Houston’s Black-owned restaurants are cooking up a plan to combat rise in meat prices
Some of Houston’s Black-owned restaurants are paying more than double the typical price for your favorite meats — and now, they’re planning to fight back.
Shortages of both oxtails and chicken wings have hit Houston’s Black-owned restaurants particularly hard, as many count the meats among their most popular menu items. Wholesale prices for these meats have consistently risen and have yet to decrease. Multiple local Black-owned restaurants that sell oxtails and chicken wings say they are paying outrageous prices to meet the needs of the public.
