Barbecue Brunch Benefit for Trent & Norma Brooks


Norma, Trent, and Freddie Brooks


Attention Houston barbecue lovers!

John and Veronica Avila of El Burro & the Bull restaurant will host a barbecue brunch benefit for Trent & Norma Brooks on Sunday, May 21st.

Trent & Norma own the highly acclaimed Brooks’ Place BBQ trailer in Cypress.

Norma recently suffered a stroke and has been diagnosed with cancer. Having an ill family member can take a huge toll on a family owned and operated business, along with the medical and financial hardships of treatment. We ask that the Houston barbecue community show it’s support by coming out for some tasty brunch. All funds collected will go directly to Norma’s medical expenses.

El Burro & the Bull will be donating sales of all brunch items during Sunday Brunch Service. They will be serving their full brunch menu, along with new special dishes created just for this event.
