“Unbeatable Kolaches!”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

This place may look like a gas station/tourist trap, but there is a lot of history to Prasek's and it is a favorite place for El Campo, Louise and Hillje locals to by meat and fresh pastries. The kolaches are very good; the sweet ones as well as the "pigs."
Try the ham and cheese with jalapeño ones if you need a little spice in your life! Another good product is the jerky.
Definitely worth stopping in

Reviewed January 3, 2012

I love their sausage pigs (pig in the blankets) and their kolaches especially the dewberry ones.

“A MUST-STOP”
Reviewed August 3, 2011

Prasek's Hillje Smokehouse is a “must stop” whenever I am am on US Highway 59 near El Capo.
It had been a while since my last visit. The recent renovataions and expansions are very nice.
Was glad to see that the quality and selection of jerky was still there.
Was impressed with the clean restrooms and ejoyed a kolache from the bakery.
