HOUSTON’S LAST TEXADELPHIA HAS SERVED ITS FINAL CHEESESTEAK Texas cheesesteak sports bar Texadelphia has closed, a couple of readers tell Swamplot. The spot at 6025 Westheimer Rd., west of Fountainview, was the first and last of the Houston locations for the Austin-born franchise. This spot had been open for about 20 years. Photo: Jack S.
sad… but i can’t say i was keeping them in business. It’s probably been 10+ years since I’ve been.
their facebook page shows some internal strife over the last few months:
LOOK, I JUST NEED THE MUSTARD SAUCE RECIPE AND EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE. WHO’S GOT THE JUICE?
Ah memories of The Drag @UT. I loved Texadelphia when I was at UT, but never even thought about the one here. It just seemed an Austin thing. Like why would I want to go to a Schlitterbaan that isn’t in the Hill Country? Schlitterbaan IS the Hill Country.
@Northsidegirl, get out of my head, this is exactly what I was going to say.
I haven’t been there in a couple of years, but that’s disappointing.
The mustard sauce recipe is 60% Gulden’s spicy brown mustard, 30% mayo and 10% teriyaki sauce. Handy home measurements for a small batch are 2 Tbsp, 1 Tbsp, 1 tsp, respectively.
Actually, I haven’t made the mustard blend in a while….I may have the mayo and mustard proportions reversed. It may be 60% mayo and 30% mustard…I can’t remember….try it out. You’ll know which is right.
The one in the Village was life-sustaining in college. I assume it’s gone now too.
The Village location has been gone for a decade or more, I think.
I enjoyed the one on the drag in Austin. I visited a few of them in Houston. It was never anything special enough to become a regular destination. If you want a really good cheesesteak, try Tornado Burger down in Stafford. I think I’ll go there for lunch.
The owner didn’t know how to run the business. He closed owing a lot of people money!
@BCA: I can remember overhearing an employee at the original Drag location say that the secret about the mustard blend is that it’s mostly mayo. Your second post is probably correct.
QUESO! QUESO! QUESO! Anyone have the recipe for the queso? I loved that stuff and haven’t had it in a long time.
Fond memories at this place. Too bad.
I liked this joint.
