Welcome to The Branding Iron

BBQ Restaurant and Catering


Our story

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.
