Howdy & welcome to Elmers Texas Barbeque! We serve up the best smokehouse meats right onsite in the Otter Tail Lakes area. We add some exciting entrees, weekend specials and unique ambiance.
We are proud to bring back and EXPAND the Otter Tail Lake area's newest entertainment option - The Elmer's Old West Melodrama Dinner Theatre for 2016!
We sold out most every show during our inaugural summer, so we are committed to having shows EVERY FRIDAY, SATURDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHT starting Friday, June 10. The Fergus Falls Funtastics return with a WORLD PREMIERE melodrama for four weekends, another great CLASSIC melodrama the next four and then the final two weekends (in August), the local MAD HATTERS company our of Wadena wrap up the season!
Performed in Betty Jo's Pavillion, experience the hoot'n and holler'n good times with the audience-participation melodrama! Enjoy preshow antics, a family style feast of authentic barbeque and all the fixins plus lemonade, tea...and during the show's intermission, you'll get dessert! Yes, like all melodramas, you'll be introduced to the hero, damsel-in-distress, funny characters plus, of course, the villain! Boo, Cheer, Hiss! It IS GREAT FUN!
Last year, the Fargo Forum wrote: "...It's a great addition to Otter Tail County and the surrounding area." Watch for news about the season and ticket sales.
But was there any doubt that great food and a great show make for a great evening?
Actually, ANY evening at Elmers Texas Barbeque is GREAT as every dish is created using only the freshest, finest ingredients. Our signature meats are smoked for 5 to 12 hours each day and served fresh. We serve only the choicest cuts of pork ribs, beef brisket, and pulled pork, along with steaks, seafood, unique side dishes, and fresh baked desserts. Our authentic menu and atmosphere create a truly enjoyable dining experience.
That's what we're up to folks! Whatta hoot! If you'd like to know more, there's a couple links up there on the website menu.
