Traveling from Austin to Corsicana

Trying to decide my route -

Any awesome chow in Mexia, Groesbeck, Hearne, Hubbard or Hillsboro?

Open to anything ranging from nice to a back woods shack

Not afraid to off road it!

  1. Are you staying on 35 until you get to Hillsboro? If so, Kolache's at the Czech Stop at Exit 353 in West, TX.

      I would say bypass the Czech stop and turn right towards town. There's a bakery on your immediate right and a couple downtown. I've always preferred the inland kolaces more than those on the freeway.

        Thanks for the kolache tip -
        i'll check it out along with the other baked goods!
        Any CFS or BBQ must haves? I'm also looking for a tasty pieshop, if possible???

          In Corsicana, you MUST got to Collin Street Bakery if you want a good bakery!

          Yes Fruitcake is good... but Pecan Pies, Breads of all kinds, cookies, pies, sweets galore.. My fav is Mini Key Lime Pie and my wife and I both agree the Cheddar Bacon Bread is out of this world!

            Funny. I didn't know they did anything but the fruitcake. My grandma from ohio (we're in DFW) sends us one each year. I pick off the fruit, then we kind of stare at it for a couple of weeks.

              Initially, i was the same way. My mother, who lives south of the metroplex, brought some of the Key Lime Pies once some time ago and I was hooked! The Pecan Pies and Mini Pecan Pies are also equally Delicious!

          2. re: nibbleybits

            If you go to the Czech Stop, I recommend the hot and spicy chubbies with cheese and the Texas Sheet Cake (usually available by the square).

      2. The bad thing about all this is that I get tooo hungry every day reading the new posts... I am taking a reverse of your trip on the 31st... Dallas to Austin for a wedding so let me know if you find anything on the way up as well.
