Jack, the former chef of Z Tejas, is the larger than life face of Jack Allen’s, one of the city’s most popular local chains. His son, Bryce Gilmore, is a five-time James Beard finalist and executive chef of Odd Duck and Barley Swine, Austin’s top-rated restaurant.

A Taco Told in Texas tells the story of the greatest tuna taco in the world and the 50-year journey its enigmatic creator, Ralph Gilmore, took to make it.
