Cal Bob's closed. I enjoyed Calvin and his crew... great people. The food was delicious. Ir was on our way home, so we ofter did take-out. Very convenient. Sadly, he is closed. Rumor in town is that he moved to Tildon to a restaurant there.

After driving around Kerrville looking for someplace to eat I came across the big red and white BBQ sign. I made a u-turn and came back to the restaurant. When I opened the door the delightful smell of Texas BBQ wafted through the air. I...More
