Our Tradition

Customers are seated and greeted by the owners!

How the tradition began…

Proprietors, Victor and Patsy Franek, are both Houston natives and have spent the better part of the last 20 years serving up Northwest Houston’s best home cooking at their former location, The Bake Shop and Café. Eager to enjoy more time at their bay house in Palacios, Texas they sold The Bake Shop and Café and moved to where they will eventually retire.

Bringing their restaurant experience and son Marty with them, they opened their new endeavor in the former home of the Texana Grill. They renamed the restaurant Texas Traditions Grill & Bakery paying homage to the family friendly food they are known for in the restaurant business. This newest labor of love began in August 2010 and with the help of their four (yes, four!) boys, Vic and Pat transformed the 100 year old building on 234 E. Main Street to the soon to be famous Texas Traditions Grill & Bakery.

Victor and Patsy Franek are proud parents to four boys, four beautiful daughters-in law and six grandchildren! Matthew and Kimberley live in Fredericksburg, Texas with 2 children, Savanna and Cashton. Gerald, along with his wife Rachel reside in El Campo with their son Wyatt who is eleven and the twins, Dillon and Peyton. Louis and new wife Amanda live in the Tomball area with their son Kam who is five. Marty, the youngest of the four boys, works as a manager at the restaurant. Marty recently married his wife Crystal, who also works with us! They are sure you will learn more about them as you make Texas Traditions Grill and Bakery a mainstay; please tell them about your family when they meet you!

Enjoy our cakes, pies, Signature Ding Dong and Jack Daniel's Pecan Pie for dessert or take out. We serve 4 different flavors of the cheesecake factory cheesecakes. A huge salad bar with all the fixin’s, "scraps" and many other hot dishes are available, along with seafood items like The Seafood Platter and Patsy’s Stuffed Crab Platter. Enjoy made fresh daily soups, sandwiches and grilled items that give you enough selection to make Texas Traditions Grill & Bakery a great lunch spot or provide quality, affordable dinner for your family! We look forward to serving Port Lavaca and earning your business. Bring your family to try the best home cookin' around!

Vic, Pat and the Boys!
