Hey, Bud! What’s changed at the Jambo’s BBQ in Rendon? It reopened.
Barbie and Waldo Strein, competition barbecue cooks and advisors or several restaurants, have bought
the Jambo’s flagship and renamed it Jambo’s Original BBQ Shack. Owner Ashton Stauffer kept the Arlington and Pantego locations. The Streins brought back some former employees and expanded the menu. The infamous Jambo Texan sandwich (six meats on Texas toast) is taller than ever. Jambo’s Original is open for lunch and dinner Tuesday through Saturday, lunch Sunday at 5460 E. Farm Road 1187, between Mansfield and Burleson.

The former location is scheduled to reopen later as a casual bistro. Paris 7th is open for dinner nightly except Sunday at 3324 W. Seventh St. (Book reservations on Yelp.com.)
