A local TV personality returns to his roots with the launch of Tex’s Hot Chicken. While most KSAT 12 viewers may know David Elder from his “Texas Eats” show, they will soon learn that his palate did not develop overnight.

A statement shared the news from Tex’s Hot Chicken, Elder’s latest venture alongside restaurateur Cary Hamer of Infernos Wood-Fired Oven & Spirits. Hamer opened the restaurant eight years ago in the city center of Gruene and opened a second location in the Boerne region six years later.

Hamer, who previously operated Hooter’s Regional, was impressed with Elder’s finesse on the flattop. While most see Elder sampling bites on his show, many may not be aware that he cut his teeth in area kitchens.

“These are all recipes from David,” Hamer said of Tex’s Hot Chicken‘s menu. “He walked into the kitchen with the chef and watching him was really impressive.”

The signature dish, The Big Tex, will delight thrill seekers in search of warmth. This 12-hour marinated chicken breast is “hand-breaded, deep-fried, soaked in hot oil (optional) and served on a buttered and toasted brioche bun with Tex sauce, a southern coleslaw salad made homemade and sweet bread and buttered pickles. “
