Turkey Leg Hut from Houston is selling its famous food in North Texas for three days

The Turkey Leg Hut, a Houston company that has developed a wild following since its inception more than five years ago, is coming to Dallas-Fort Worth.

A food truck will be parked at The Potter’s House in Fort Worth from 11 a.m. to midnight March 19, 20 and 21. Customers can buy stuffed turkey legs and Cajun bowls. (Note, the Potter’s House has many campuses. This event is at the Fort Worth church.)

A spokeswoman says it’s the first time Turkey Leg Hut has served food to the public in Dallas-Fort Worth.

“People ask when we’re coming to this area all the time on social media,” says Turkey Leg Hut co-founder Nakia Price in a statement. “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.”

The company first started getting noticed when it sold stuffed turkey legs outside of the Houston Rodeo. Owners Nakia and Lynn Price now have a restaurant in Houston’s Third Ward, and they operate five food trucks that serve the Houston area.

TLH’s stuffed turkey legs have received celebrity approval from Megan Thee Stallion, Meek Mill, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent and Drake.

The turkey legs are truly a sight: One $30 option comes stuffed with grilled shrimp and Cajun alfredo sauce. The traditional stuffed turkey leg, $22, comes packed with spicy rice. Another has mac and cheese inside. They’re so big, customers eat them with a fork — and you can’t lift them; the meat will fall off the bone.

Turkey Leg Hut’s success has spawned local inspirations, like when Smokey John’s Bar-B-Que sold turkey legs stuffed with dressing at Thanksgiving last year. (They were delicious.) A restaurant that opened in October in Dallas, Turkey DAM, also sells stuffed turkey legs. Another popular Dallas restaurant, Turkey Leg Paradise, has found success with this guarantee: “if it don’t fall of the bone, it’s free.”

Turkey Leg Hut pop-up is from 11 a.m. to midnight March 19, 20 and 21, 2021 at The Potter’s House of Fort Worth, 1270 Woodhaven Blvd., Fort Worth. Customers will be asked to stand 6 feet apart and need to be in line before midnight to get served.
