The Original Black’s Barbecue

The Original

We love to support local businesses at Great Big Signs Inc. The Original Black’s Barbecue began in 1932, in Lockhart, Texas, and is run to this day by the same family. We’re especially proud of our most recent work on their newest store in New Braunfels, Texas, which opened in the summer of 2018. Through our design process, we crafted every detail with an aged and rustic aesthetic.

Taking into account the history of the town and this building, there are several references to the Crystal Chandelier, an iconic dance hall at which George Strait played in the early years of his career. This is why we thought it appropriate to place a mural of this country singer right on the stage. You can even find the original chandelier from the Crystal Chandelier hanging inside. We glazed the entire back wall to add an aged and smoky filter, the exterior metal siding was rusted sheet by sheet in our shop, and part of a headboard that had been in the family for years was repurposed into a frame for a welcome sign. There was no detail we wanted to overlook.
