The BBQ Shop in Farwell couldn’t get any further west and still be in Texas. Founded along the New Mexico border in 2010 by Kelly and Judy Mimms, the joint became a Thursday tradition for many since that was the only day it was open. The BBQ Shop has gone through some painful changes. Judy passed away last year, and Kelly had to take a step back. Their son Steve Perry and his wife Rita have come in to keep the place going and expand their hours. Now they can also be found serving from their food truck across the border in Clovis, New Mexico, but you better believe this is Texas barbecue.
