I went in because the sign said it had a soda bar! It was delish!! It is truly a 'general' store with a little of everything. Definitely a fun 'stop and browse' kinda place.

This store is huge, and includes an old fashioned soda and ice cream counter. Great collection of interesting souvenirs and also home made candy, salsa, apple butters, etc.

What's to say about the General Store! It's always fun to go and browse around. The staff is always courteous and helpful, and if you can't find something to take home......well, you're just not looking! We visit the General Store on every visit to Jefferson! I have to leave with a bag full of chocolate covered coffee beans.....lol. The floats... More

Could spend lots of time here. Just a step back in time. Love this place. Candies and sodas from my childhood. Grabbed a scoop of Bluebell while we were there. Just a sweet experience!

The name says it all. Tasty variety of food and candy. Lots of decorations for man cave and she shacks. There are toys every child would love to have.

This was our first stop in town. It's like most other "general stores". Lots of small town appeal. Lots of sweets, souvenirs, and etc... Very similar to Gruene, TX general store.

Had lots of stuff, old and new. Most things were a bit pricey, either considered an antique or it was a touristy souvenir. Nice to walk through and look through some history.

I really expected this to be a glorified t-shirt shop, but this charming and entertaining store offers food, souvenirs, collectibles, clothing, and YES, 5-cent coffee! It was so much fun shopping here, discovering all the fun goodies. We bought souvenirs for the grandkids, chocolates from the candy case, coffee, fried Cajun peanuts, a scarf, and party cracker seasoning -- an... More

Simple adored this place! The ambiance was fun with old memorabilia everywhere. All of the staff members were friendly and attentive. The malts, floats, 'moody' dogs were yummy. Bought tons of old school candy for my kids. A MUST visit here!
