We were driving from Austin to Houston and saw the reviews for this place. We took a slight detour. Our intention was to see the bakery. The baked goods (sweet and savory) were tasty. That said, we were a little surprised by the number of...More

We've stopped by Hruskas several times to get their famous Kolaches. There has been a line in the bakery every time we've been. Its definitely worth the wait. Great food and the store itself has a "gift shop feel." Lots to look at. The restrooms...More

Love It, Love It and cant get enough of it. Creme Cheese kolaches and oh the sausage kolaches taste so good. A must stop for gas and eats. Pick up local trinkets and such. Good Stuff.

Stopped by to pick up kolache's, a local favorite pasty, Large facility included in a truck stop, but the bakery is a major factor. The baked goods were good, but unless you get there in the morning, the selection dwindles significantly. The kolache's were good,...More

I like Kolaches okay, but I found Hruska's to be better than any others I have had. Dare I say without being staked alive, better than the infamous West, TX kolaches. Oh, and get some cookies to go with your kolaches. The coconut pecan? ones...More

Headed to Austin, we thought there would be more places to stop once you turn on 71—there’s not. Thankfully, we found Hruska’s. Clean restrooms and great burger. Probably the best bacon I’ve ever had on a burger. Not a fan of the pan sausage and...More

Always stop here when traveling through Ellinger. Great kolaches and sausage! Lots of unique gift items and clean bathrooms.

Hruska's is a really big place these days, with a little something for everyone from fuel to food to souvenirs. Restrooms are clean, snack foods variety is off the charts, and the kolache types are pretty insane. Hard to pass up breakfast style with sausage,...More

The choice of sandwhich's is unending. If you can't find something to eat here, you are not very hungry. Sandwhich's are big and filling. This is a routine stop for us when traveling on Hwy 71.

These days, the logical route to central Texas out of Houston is I-10 to Hwy 71, which takes you past Ellinger. Perfectly spaced for a gas/pit stop (with clean rest rooms), go in and get the best kolaches around these parts!

It’s sort of like a rest stop gas station, so in theory, many. There are only a few tables for seating.
