Staying at Perennial Vacation Club, had the Tuesday night acoustic session listed as local thing to do...so glad we stopped in!! Lots of locals playing, as well as a couple passing through. Such great music, really enjoyed the talents of the players and singers! Bar itself is very nostalgic, with lots of photos and mementos of by-gone days. Excellent!!

Went to a honky-tonk, great atmosphere and super music! Service was extremely quick at the bar and the venue has great authentic feel to it as soon as you walk in.

Good beer and a very nice service but really don't care for the smoking, I'm pretty sure we were the only ones not smoking, most uncomfortable bar stools of any bar I have been in. Cool music though

Might have been great if we could have tolerated the smoke smell. If your a smoker you may enjoy this place!

This is a true Texas honky tonk. If you like good "traditional" country music, cold beer, and saw dust on the dance floor then this is your place. There's not many places like this left! A true gem!

Yep, it's a bar, dimly lit and still welcomes smokers, little has changed since I first came here about 40 years ago. Cold beer, free jam session on Saturday afternoon. You won't find a wine list or drink menu. Dance floor complete with sawdust. Family friendly, great prices and just plain fun.

The most amusing little bar in cowboy capitol of the world. You need to have a beer here (or two) and put a quarter to music machine to dance on a floor cover with wood dust. And don't forget to examine what is on the walls!
