We have all of our meat processed here and hands down it is the best! And the food here is so yummy and if you have never had a pie from here, you MUST!

Far enough out of Houston for lunch. This huge place has clean bathrooms, good barbecue, a bakery, specialty foods, a meat counter with a dazzling number of sausage and jerky choices. This is what a Bucees would look like if it was real. Oh, poppy seed kolaches, need I say more?

There is a good selection of sandwiches available in a cafeteria format. I got a 2 meat BBQ plate with ribs and brisket. The meat was good ( not great) and the portions were generous. Fountain drinks are offered and there is no alcohol. They have a meat counter and cheese and sausage to take home.

We live in the community and because of my expanding waistline, I have to limit the number of times a week that I stop by Prasek's. Everything is good... my favorites: Bacon, Egg, Cheese rolls, Jalapeno, Ham, Cheese pigs, Rueben sandwiches, Cuban sandwiches, Peppered Turkey Jerky... the list could go on for a while.

"The best brisket sandwich" my husband has ever had. Clean restrooms. Friendly staff. Lots of yummy looking things to entice you as you wait for your order.

We stop here on occasion to get Kolaches and my favorite the Dewberry Tart. OMG, if you haven't had a Dewberry Tart, they are so good. Buying gas here is cheaper than in town most of the time. The bathrooms are always clean and there's always warm water coming out of the spigots. Eating lunch there is wonderful. The Chicken... More

This is my favorite stop! You must try their Kolaches and bakery items. They have a full meat counter and they have a great selection of Jerky. If you need a hearty lunch or dinner you can't go wrong with trying something off their menu. Restrooms are always clean!

My husband and I always stop here when we are on the road. They have good food choices. Try the flat iron steak sandwich! The restrooms are always clean.
