The Friendliest Bar in Texas

Grab A Drink With Friends

Visit the Friendliest Bar in Texas. Stanley’s Famous Pit BBQ is proud to offer over 70 different bottles of American Bourbon, Whiskey, and Rye. We have the largest collection of whiskey in East Texas, and this is not a museum – every drop is just waiting to be tasted. We have 12 different tasting flight combinations so you can easily compare your favorite whiskey to others.

Tasting whiskey flights is a palate friendly experience. You can compare styles of Bourbon like high rye, low rye, and wheated, or you may compare three different rye whiskeys. We also have flights of single barrel bourbon and small batch bourbon. The Texas bourbons are popular as are the wheated bourbon flights. Whichever ones you choose can be enjoyed straight or made into the cocktail of your choice by the friendliest bartenders in Texas. Our versions of your favorite whiskey cocktails are sure to please. We take great care to create mixtures that will please even the pickiest connoisseur.

If a fresh brew is more to your taste, then we have choices aplenty. From multiple local and Texas beers on tap – some of them seasonal – to your trusted bottle, our knowledgeable, friendly bartenders can suggest just the right spirit for your unique taste. We will, of course, insist that you do not consume too much and we are always more than happy to arrange a ride for anyone who does not believe themselves safe for their journey.
