The southern and quaint city of Dumas lies in the county seat of Moore County, located about 40 miles north of Amarillo, in no other than the grand state of Texas.
Named after founder Louis Dumas himself in 1981, the city name remains the same to this day. Dumas is in the heart of one of the state’s leading grain sorghum-producing areas, but also produces large quantities of natural gas, as well as two-thirds of the nation’s helium. Several feedlots, grain elevators, beef packers, fertilizer plants, as well as a tannery, attest to the city’s leadership in agribusiness. Its vast attractions include state parks, family fun theme parks, theaters, aquatic parks, ranches, plus much more. The popular city even has its own hilarious theme song! The infamous silly tune, recognized by many as “I’m a Ding Dong Daddy from Dumas”, was written and led by Phil Baxter and later played as a theme song for the town’s local radio station. If you’ve heard it, you did not hear wrong! In the midst of all the Dumas city fun, there is always room for more good eats. Dining comes by second nature to everyone, which is no secret as food is always part of the equation for this small town.
