The Texas Hill Country is a great area to visit if you like great music, scenery and BBQ. One one of my trips through this beautiful area I discovered The New Braunfels Smokehouse – a great local find that offers their own hickory meats, cheeses, jellies, and other goodies that can be bought at the location or ordered online. They opened in 1952, and the restaurant at the location is fantastic. Imagine thick cut bacon, hand sliced turkey and swiss cheese on homemade toasted bread. It is heaven on a plate! The Chef salad is huge, and comes complete with your choice of house made dressings.
This is a stop that I make every time I’m in the area, but if you aren’t finding yourself in this area any time soon go online and experience this Hill Country tradition for yourself.
