Listed in Food, Beverage & Nightlife


A native of Fort Worth, Grady Spears would rather be called a cowboy cook than a chef. The long, tall Texan earned a meager living punching and selling cattle before turning to restaurant work to pay the bills, and his expertise in the kitchen came about unexpectedly–the moment a chef simply quit in the midst of a busy weekend dinner shift at the legendary Gage Hotel where Grady was managing the restaurant in the West Texas town of Marathon. Grady stepped up to the stove, grabbed a pan and produced meals for the dining room full of 100 hungry people. Like they say, the rest is history.

Since then, Grady has created menus and concepts in his signature cowboy style for The Reata Restaurants he co-owned in Alpine, in Fort Worth, Texas, and in Beverly Hills, California, The Roadrunner in Las Vegas, Nevada, The Chisholm Club in Fort Worth, The Burning Pear in Sugarland, Texas, The Nutt House in Granbury, Texas, and Grady's in Fort Worth.

Over the years, Grady has cooked on television for shows that include: Good Morning America, The Today Show, Paula Deen, The Rosie O’Donnell Show, Donnie And Marie, as well as various shows For The Food Network including The Cowboy’s Kitchen, Food Fights and others.

Grady has cooked at the Texas Governor’s Mansion for George and Laura Bush before they made the move to Washington, D.C. and has rubbed elbows With the culinary elite, cooking with the likes of Martha Stewart, Mark Miller, Stephan Pyles as well as the late Jean-Louis Palladin. He has endorsed or done work for various national brands to date that include: Pepcid Complete, Bud-light, The Texas Peanut Producers, Miller Lite, Legend Airlines, The American Beef Producers, Woodford Reserve, Nolan Ryan’s Tender Aged Beef, The Big Green Egg and Others.

Grady also hosted a weekly show on RFD TV titled “The Cowboy’s Kitchen” and in July of 2010 Grady began working with Reliant Stadium (now NRG Stadium) in partnership with Aramark creating menus for the Houston Texans, The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, The Final Four and the upcoming Super Bowl.
