When the sign said "Jerky Capital of the World" we just had to check them out! We had a simple but tasty breakfast in the deli and then spent 30 minutes perusing the wares in their country store. Their old fashioned jerky is fabulous and their "bayou goo" fudge is to die for! My mother-in-law enjoyed the saltwater taffy we... More

First time to stop. Crazy busy. Very clean restrooms. Got jalapeno cheese sausage & boudin since I'm a Louisiana girl! Both very good. Also got some jerky for snacking in the car. Service is very fast. I'll stop again when I go that way again.

We will stop here every time we come through TX. Large, clean and friendly with tons of neat products to browse and snacks, drinks, and foods to choose from.

Definitely plant to stop here if you are driving from Houston to Texas. The thought of exotic smoked jerky, bbq brisket and such makes the anticipation and ride perfect. Once there, nice clean facilities--so go. Just recognize the bbq is just average and the jerky...

You know you are in Texas when there is a six shooter shaped BBQ pit at the entrance. Lots of local products and wonderful BBQ. Much better than stopping at Buccees in my opinion.

I always have the jalapeno and cheese sausage. So good. It's quick and it's tasty. Go. You will love it. And the smell is heavenly.

Pork chops are unbelievably thick! A little pricy but good. It's worth the stop and it has nice clean bathrooms.
