It had a certain seasoning to it that I never forgot and even craved when I was in the mood for chicken.

Wood Fired Grill inside Jerry Nelson’s Hill Country has been open for nearly a year now, and if you haven’t had the opportunity yet, you really need to give it a try.

The venue’s décor sets Wood Fired Grill apart from any other restaurant in Beaumont and is alone worth the visit. It has a warm, inviting feel that is reminiscent of a visit to the Texas Hill Country.
