What a Year This Has Been…

1 year ago today we were ordered to close our businesses due to a worldwide pandemic. Almost 20 years into this dream and the very real possibility that we might not be able to survive hit home. I couldn’t sleep and actually lost 14 pounds those first two weeks, I was the most scared I’ve ever been in my life.
Slowly I began to realize that the communities we are in and the people we employ wouldn’t allow us to fail. Customers came out in droves to our food truck events, our curbside service, and eventually to our stores in spite of the limited seating. People were so patient with us as we transitioned our business to primarily takeout. Our staff/Grumps family pivoted to our new structure with enthusiasm and a “failure isn’t an option” mentality. We survived!
I sit in my office this morning so very thankful for everyone that has made my Grumps dream come true. I am humbled and will never forget this experience and promise I will pay it forward! (Side note: I gained the 14lbs back plus some, damn.)

Re-Opening Information

Hey Y’all!
We’re excited to finally be re-opening our inside dining rooms, as early as next week. Per the Governor’s Executive Order we can only seat 25% of our total occupancy. We understand that some of you may be apprehensive to start dining out again and want you to know we are taking every precaution to insure your and our safety (see below Restaurant Promise). If you’re still not “feeling it,” it would be our pleasure to continue serving you curb-side. Just call your local Grumps store to arrange. Lastly, THANK YOU! Your support over the last 6 weeks have helped us keep our doors open.  We wouldn’t be here without you and we won’t forget that!
*Store hours may vary. Please contact your local Grumps for store specifics.

A Message from Grumps Staff

Hello Y’all-

We at Grumps wanted to let everyone know we are thankful for the tremendous support during these very unique times. Please know that we are doing everything possible to insure the health and well being of our staff, valued customers and friends. We’re not only adhering to local, State, and Federal guidelines, but we’ve implemented store and Grumps specific measures to further improve upon those requirements. *EX. No more peanuts on the tables (just ask and we’ll run them out to you!). You’ll also notice more sanitizing, hand washing, table spacing, glove-wearing, to-go taking, wall wiping, etc…)

While our stores are all currently open and operating normally, we will continue to monitor the situation closely. We are prepared to make real-time decisions should local/State/Federal authorities provide guidance as to best practices for keeping everyone safe. We are confident that better days are ahead and look forward to the next time we see you!

Taker easy, ?Grumps Crew.

Grumps’ Food Truck was a HUGE hit!

“I thought that Grumps’ Food Truck was a HUGE hit!  You guys did awesome! I only wish that I had been paying attention to know when you wrapped up so I could tell you these things.  Apparently you guys were stealthy in your clean up and departure. (which is a great quality, to be sure)  Just so you know, I am delighted in your service and I have received MANY compliments on the food. Most of the men commented that they were happy we didn’t serve traditional banquet “rubber chicken” and most of the women complimented the burger quality and especially that it was served HOT!  (we all know how difficult that is) We certainly enjoyed the left overs on Sunday when so many of those people were still at our house and we’d not made any arrangements to feed them!!  I am involved in several charity events and I will be certain to recommend Grumps’ Food Truck as a delightful catering choice!!!  By the way, I LOVED the little containers of lettuce, tomato, pickles and onions! Such an improvement on the time required to dress the burger and therefore a great chance to move the people through – also quell some of the traditional “buffet” hangups that some of us germ-a-phobes suffer! (especially during cold/flu season!!).
HUGE Thumps UP!!”

The Grumps Christmas Cup 2017 is allllmost Here!

Our annual Grumps Christmas Cup will be available to purchase beginning Friday, November 24th! Each year, we come up with a new design for these special cups and sell them at Christmas! I know what you’re thinking — “I have too many Grumps cups already” or “My cabinet will not hold any more Grumps cups” or even “I’m already using these Grumps cups as fine china when family comes over.” Those are all great excuses, BUT, I guarantee you don’t have THIS cup yet – we’re “Sleighin’ It!”

The 2017 Grumps Christmas Cup will only be available through Christmas (or until we run out)! These will go quickly because all of you Grumps lovers “MUST” add this cup to your collection! You should see my collection here at the office… it’s definitely growing!

The cups will be available the day after Thanksgiving at all store locations! Burleson, Cleburne, Granbury, & Stephenville!

Happy Thanksgiving & Merry Christmas to you all!

Despite the angry sounding name, Grumps Burgers never fails to delight us with their terrific cheese burgers, so it wasn’t a hard choice on where to eat on our way to watch the Cleburne Railroaders, a new professional baseball team in the American Association (not a minor-league team).


While standing in line to order, my kids grabbed the table in the corner!

The Granbury location is the original,  and has a big outdoor patio, so naturally it’s my favorite.  It’s also dog-friendly, and we take our new little pup with us almost everywhere!


Last year they also opened a Wiffle Ball field, which is open to the public and has bats, balls, etc.  You can also reserve it for parties, how fun is that?!


The Burleson location has an outdoor patio on the 2nd floor, and is located in Downtown Burleson, which makes for a nice place to take a stroll after dinner!


At the Cleburne location, we munched on the complementary peanuts while we waited for our food.  How long was the wait, well, we didn’t finish one hand of Uno.  Isn’t that how every restaurant review ranks speediness?

The cheeseburgers were delicious, and disappeared before I had a chance to take a picture.  My oldest son and I both got the jalapeno bacon cheeseburger, and really, the jalapeno bacon is AMAZING!


My oldest just wanted to eat!


In addition to selling Blue Bell Ice Cream, Grumps also sells Dublin Bottling Works Soda, which when added together make an incredible ice cream float!

Award Winning Jalapeno Ketchup Strikes Again!

Award Winning Jalapeno Ketchup Strikes Again!


Award Winning Jalapeno Ketchup Strikes Again with a win from The Chile Pepper Awards hosted by The Chile Pepper Magazine/McAby Media! In November, Grumps’ Jalapeno Ketchup was entered into the Chile Pepper Awards that is hosted by Chile Pepper Magazine/McAby Media, based out of Stafford, TX. The Chile Pepper Magazine, in its 30th year of publication, is the only “print publication dedicated to the spicy lifestyle,” says publisher Sir McMillen. The magazine has over 200,000 readers, including an international subscription base.

Now, back to the Jalapeno Ketchup!! – The Jalapeno Ketchup was entered into the Condiments – Ketchup division in the competition. Early in December, Grumps Headquarters received a knock at the door. Behind it, the most glorious little square box was being delivered by the local UPS man. BEHOLD, it must be some kind of major award for the Jalapeno Ketchup was inside (this would potentially be the second year in a row for a division title, so we knew it was something good)!

As we all jumped for joy, we couldn’t help but wonder what we had won – of course, The Chile Pepper Magazine wouldn’t just send this nice, heavy box for no reason…….. As we carefully tore into the cardboard box, another blue box was inside (sounds like one of those Christmas gag gifts where you keep having to open box after box…….) Well, inside the blue box, there was something special – The FIRST PLACE award for our Jalapeno Ketchup! We jumped for joy, took selfies with the award (and other photos), and posted them across our social media pages (our marketing gal was super excited, can’t you tell??)!


Grumps is very honored to have won this award for the second year in a row. Thanks to the folks at The Chile Pepper Magazine/McAby Media who voted! Looking forward to next year!
