We've wondered for years: "What is going on under the big billboard in Cumby?" Now we knowo. Jseph Saucier has been salvaging architectural pieces from all over the local area — and other states, in fact — to create the Billboard Restaurant and Club.
It all started with the unique billboard with the chairs and flag on top, which is the highest point between Fort Worth and Texarkana. Then he saved the vault door and bricks from Cumby State Bank to use on his smoker and to create the front walkway. Next, he refurbished the used wood from R.W. Harris Lumber Yard in Cumby that was built in 1890 and placed it in the club area.
Along with the “Walk-in Wooden Ice Box,” the operating1920 lamp and the handmade brick wall, you will find an amazing amount of local history in this restaurant. They will feature Louisiana-style smoked meats — his mom's famous chicken, along with a variety of classic side dishes. The restaurant will be open, beginning May 1, on Fridays and Saturdays from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., with the club staying open until midnight on Friday and 1 a.m. on Saturday!
