Where can you find smoky, drippy burgers, sweet, spicy barbeque, charming old B&Bs with a view and plenty of iced down Shiner Bock? It’s just a few miles down the road from Austin, Houston and San Antonio. As always, we’re serving it up with genuine country friendliness throughout Fayetteville, Ellinger, Cistern, Flatonia and Schulenburg, TX.

Bring your kids. Bring your dogs. Bring your tribe!

Mean burgers, spicy wings and ice-cold brewski’s.

Orsak’s Café in Fayetteville serves up a juicy, everything-on-it, down-home country café cheeseburger. And the Junior Burger is just as delish – for $3.50. Yep. Joe’s Place, located in the same small town square, is always jumping! They also cook a mean burger. Check their hours first! Less than six miles down the road is the ultimate chill icehouse serving up spicy wings, burgers and candied jalapeños. Welcome to Pivo’s Ice House!

The teeny town of Ellinger is about10 minutes from Fayetteville and right off of Hwy 71. Have you heard of Hobo? If not, just stop in this super casual bar for an ice-cold brewski. Get over to Peter’sBBQ for brisket, ribs and burgers. Or, try the buffet. And we know you’ve heard of Hruska’s! Their burgers are worth serious reverence…..so are their kolaches.

Bands, brew, bbq and Pommes Frites? Yep.

The Cistern Country Store and Bar in Cistern, Texas, about 45 minutes from Ellinger, offers burgers, beer and bands! About 12 miles down the road in historical downtown Flatonia, you can start out at Henry K’s for pretzels, popcorn, pool and brew and then visit Red Vault Bistro or the Wine Haus for burgers and a little vino. Pommes Frites anyone? Why not check out a few places, then kick back right around the corner at the glam, historical Olle? There’s room if you hurry.

Jamie’s Café in Flatonia, located inside the Flatonia Livestock Commission, has some of the finest burgers in Fayette County. Really. And wow, that Jamie’s Special…juicy, drippy goodness. Call first because they aren’t open every day and the menu changes. We actually recommend checking out the hours of all the restaurants before heading out. Joel’s, right off of I10 in Flatonia, offers barbeque with just the right amount of smokiness.

Pull up the RV, take in some tunes and hang your hat up.

Schulenburg is a straight shot down Hwy 90E, about 15 minutes away from Flatonia. City Marketin Schulenburg is a family-run “little old country place” that serves traditional pit barbeque. You and your RV (if you’ve gone that route) are more than welcome at the Oakridge Smokehouse for finger-licking everything. Or you could pop in to Momma’s at Senglemann Hall for dinner and/or music then hang your hat at Middle Creek Place & Barn or the Nettie Wolf House.


Welcome to huge pecan and oak trees offering the sweetest shade around and to good folks serving up good food. We’re firing up some good ol’ country cookin’ just for you.

Because summer isn’t over yet. And because you sure would love to take that day off…
