Thought we would stop here on the way to Houston instead of the usual Buccees stop. It's beautiful and smells amazing and staff was very nice and helpful. You can find anything to satisfy but the prices are almost double, especially wine.

They have very delicious sandwiches with fresh meat and ingredients. Very good servings. So many items to select when you browse from choice meats, baked items, coffee, ice cream and also a knick knack shop.

I live in the RGV....and Prasek's has been a must stop every time we/I go to Houston. A-Must-Stop....pit stop. It doesn't matter if it's a meal time or not. I've always had either a sliced brisket or chopped barbeque sandwich which are way above average....More
