and premium smokehouse experience for the people of Dallas, Fort Worth, and beyond, set deep in the heart of Grand Prairie.

And now we're here.


BBQ at its best has always been a treat for all your senses. The sound of the crackling fire. The sight of cooked-to-perfection brisket being sliced. The smell of smoke and spices. And of course, the taste.

That’s why we started Loop 9 BBQ. Because we understand the need.

Not just for a new BBQ joint. The Loop 9 experience brings you the heat, the sounds, the sights, the smells, and that insane flavor that makes your mouth water and your sleeves roll up.

At the end of the day, it comes down to two things: the meat and the smoke. By combining top quality ingredients, premium meat, and a process that took generations to perfect, Loop 9 BBQ offers a truly premium smokehouse experience in a place that feels like home.

Keep Your Eyes on THE PIES.

If there’s one thing that could possibly steal the spotlight from Loop 9 BBQ’s premium meats, it’s the fresh baked pies. Made from scratch with the freshest ingredients and baked to utter perfection, these pies are so good, you might start calling us “Mom.”

Stop by for a slice, get it to-go, or eat it in the car before anyone’s the wiser. No matter how you choose to indulge, there’s always enough pie to go around.
