Texas Eatery Rewards Concealed Carry – The Trend Continues . . .

 (courtesy Facebook )

Brooks’ Place, a Cypress, Texas BBQ restaurant, decided to promote itself and the Second Amendment at the same time. “Present your CHL this Saturday the 4th of July and receive a FREE SANDWICH with your purchase of a sandwich or anything priced higher. Have both CHL and CONCEALED GUN and dessert is FREE too,” their Facebook page read. The results were entirely predictable . . .

What a Historic Day at Brooks’ Place today. By the looks of the support we may have just started something. Brooks’ Place 1st Annual CHL and CARRY DAY. How Bout That?…

Here is something interesting about today. There were more WOMEN than MEN carrying concealed today. Gotta Love It . . .

SOLD OUT!!! Thank you for supporting the cause. CHL Day is History one for the books. Thank you and thank you to all the good guys for Carrying.

Appealing to citizens carrying legal guns is a winning strategy. It attracts a top level clientèle while increasing security at the restaurant.

The comment about more women carrying than men is particularly telling. It will be interesting to see what other holidays this strategy will be applied to. The end result may be simply a blanket discount for armed customers, as has happened elsewhere. We recently reported on the phenomena in Arkansas as well.

The security benefits can be multiplied after the first of the year, when licensed open carry will be legal in Texas. Brooks could offer a free meal with open carry on the 1st of January, when the law goes into effect. I suspect that they would sell out again. I also suspect that this will not be the last of such promotions. [Brooks’ is located at 18020 Fm 529 Rd Cypress, Texas, northeast of Houston.]

    The BBQ at Brooks Place is legit… Top 50 in the state… I have talked to him a couple of times… Good dude.

  5. avatar Christian S says:

    There’s a place similar to that in San Antonio too. Auggie’s Barbed Wire give 10% off every day for military personnel and CHL holders. Definitely my favorite BBQ in town

    OMG! How was anyone supposed to know the difference between the good guys with guns and the bad guys with guns! The carnage must of been astronomi…..


    Nothing happened but a bunch of sales of sammiches?

    Never mind.

    No victory for MDA here.. move along… these aren’t the guns you’re looking for…. move along.

    Obviously, a bunch of gun-nut fascists who are bamboozled into carrying guns by the promise of free sandwiches.

    Wish we had something like that in El Paso! However, I went into Dunkin Donuts and showed my gun. They tried to give me a cash register! Not sure we understood each other.

    We REALLY need something like this to happen in/near Chiraq.

    Just hold on a second – no arguments in the parking lot causing a mass shooting? No confrontations made deadly do to the ready availibilty of a handgun? No accidental discharges or guns just “going off” by themselves? No high capacity magazines sparking a murder rampage?!

    If I’m not mistaken, this was a heavily-armed civilian undertaking at a successful business. A crowded business. If the gun grabbers are telling the truth, this must not be possible.

    Maybe Starbucks should get in on this. Bring your permit and a gun and get a free cup of crappy over-roasted and over-brewed coffee.

    1. avatar Dyspeptic Gunsmith says:

      And do what with it?

      1. avatar Geoff PR says:

        Try using it as “Organic Break-Free”…

        Or “Liquid Wrench”…


      2. avatar Rusty Chains says:

        The grounds make really great compost, so maybe you could pick up a load of them too. Of course if you don’t garden, then there isn’t much reason to go to Starbucks, unless yo

        1. avatar Rusty Chains says:

          you like over priced coffee (heard on the news today that they are raising prices even though coffee bean prices are down)

          dang computer glitched and posted half of my post….just felt the need to finish

        degrease the bore

        You can use it in your sonic cleaner on brass.

    Everything to gain and nothing to loose. A great idea which should continue.

    I’ll have to check them out. They’re only a few miles from my home, but I’m not familiar with Brooks BBQ, as we’re regulars of Rudy’s BBQ. Gimmick or not, I like it that they’re out there promoting 2A freedoms.
