It’s pronounced pal·a·din /’palәdn/
Why Paladin? We took our name from the big guy himself—the 1,100 lb. Texas longhorn standing guard out front. Named “Paladin,” he’s the 5th in a series of sculptures welded by Bettye Hamblen Turner from stainless steel, carbon steel, and recycled motorcycle and car parts.
But what’s a Paladin? In ancient Rome, the name was given to the emperor’s palace guards. In literature, the term evolved to mean a benevolent, heroic champion and defender of a good cause. But to anyone watching TV in ’60s, “Paladin” was the code name for Richard Boone’s champion-for-hire on Have Gun–Will Travel.
Like the bull out front, Paladin seemed the perfect name for a bad a** bar and grill determined to serve up GOOD food, GOOD beer, and a REAL GOOD time, seven days a week.
