Burns has gotten a lot of recognition over the years, including from the late Anthony Bourdain. Mr. Bourdain was a celebrity chef, author, and television personality. He said “Acres Homes is where you can find the legendary family-run Burns BBQ, a place not unfamiliar to me. I first came here fifteen years ago. Founder Roy Burns has passed on to the great open pit in the sky since I was last here, but his son and grandchildren carry on the tradition of making some of the best east Texas-style BBQ you can find.”
When he visited Burns in 2016 for the second time with his television show “Parts Unknown” where he sat with Houston legend Slim Thug, Red Bone, and David Stunts. The trio sits and talks about the portion size of the foods and the delicious delicacies along with Houston culture. The size of the baked potato was the start of the conversation. He was shocked at the size. “My mother told me never to eat anything bigger than your head… and that’s definitely bigger”
