Tony was very knowledgeable and helped us design out outdoor kitchen. The work was done on time and on budget. We definitely recommend using Texas Outdoor Escapes if you are considering adding or improving your outdoor kitchen.

Overall, it went great. Tony, the owner of Texas Outdoor Escapes, was really friendly and professional throughout the process. We found Tony through Angie's List and he was the second contractor who contacted us back with a reasonable price to build our outdoor kitchen. Our house came with the outdoor plumbing and water already so this saved us time and money. My husband provided him a CAD drawing of the layout/cutouts we want for our grill and accessories so Tony didn't really partake in the structural design of our outdoor kitchen. We got our grill and equipment online and gave Tony the measurements and he ensured that we will have enough space to accommodate all the items we purchased: grill, drawers, two burner stove, pull-out trash bin, refrigerator, and sink. Tony guided us in choosing the stones for the masonry. The price we paid included the steel framework, masonry, electrical with an additional electrical outlet, and the installation of the grill and accessories. The porcelain tile for the countertops, the travertine tile for the backsplash, and the grouting materials for these were additional costs on top of the $4228 we paid for. I wish it was included in the price. However, we did receive a 10% Angie's List Discount and another 5% Military discount, which I was really happy about. Due to the rainy weather, it took a while for our outdoor grill to be completed than I expected. But overall, I am very please with the final product. I would work with Tony at Texas Outdoor Escapes again.

Tony and his team did an outstanding job on our outdoor kitchen...we are very pleased! We shared with Tony how we envisioned the layout. He provided a few invaluable suggestions to help increase countertop surface space and overall appeal. The extra countertop space has already proven to be a great idea! Our kitchen has granite countertops, granite wrapped backsplash, 4-in nicotine stone accented with bricks to match our home, and granite wrapped appliance spaces for a ceramic grill, 4-burner gas grill, power burner, and a drop-in icebox that doubles as a sink. We received quotes from several contractors, all of which used cinder block to build their kitchens. Tony uses steel framing for his kitchens which allow for maximum storage space beneath the kitchen. Everyday we look out at our patio and we can't believe that beautiful kitchen out there is ours!!! Thanks Texas Outdoor Escapes!

I called Patrick on a Sunday afternoon and described an outdoor plumbing leak that I wanted him to look at at his convenience. He chose to come over within an hour, checked it out and said he could fix it the next day. He came by the following day after working on another house in the neighborhood and the leak was completely fixed by 5 PM. Did a great job in a very timely manner and will definitely use him again. Price very reasonable for two trips. Highly recommended and a very personable guy.

We put in a pool a few years ago and wanted to add an outdoor kitchen and living area. We had an idea of what we wanted, but really needed a professional to walk us through creating a design that fit our needs. We certainly found that in Westphall Remodeling! Brad really knows what he's doing! He's very conscientious about budget and works hard to create exactly what you are wanting. He understands that his work is not just constructing or remodeling... he is building dreams for his clients. I know that sounds corny, but it's evident in his attention to detail and his determination to have things done just right. He takes a lot of pride in his work, and he wants to ensure that his clients are completely happy with the final product. Brad is an excellent communicator and always kept us up to date on progress and what to expect. He responded quickly to any questions we had. His crew was courteous, reliable, and skilled. The project was completed in a timely manner. In fact, it was even done early!! We are so happy with our outdoor kitchen and living area and would highly recommend Westphall Remodeling to anyone looking to remodel or build.

Fantastic! Westphall has done numerous projects for us as we are in the design business. I have also referred him to many of our clients and we have never regretted it. Everyone has had nothing but praises for his professionalism and quality of work. Excellent service! He really cares. He is right there from start to finish.

Our company subs this contractor out for masonry work often. He always shows up, does a great job, is a perfectionist and will not stop until it is perfect. He is super easy to work with and he will be up front and honest with you about if your idea wont work or wont look right. I've even seen him throw additional little things in just to make it look even more amazing than you would have originally envisioned. The best thing about him is I don't have to supervise him!!! This is a HUGE deal when you're a contractor. He actually does what he says he's going to and communicates well throughout the process. I would HIGHLY recommend him and will use him in the future for other projects. VERY IMPRESSED!

After interviewing several people, I turned to Angie list and found Tony Godsey, owner of Texas Outdoor Escapes. I told him what we wanted for an outdoor kitchen. He informed me that he made the framing of steel construction and I was impressed. Everyone else wanted to make it of plain stone or a wood frame. From the beginning Tony included us in every aspect of the construction. He was up front with what he could and wouldn't do. He told us that he did not provide the granite for the counters. I quickly contracted a granite fabricator to complete that portion of the kitchen. Tony provided the electrician/plumber of whom did an excellent job installing 2 ceiling fans, 6 electrical plugs, and 5 barn style light fixtures. The steel manufacturer was also great, we had to make one adjustment to accommodate a larger sink and he also had great ideas as things got constructed. The contractors for the rock exterior construction also did an excellent job. They had to come back to construct a drain to the front and to the rear of kitchen as we noticed that rain water accumulated and traveled under our refrigerator and into the interior of kitchen with no outlet. We had an existing un-leveled flagstone patio of which this new kitchens sat on. For the final touch to our beautiful outdoor kitchen, Tony and his son installed a cedar arbor. We could not be any happier with the final results of the kitchen and our experience with Tony and his crew. We are now going to try and use his electrician to install 3 more ceiling fans and an electrical plug for an outdoor tv. We highly recommend this company. Tony kept us involved with the whole process and I wasn't hit with any surprises to our original estimate. We had one change order and we had them install a water filtration for the outdoor icemaker. GREAT JOB TONY!

Recent Review: Recently had our pool & spa and outdoor entertaining area completed by Outdoor Creations and we are extremely happy with the finished product. Their crews worked very efficiently and professionally. We started the pool the first week of April and it was filled with water by the end of June. Get your pool built in the off-season for maximum efficiency! Fernando was our designer and we are thrilled with how the pool looks. Prices are reasonable. David was our superintendent and we really appreciate his responsiveness and oversight of our project. They did a great job coordinating the process and communicating with us. There was very little downtime and crews were scheduled very efficiently. We highly recommend Outdoor Creations!
