In December 1991 what used to be Tommy’s Place was turned into Inside Four Bar K and the concept of “Jug Little’s Friday” was transformed into Friday Lunch, a weekly BBQ buffet held every Friday. Chuck Kershner transformed this 6,500 square-foot building into a rustic West Texas atmosphere that would serve as the backdrop to wedding receptions, reunions, you name it. This three level building was packed to the brim with artifacts and history took you to a different place in time.
Tragically this building was lost to a horrific fire on October 21, 2002 and all of its artifacts destroyed. However, this wasn’t the end of Four Bar K. Chuck and his crew utilized two other buildings that they currently owned and retained every party that had already been booked, with the exception of one, and only missed one Friday lunch!
In May 2003 Inside Four Bar K rose again bigger and better than ever! What was once a 6,500 square-foot building became a 13,000 square-foot building featuring a huge basement level that serves as a dance floor double its former size. A facility that used to be able to seat 225 people now has the capabilities to accommodate 450 people. As far as the artifacts? It kept its rustic roots and now has the ability to display even more. Patrons that frequented the old place stepped up beyond anyone’s wildest imagination and gave graciously. Stuffed deer heads, pot belly stoves and exotic wild life are only a few of the things donated to restore the rustic ambiance. Chuck also hunted quite of few of the wildlife including Africa.
Despite all of the tragedy and heartbreak Friday lunch still prevails each and every week. Featuring smoked brisket and sausage as well as a whole buffet of homemade side items. Private bookings are booked far into the future for this small piece of West Texas history.
With attention to each detail private parties are made simple, elegant and enjoyable for not only the person booking the event but the attendees as well. Chuck and his staff make sure that simplicity and hassle-free are the number one priorities. Four Bar K delights in the fact that it is one of the only remaining facilities to offer a B.Y.O.B policy. This means no issues with returning items after the party, no deposits or huge tabs to pay at the end of the night. You provide the alcohol and we hire the bartender for you! Let us help you with your event! Bring a little bit of West Texas flair to your next gathering, a little rustic elegance to your next reception and a bit of cowboy flair and “shabby chic” to your next event.
