The historic dining room at the Salado Stagecoach Inn has been open and operating since 1861. Come visit and dine at the "Oldest Restaurant in the State of Texas"! We feature delicious dishes that can only be complimented with our famous "Strawberry Kiss" and yummy hush puppies. We look forward to serving you!
