“Austin’s most beloved honky tonk. Great bands nightly. Two-step lessons from the owner’s daughter weekends at 8. Check out the room full of photos of the greats who've graced the small stage - Dolly Parton, Willie, Kris Kristoferson, Kitty Wells, Bob Wills and George Straight. Once on the edge of town in a dirt parking lot, this institution has stood 50+ years while Austin grew up around it. ”
