The Turkey Leg Hut, a cult-favorite Houston restaurant known for its creatively stuffed turkey legs, will pop up in Dallas next week.
The hype was real when the Turkey Leg Hut first announced that it would make its way to Dallas last month, and now, we’ve finally got details on where and when it’s set to pop up. According to a press release, the truck is set to pop up outside the Potter’s House church at 1270 Woodhaven Boulevard in Fort Worth from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. March 19 through 21.
“We’re so excited to be coming to Dallas,” Turkey Leg Hut co-owner Nakia Price said in sa statement. “People ask when we’re coming to this area all the time on social media. We are glad to finally be able to share a taste of our signature menu with the Dallas-Fort Worth community and so grateful to The Potter’s House for hosting us for the weekend.”
According to a post to the restaurant’s Instagram account, the Turkey Leg Hut is preparing for serious turnout. In a comment on the announcement, the restaurant said that it is bringing 25,000 turkey legs to Dallas to feed the crowds. For the unfamiliar, Turkey Leg Hut’s signature offering is a gigantic turkey leg that’s stuffed with decadent fillings like cajun Crawfish mac and cheese, chicken alfredo, or doused in a sweet Hennessy glaze.
Since its debut in Houston, the Turkey Leg Hut has earned a slew of famous fans, ranging from comedian Kevin Hart to rappers Snoop Dogg and Slim Thug. It’s also been the source of plenty of controversy in its home city, including a lawsuit from neighbors that alleged the Third Ward restaurant was blanketing its neighbors with “noxious” smoke. That lawsuit was eventually dropped.
