Since opening on Route 66, the Big Texan has remained owned and operated by the Lee family. After his death, founder R.J. Lee passed the business down to his two sons, Bobby & Danny Lee. Taking what they learned from their father, the pair ran and grew the family business into the iconic restaurant that it is today. The pair also have two sons each who also run and grow the business this very day.
