Description: This was the very first Clear Springs location. It's actually located in Clear Springs, Texas between Seguin and New Braunfels. The building dates back to 1869 when it was mainly used as a grocery store for the locals. If you are ever in the area, it's worth the trip to check out the history that's behind this popular location. You better come early, standing room only is a common sight here.

Food was meh. Waitress was horrible. Slow, surly, just rude. Shorted one customer $8.00 in change. Had one customer sign his visa and put his phone number, thirty minutes later, he receives a text saying
"Thanks for the tip, a*#h*@#*!" Real classy...

I've been eating here for decades, and they do have the best catfish in the area. However, I just recently broke rank and ordered the Chicken Fried Steak after seeing it voted as one of the best in the state. I'm now faced with a terrible dilema when I go there; Will I have the catfish and shrimp, or will I have the CFS. The CFS has won out the last four visits! It's that good. If you love CFS, you will not be disappointed!
