I happen to be off on Friday due to the holiday. I've been there several times but never had their food. I might just brave the heat.This being a holiday weekend many folks may have plans. Heck, I don't even know for sure what might unfold for me as one friend is beckoning that I venture out to Kerrville at some point over the weekend. (not that I would recommend riding that area's fabulous roads unless you enjoy holiday weekend parade rides)
However, in the interest of anyone looking for a Friday lunch destination to commemorate this particular holiday through the name of the city where it is located, I offer up:
Lueckemeyer Independence General Store
Replete with a shade tree, lunch, and country charm.
Need to call to verify current policies and operations ( that is, are they serving lunch? ) as I don't Facebook and that seems to be the store's only presence on the interwebz.
EDIT: have verified that they are cooking lunch daily from 11:00 - 1:00.
That is precisely what prompted me to suggest it. I've ridden by it several times in the past few weeks on the way to other lunch destinations and can't remember the last time I stopped in for a burger.I have not stopped there in years even tho I ride by there about once a month.
