Paula Deen and Fairview Town Center announced plans to open the first Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen in the state of Texas at 163 Fountain Court, Fairview, TX. This new location will be located in the largest inland metropolitan area in the United States with a population in excess of 7,000,000. Scheduled to open Spring 2018, Deen stated, “I adore all my fans in Texas, and bringing my Southern cooking to the Lone Star State is something I have dreamed about for years. This is the perfect place to bring together family, friends and great Southern food – three of my favorite things!”

Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen combines Southern hospitality with classic Deen Family recipes brought straight to the table, including favorites such as Paula’s Southern Fried Chicken, Spare Ribs and Georgia Fried Catfish. Meals are served “family style” and guests can order endless portions of Southern-style entrees, side dishes and desserts. “I have taken my favorite recipes and brought them to life in an atmosphere that feels just like my own home,” said Deen. “When you come in and are taken to your table, the first thing you’re gonna get is biscuits and sweet potato butter that’ll make your tongue wanna slap your brains out.”

Guests can dine in the 250-seat dining room, browse retail items from Paula’s home, kitchen and lifestyle collection, and enjoy a unique interactive cooking experience at a full-scale replica of Paula’s kitchen called “Cooking with Paula”.

Current Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen locations include Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, with more locations planned. Deen’s first restaurant, The Lady & Sons, officially opened in downtown Savannah on January 8, 1996.
