FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) — “Everybody’s got to try MEGA Texas. It’s addicting, but it’s got people wanting to come over to try it.”
Anthony Vallejo, aka “MEGA Texas,”Tasha, Sierra and his wife are his daughters. They keep their customers satisfied by delicious dishes like BBQ chicken lollipops.
“I think our tri-tip is great, but something you can’t get here at a lot of places is brisket,” Vallejo said. “We do brisket burnt ends.”
The tender, flavorful brisket is loved by many who have been cooking it over the night.
People filling up at McKinley and Fresno ARCO stations don’t know that there is a BBQ joint inside. There won’t be any signage outside.
At 11:15 AM, regulars meet up.
“It’s really cool because there’s a cool buzz,” Vallejo said. “You can tell when people are excited.”
Anthony offers the best tip for beginners.
“You’re not sure, you want to try a little bit of everything, the mini Mega is the plate for you,”He spoke.
You will find six meat options and two side dishes.
The smoked pork chop is also very popular with sweet or spicy sauce.
Vallejo even offers classes in BBQ, so you don’t have to worry about someone copying his style.
“When you feed people, it’s all about showing love,”He spoke.
Mega Texas Barbeque is open Wednesday-Saturday, 11am-3pm.
