Anyone remember a little restaurant near Rowena(Runnels Co)

  • c

In October 1980 (or 1979), coming back from a football game in Lubbock with parents, we stopped at a little restaurant near Rowena, I believe. A friend from Ballinger had recommended it. As I recall, it was on the side of the road. Granted that it seems most of the past was better the older we get, but I remember having a steak that was as good as what my dad used to (and still does) grill over mesquite. The little place had a lot of character, also.

Anyone remember it? Is it still there?

  1. Sounds like you're talking about the Lowake Steak House, RR 1, Rowena, TX 76875-9801, phone (915)442-3201. It's a West Texas legend.
