Opening in 1939 as Gillard's, 104 E Scott was the first restaurant located outside the downtown Wichita Falls. Gillard's was open for thirty-five years before a fire destroyed the building.
After the fire, the restaurant at Scott and Kell became another favorite, the Branding Iron.
Originally established in 1974, The Branding Iron is now owned by Larry Hise. They serve a variety of home-style barbeque plates, sandwiches, and combo platters, along with all the country sides you've come to expect.Discover our menu

" Delicious, authentic Texas BBQ at reasonable prices... "
" First stop for Texas Barbeque. Recommended by some home town guys. The meat was nice and soft, smoked. Rib plate is were it's at. The sides were set up like a buffet stile son get what you can handle. Price was good and the service great. The barbecue sauce was warm, which was a good touch. Plenty of seating. I walked out full.
