FM Smoke House is a full service restaurant serving rural Texas comfort food. The menu is inspired by local eateries located along Texas’ rural farm-to-market highways that criss cross the state and lead to major cities. FM Smoke House will feature many smoked dishes such as bacon-injected brisket, beer can chicken, beef short ribs, beef tenderloin and house made hot dogs. Other menu items include Texas favorites such as chicken fried steak, fried turkey breast, chili, and frito pie. Special smoked meats and seafood will be available on a rotating basis in season. Operating hours will be 11 a.m. – 12 a.m. daily.
All food items at FM Smoke House will be prepared in house from scratch using quality ingredients with an emphasis on local ingredients when available. Guests can choose to order smoked meats and side dishes either by the individual platter or served “family-style”, perfect for hosting large parties and groups. FM Smoke House will also offer take-out and catering options. A full bar will be available with an emphasis on American craft beers and house infused vodka drinks. Of the 37 draft lines, 20 will be dedicated to Texas brewed beers.
FM Smoke House is the second restaurant concept created by husband and wife team, Brian and Christi Rudolph, owners of the Holy Grail Pub in Plano, TX. The concept of FM originated from the popularity of their “Smoke Out” beer and barbecue events held at the Holy Grail Pub on select weekends during the summer months. With, FM, the Rudolphs hope to offer smoked dishes year round in a comfortable family-friendly setting with complete dining service.
