Stopped here for a quick bite traveling between Austin and Houston. Grilled cheese sandwich with bacon is highly recommended. Quick and friendly service as well.

We visited this family owned restaurant for lunch today, and what a pleasant surprise! The mashed potatoes were absolutely the BEST I've ever had. You certainly don't need to put gravy on them to make them moist! I could have made my meal on those...More

This might be a trade secret. Hmm. However, try calling a manager and see if they would be willing to give it to you. I'm sure if you tried a few recipes then you could figure it out. Happy hunting.
