Classic hole in the wall. Food from 'The Pig Pen' is excellent, some of the finest pulled pork we've had. Beer is cold and atmosphere is great. We will continue to return here.

One of our must-stop locations whenever we're in Hill Country. Love the backroads vibe of the joint. We enjoy the mix of locals with visitors . . . all of whom are enjoying a beverage while listening to live music if you're there at night....More
