This is my favorite stop! You must try their Kolaches and bakery items. They have a full meat counter and they have a great selection of Jerky. If you need a hearty lunch or dinner you can't go wrong with trying something off their menu....More

We always stop here on our way to Corpus. We ordered a couple of BBQ sliced beef sandwiches one evening. We thought the meat was kind of dry, but we liked the BBQ sauce. LOVE the baked goods and jerky. Has nice clean bathrooms too.
