I have someone who is going to help me make a map that can be used to help riders find some grub in whatever area of Tx they will be traveling. It is going to take a few weeks, but in the end we may have a cool tool to pass along recommended restaurants.

We should be able to add places as more info comes in.

That's going to be so kewl, thanks so much. That's going to be really nice.

We tried Catfish Haven today because we found it here. I had the lunch special catfish, it was good, not great, fried corn was nice too. It's a place we'll keep in mind. I'll try the cajun catfish next time.

The test version of the map is looking good and I'll be sharing it with Jack so we can get it edited and then get it out to TWT. Keep your places coming and we will have a good tool to use.

I've contributed nothing because the Buffalo is submitting for our group.

But he, and I don't think anyone else, has mentioned the Bent Rim in Leakey. I thought it was going to be such a tourist-y rip off, and was so pleasantly surprised that it's reasonably priced really really good food. Burger style only.

Tony has done a great job.

Here's a peek at what the map is looking like. It's still a work in progress, but it's too cool not to share.

Ideas are welcome, but don't be too critical. It is an volunteer job.

He doesn't get down to the coast much? I've explored the Rockport to Port A area and have found many good places to indulge in my favorite pastime. :eat:There is a guy on ADVrider that has a web page thats called Ride to Eat. He covers the whole USA and has many Texas eateries on his map, I've contributed a few places myself. Almost everytime I leave the house I have a destination in mind to stop and eat.:rider: If anything I need to start riding more and eating less.

There are a lot of suggested places not on the map yet.

It's pretty easy to spot that the majority of suggestions have come from the Dallas area, East Tx, and the Austin area.

I am hoping when riders see the map they will add some that have been overlooked.

I also like Hairsmith's post about places that are great to picnic or just take a nice break. Still pondering if those should be on a map by themselves. If this map goes well, I am thinking a map that would have great places to pull over and enjoy a break along with some of the information from the thread about all of the cool places that Texas has to check out (scenic overviews and historical sites that would make a good break spot or a destination).

I think the picnic/RTE idea is a pretty good one. The East Tx crew did one at Love's Lookout N of Jacksonville and I really enjoyed the ride and the visit. I bet if we put our heads together we would find a lot of places that would work well for that sort of event. Especially on mild weather days.

Definitely add JW's to the map, they've only been open a couple years but a worthy stop. Carmine TX, half way between Brenham and Giddings on 290.

Burrito Express in Winnie TX, order the #9 fried and tacos to go :clap: :eat:(you might avoid packing the chorizo taco's in your backpack, extremely greasy but to die for, literally:lol2:)!
The map is wrong, it's on 124 S. of 10 next to the Market Basket, next door to Dairy Queen.:eat: :clap:

My other 3 have already been mentioned but a :thumb: goes out to the Southern Flyer at the Brenham Airport.

No I don't, but you have to remember most of these locations are from other riders and I've never been to them. Post up your coast locations and Jack or I will update the map.

Weather permitting I'm going to visit some of the painted churches this weekend.

Can anyone suggest a good lunch stop in the Schulenburg area?

I have all the locations I have received on the map. I am currently getting the locations in the index (side bar) moved into the correct order so please bear with us on that part of the map. There are a few I could not locate with the information provided. If you would, check your suggestions and see if you can give me a little more detail for the ones of yours that I missed. Some of the ones in question are:

Drifters BBQ in Huntsville
Mama Chloe's in Leakey
Barrett Street Cafe in Wylie
Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant in Study Butte
Gil's BBQ in Ellinger
Cicle (Circle?) V BBQ in Goldwaithe
Road Runner in Nash
The Bluebell for pie

I noticed a couple of the location tags were out of place after I got them set so you might look at your locations to make sure they are in the right place.

Any problems you see with any of the locations either PM me or Jack or post the information here and Jack or I will make the corrections.

Got any more locations? Post them up and we will get them on the map.

Thumper's Catfish Emporium - Smithville, Texas (seasonal :lol2:)
:rofl:
That one took me a little while to figure out :suicide: ... might have been easier if I had gone to bed :sleep: after my night shift instead of staying up to work on this. :rofl:

I have not placed on the map the 50 locations from Texas Monthly(?) that RB posted unless they were included in one of the other posts. Will look at adding some or all of them at a later date.
