We stopped on our way to Port Aransas and will be stopping on our way home. The bakery is good but the brisket sandwich is the reason I stop here.

The foo d was adequate but the bakery is really good and offer a lot of choices. We also like getting an assortment of beef sticks and jerky that is made there on site. You can also buy gas. Go and give them a try

The best beef jerky around!!! And I LOVE their turkey. In a sandwich or a take home package? It’s delicious! Did I mention the Pea Salad? It’s heavenly. Breakfast biscuits and pies? AH-MAZING. Wonderful cheeses too. In fact, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with...More

This is a regular stop whenever we drive to the Houston area. The food is good and there's a sitting area in the center of the store. The place has grown the past few years. Now there are a LOT more people and the prices...More
