Restaurants & Nightlife

Opie’s Barbecue —  When you go inside the restaurant you choose your meat from a smoker and it’s priced by the pound and that already includes the sauce and pinto beans. You can also buy some sides if you prefer such as coleslaw and corn. Atmosphere is very laidback and you get your food wrapped un a heavy white paper. Excellent food and service.

Angel’s Icehouse – The location is awesome, staff is friendly and accommodating. They have a play area for the kids and feature live music too. They serve amazing burgers and chicken sandwiches. Vegetarian friendly place.  Do try the supreme queso with meat and sour cream.  Very comfortable place to relax and dine.

Its All Good Bar-B-Q – One of the best barbecue places in town. Do try the brisket, sausage, turkey, potato salad, slaw and beans. Service is pretty quick.  The brisket and ribs have that wonderful smoke ring and are quite tender. We recommend ordering the “wet” if you live moist falling apart meat. Ribs are nearly fall off the bone.
