    If you are coming from Houston or San Antonio, make the diversion to City Market in Luling or Smitty's in Lockhart for the best in smoked meats (specifically brisket) that Texas has to offer.

    I also second the recommendation of Habanero's for dinner Friday night or breakfast Satruday morning

      We always make it a point to make it to Habaneros mexican Cafe located on Oltorf. Family owned and run for the last 10+ years. Great food, great atmosphere.
