Foodie Friday DFW: Circle R Ranch
It may seem a little outside of our norm to feature a place like Circle R Ranch - a premier event venue here in Flower Mound - as one of our Foodie Friday DFW spots. But if you've ever hosted or attended an event at Circle R Ranch, you know why we felt like they should be featured here!
Circle R Ranch is situated on a gorgeous piece of property within 60 rolling acres of hills and pastures and houses two separate event facilities. It is the perfect location for company picnics, family reunions, weddings and more. And considering they've been the location for major events like these since 1973, they've obviously got a lot of experience backing them up.
The current owners, Jason and Hillary Roberts, began managing Circle R Ranch in 2012 after being a vital part of the business since 1997. And just last year they were able to purchase the property from the Powdermaker Family and are looking forward to continuing all of the fantastic Texas Traditions Circle R has become known for for many more years to come.
When the Roberts took over ownership, they brought on Chef Matt Bodnar, who has been working in kitchens for over 25 years and has worked as a head chef for over 15 of those years. And since joining the Circle R team, he's been able to truly transform their menu with inspired and delicious dishes incorporating the Powdermaker Family's original recipes.
