This is the epitome of small town Texas. It is really all of the things that make Texas great. It's fun for adults and kids. If you're in the area on a Saturday night, do yourself a favor and go!

From Memorial Day to Labor Day, our Saturday nights are spent on the cornmeal dusted concrete dance floor of Crider's Dance and Rodeo. These days, we have a standing reservation at a picnic table on the river side of the dance floor, but when our girls were little, we would situate ourselves along the parking lot fence so that we...

My Grandparents first went to Crider's in the 1930's, not much has changed. Still run by the same family with the same values. If you want to see what Texas was like for the past three generations it is a must. Go early around 8:30 pm and have a hamburger then stay for the dance, let the younger generation close... More

Headed here to enjoy and evening out and enjoy our favorite band Jody Nix. We first ate at the cafe and there is a somewhat varied menu of fried items. We ordered a burger/fries and chicken strips/fries with two cokes. This came to a little over $16. Make a note that they DO NOT TAKE PLASTIC. They only accept cash... More

I visited Crider's for a night of two and three-step. The band also played some CW waltz, CW swing, CW cha-cha and a number of line dances for those who don't partner dance. I even managed to dance a bolero, which is not something you'd expect of a country western open-aired "hall" with a concrete dance floor. At the start... More

Drove to Crider's for some food, take in some Rodeo action and topped off the night with some Texas Two Stepping. The food is reasonable and the best deal are the burgers, the Rodeo was fun and exciting with a real Family friendly Atmosphere, saw Bull Riding, Calf Roping, Bronco riding and several other events. After the Rodeo we walked... More

Crider's is an outdoor dance hall that is open during the summer months. They have great live music on the weekends, and you will see people of all ages two stepping around the floor. This is a Hill Country tradition. Food is available, but mediocre. The real draw is the dancing, and the rodeo that happens prior to the opening... More
