The atmosphere is laid back and casual but with elevated menus and cocktails. Lights hang on the spacious outdoor patio, adding to the relaxing ambiance. And that outdoor patio is a great spot to dine at for brunch during the day or even at night under the lights.

Brunch or Dinner — Your Choice

Be sure to stop by on Sunday’s for Revelry’s tasty brunch options. Check out their Chicken and Waffles that look picture perfect. (And taste it too!) Try the Boudin Scotch Egg, a soft poached egg with house-made boudin crawfish and hatch chile etouffée, or the Shrimp and Grits for something a little more meatier. 

For dinner, start with the Crispy Chicken Wings that live up to its name. These wings really are crispy and fall off the bone. The honey-sriracha glaze brings a spicy kick. For dinner, the Fried Chicken is the perfect Southern comfort food. The two airline chicken breasts meshed well with the mashed potatoes that were soft, buttery and just overall heavenly. The gravy was so flavorful while the green beans made the perfect pairing.

Gumbo Gem

If you’re looking for something hefty to fill you up, I strongly suggest trying Revelry’s Signature Gumbo. This dark brown roux gumbo is made from scratch, and is the chef’s family recipe. For all my meat lovers, this dish is made for you. I’m talking shrimp, crab, crawfish, chicken, ham, Andouille sausage, smoked okra — all in one dish! Oh my, is right! The rich dish is very filling and not so common here in Texas. So, if I were you, I’d hop on it. It’ll taste like something grandma makes in the kitchen!

Happy Hour

Stop by on Wednesdays for their all night happy hour (Thursday and Friday, happy hour is 5-7pm) where they have $2 off house cocktails and appetizers and $1 off drafts. With 22 rotating craft beer taps and a rotating cocktail menu, there are plenty of buzzworthy options to get your drink on.

Buzzing Cocktails

Try the Blood Orange, a pink sweet drink that gives off summer vibes, and aesthetically looks like a fancy cherry limemade. The Blood Orange Fashioned is a very strong and bitter warm citrus blend. For those who love bitter, you can’t get any better than this. If you want to get Effen Smashed you’ll find yourself drinking Effen cucumber vodka with mint St. Germaine, and lime. On the spicy side, the Ride or Die is a habañero-infused altos tequila mango purée with lime and agave. Want something a little more classic? You can’t go wrong with the Blvd Margarita

Whether going to brunch with friends or a dinner date with your loved one, Revelry on the Boulevard will surely have a variety of tasty options to satisfy anyone’s craving, no matter how picky.
