On this day, October 2nd, in 1835 the opening shots of the Texas Revolution were fired outside the town of Gonzales over a canon that the Mexican government gave to the people of Gonzales to defend themselves from Comanche raids. A flag depicting the canon bore the phrase “Come and Take It!” which has since become an infamous rallying cry for Texans all over the state. Pok-e-Jo’s pays tribute to this famous slogan from Texas history with a reminder that whenever you’re feeling a battle raging in your stomach for high quality BBQ, head on down to your favorite store and Come and Get It!
