History

Bobby Cox standing in front of Texas Burger


Texas Burger founder Bobby D. Cox was operating a ’50s style drive-in restaurant named after his son called Danny’s Drive-In #2 when he bought the first Texas Burger from the Copen family in Odessa, Texas. The success of that early Texas Burger paved the way for developing new concepts in the restaurant business for Mr. Cox, most notably Taco Villa and Rosa’s Cafe. All three businesses take great pride in having West Texas roots and are household names throughout Texas and New Mexico.

Mr. Cox owns and operates seven Texas Burger restaurants in Odessa, Midland and Andrews. In all, Mr. Cox has built and operated over 100 restaurants in Texas and New Mexico. Since its beginning, Texas Burger has gained the reputation of serving the best hamburger in the Lone Star State, each topped off with a signature cherry pepper. The concept also boasts a wide variety of dinners, sandwiches, and fresh-made ice creams that keep customers coming back for more!
