Jerome Karam’s City Centre Celebrates Award-Winning BBQ

Houston, Texas, United States – 07-27-2022 (PR Distribution™) –

Jerome Karam’s Houston team at JMK5 Holdings recently celebrated a successful day for one of Mainland City Centre’s top restaurants, Texas Pit Stop BBQ. 

Competing in the Houston Livestock and Rodeo Cook-Off, the barbecue restaurant placed not only in the overall Chef’s Award competition but also for Best Chicken. 

This recognition in such a large metropolitan area will help attract newcomers to the restaurant and all of Restaurant Row in Mainland City Centre.

Texas Pit BBQ boasts three different locations in the area. The Mainland City Centre location thrives in large part thanks to convenience. 

It’s straightforward to access when visiting the City Centre for other activities or driving on I-45 or Emmett F. Lowry Expressway. The restaurant also has locations in La Marque and Galveston. 

Competition at the Houston Livestock and Rodeo Cook-Off is always a massive challenge for any restaurant going up against the best of the best in the area. 

Texas Pit Stop BBQ knew going in that they would be fighting an uphill battle, but they made an impact with their unique dishes. Despite not taking home the top prize, placing brings attention to the small local chain.

Foodies pay close attention to significant cook-offs like these in the area. The restaurant expects an uptick in first-time diners for the rest of the summer. They shift their focus to retaining these new visitors to have them come back to try new things on the menu every time. 

This recognition also provides an excellent opportunity for all other restaurants on Restaurant Row in Mainland City Centre. Jerome Karam and his team helped rebuild the area, knowing the potential it is as a hot spot for food and entertainment. 

Attracting more people to the area will help highlight the variety of restaurants. It could also be a deciding factor for restaurants to move into Mainland City Centre.

Jerome Karam believes that location has an opportunity to play a considerable role in Restaurant Row growing more and more in Mainland City Centre. Options include Big Phil’s Soul and Creole, Brick and Spoon, and Grazie Italian Kitchen and Pizzeria. 

There is space for more restaurants to thrive in this redeveloped area to take advantage of being neighbors with award-winning restaurants.
