About


We never thought we would say, "We own Calhoun's". So many great memories with friends and family alike. I am quite sure many of you can say the same about that great Red Barn. It has been a staple in Grayson County for many years. After being away from the area for 20 years, my wife and I were driving by one day and saw how it looked and we were just heartbroken. We both knew we wanted to do something special with the property. Shortly after, the proverbial 'light-bulb' came on and Jake's Place was born. It is named after our son, Jake, who has autism. Blessedly, he is quite high functioning, but his life will forever have an altered path. For years, we knew the day would come when he would graduate, and the next chapter will begin for him. He will be a senior next year so that next chapter is right around the corner. We have discussed many options throughout the years such as snow cone or hot dog stands. Something he could take pride in and call his own. We recently purchased a food truck and he helped us throughout this process. This next step just make sense. The food truck needed a permanent home and what better place than renovating Calhoun's. We can keep that great Red Barn and bring it new life as a food truck park. Jake has worked extremely hard to make 'His Place' something special. He will be involved at Jake's Place so be sure to say 'Hi' when you visit. He is the most lovable, ever-smiling, buzz headed, happiest young man at the place.

So, the next chapter begins. We want to welcome you to Jake's Place (or 'My Place' as Jake affectionately calls it). God Bless everyone for your support.

WHAT JAKE'S PLACE HAS TO OFFER


FOOD TRUCK PARK

A Texoma Hot Spot where you can come and relax with friends and family. We fell in love with the chill environment of DFW food truck parks but wanted to open a place where the elements are never a deterrent. So, let us keep Texoma Peeps from making that long trek to DFW and give them a place for eating & family fun. Each day, we will feature several food trucks that will do a weekly rotation. We will have the inside decorated with awesome décor that brings back old times. A portion of our indoor area & covered outdoor patio that will feature a game area. This will include horseshoes, washers, corn-hole, and darts to name a few. Inside, we will serve beer and wine. Our beer will consist of popular domestic / Imports as well as Texas craft beer. Our wine selection will feature local wineries from Texas & Southern Oklahoma to appeal to our Texoma clientele.
