In 2001, Randy Goss—the famous GM and part owner of the County Line BBQ restaurants in San Antonio—was looking for a unique new way to give back to the San Antonio community. Like most of the County Line restaurants, the newest San Antonio location has a fabulous patio with great tree cover, so it is a great venue for enjoying County Line’s award-winning smoked BBQ while listening to live music.
Goss loved the idea of concerts that were no-cost to his customers—but with a purpose—so he came up with the idea of asking all attendees to bring food for the San Antonio Food Bank. Since the series started in 2001, the music series has raised over one million pounds (yes, one million pounds) of food for the hungry in San Antonio.
Goss is now deceased, but his legacy continues with this concert series, plus two others. County Line has taken that highly successful recipe (excuse the food pun) for a phenomenal music and community event, and created Live Music Series benefitting local food-related nonprofit agencies in another two of its four other locations: The State Line in El Paso, Texas and The County Line in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
For those unfamiliar with County Line and State Line—they are part of the same restaurant family, serving the same mouth-watering BBQ. The County Line was formed by some Texans who love Texas; love its heritage and historical buildings; love BBQ; and are committed to running a restaurant based on four principles: First: offer the highest quality smoked barbecue – ribs, brisket, sausage and chicken – with traditional sides of cole slaw, potato salad and beans. Second: provide these BBQ specialties in generous portions at reasonable prices. Next: offer friendly table service with linens and bar service. Finally: feature an authentic location that celebrates the heritage of Texas. In 1975 they put all these principles into effect at The County Line’s original location in an old speakeasy now known throughout Austin as The County Line on the Hill…and the rest, as they say, is history.
The “Ancira Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram 2017 Live Music Series at The County Line” that benefits the San Antonio Food Bank is back—for its 17th…
