Tried something new on our drive home to Dallas.
We had pulled pork, turkey and brisket. All were moist and tender. Chicken fried Chicken was good too. Awesome hand cut fries and sweet potato waffle fries. Great atmosphere--would be a fun dinner place!

Stopped by the police station (on purpose) and asked for a good place to eat in town. They gave me a couple of selections the closest of which was the Ice House. Took a while for them to notice and seat me. Lunch crowd it was busy. Once seated though the service was fine and they took good care of me. There were only two waiters and they were hopping but they did a good job. Ordered a brisket sandwich on special and it was very good. Had a variety of BBQ sauces to choose from. The food came quickly and was a really good sandwich. I will eat there again someday.

After reading reviews and having locals recommend Ice House, we tried it for dinner. Dinner was just okay. We did not feel liking having BBQ, so our options felt very limited. We had chicken fried chicken and a grilled chicken sub. Both were average -- neither good nor bad.

The hotel staff recommended this place and we were not disappointed. The BBQ was outstanding and the homemade pickles are not to be missed.

Everything we ate was delicious...hamburger, pulled pork & catfish. Sweet tea perfect. Guac & chips...delicioso. Choc cake...yummy!
While we dined we were approached by several employees to see if we needed anything, how we liked things, etc.
Just 1 hiccup...took a good 5 minutes to be waited on for
drinks (by a manager or
super). But food came out in reasonable time.
Will def visit again on our next road trip.
