About the Owner of Big 6 Bar B Que
Lejon “Domino” Stewart is a native Houstonian raised in the suburbs of Missouri City, Texas. Domino is a man of faith and family. Hard work, dedication and integrity, fueled his determination to succeed.
After high school, Lejon joined the United States Army and served in Bosnia. While serving the country, he also worked the grill preparing meals to serve fellow soldiers. This is where he began to develop a passion for barbecuing.
When Domino returned home in 1998, he began barbecuing every weekend for friends and family. The weekly barbecuing lasted another three years and the diners grew from 20 to 300 people. More importantly, this hobby inspired the creation of the Big 6 Bar B Que business. Big 6 Bar B Que transitioned to regular catering jobs, picnics, family reunions and much more. This success allowed Lejon to step out on Faith, leave his full time construction industry job and open a Bar B Que food trailer. In 2009, Big 6 Bar B Que was established.
Big 6 BBQ History
The Big 6 Bar B Que success was immediate especially after winning local Big 6 Bar B Que competitions and being recognized as the #1 Bar-B-Q in Houston by a KHOU-TV competition. With the Big 6 Bar B Que expansion, Lejon leveraged an opportunity to open a brick and mortar Bar-B-Q restaurant on the north side of Houston. At this site, he was able to expand the menu, but also realized a greater need for a location in Sugar Land, Texas. Due to logistics, he decided to close the northside location and opened a food trailer in Sugarland. He was able to reduce his overhead and invest in a second trailer. The move proved successful and Big 6 Bar B Que was again providing meals and acquiring new customers and success until “Harvey”s . Hurricane Harvey caused Big 6 Bar B Que and Houston so much of damage that operations were shut down for almost a year. However, through prayer, hard work, perseverance and the support of our customers and friends , Big 6 Bar B Que was able to recover and rebuild.
Big 6 Bar B Que remains a family owned and operated BBQ company experiencing amazing growth. There are mobile trailers that service Sugar Land and the Greater Houston area with catering, onsite concession and much more. The primary location is a deluxe custom built trailer located in Sugar Land, Texas. Big 6 Bar B Que has plans to introduce a magnificent state of the art Food Truck in 2019. Two of Domino’s most prideful accomplishments are being a member of the Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce and being a Service Disabled Veteran Own Small Business (SDVOSB); allowing him to continue to service the community.
Big 6 Bar B Que has been established as the best BarBQ in the greater Houston area, and was featured on Fox 26. One of Big 6 Bar B Que’s concession trailer can be found at the front entrance of the NRG Stadium at almost every Houston Texans home game. Big 6 Bar B Que is also the official BBQ caterer for the 2018 Champion Minor League Baseball Team, Sugar Land Skeeters and Houston Community College. During the baseball season, we give tickets to lucky customers each week. Big 6 Bar B Que is also an official caterer or concession for the Houston Dynamo events.
