ORANGEFIELD – Those looking for a fun place to eat outside of their usual stops might need to look no further than Bullfish on West Roundbunch in Orangefield.

Several years ago, Jason Montagne attended the Orangefield Christmas Festival to raise money for a museum.

“I bought a few spots and people asked me what I was going to do,” he said. “I told them I didn’t know. We ended up making steak tacos and shrimp etouf. I played around with the name and landed on Bullfish. People started asking if it was coming to Orangefield, and I told them I was just doing it for the museum.

Montagne said he never thought he would hear the name again. The following year, he took part again and public interest grew.

“I finally took a food truck and turned it around the corner,” he said. “We had the same food retailer as Burger Town, and we decided to buy it in 2019 and it finally worked out.”

What started out as some kind of joke is now a reality at 6223 W Round Bunch Road, and Montagne wouldn’t have it any other way. Montagne, who identifies himself as the facility’s grounds manager, said he likes having a place where people can just hang out and relax.

The facility has a large fenced outdoor area with ample seating and a stage for live music.

“We usually have live music on Thursdays and Saturdays,” he said. “We try to alternate Fridays with a DJ or karaoke or whatever. We just started steak night on Wednesdays and Tuesdays. We started music bingo, which is really entertaining. price.

The location is currently open Tuesday through Sunday and closed on Monday. Montagne said Mondays will likely soon be reserved for special events and private parties.

The restaurant also recently started serving brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“A kid came in on Saturday and said he wanted a burger and French toast sticks,” Montagne said with a laugh. “I told him he could have them.”

The menu offers a variety of food choices. Customers can get a number of salads, sandwiches, and a number of Cajun and Mexican dishes or seafood and steak cuisines.

“It has to be a bit varied because we’re here,” Montagne said. “We offer a pasta dish and a meatball sub.”
