(map) Spicewood Vineyards is a) nearby, b) easy to get to, and c) incredibly scenic, all of which make it a primo destination for wine-tasting. When you arrive, you’ll see acres of vineyards surrounding two “Texas Contemporary” buildings. One is the actual winery,

(map) There are two great things about music at Angel’s: One, the shows are early, starting around 6 or 7. Two, they’re free! Three nights a week, you can enjoy bands like The Troubadillos, The Fabulous Chevelles, and Freddy Powers & Friends, dig into a good chicken-fried steak and still get home in time for […]

(map) Wait, what? A farm with no dirt? That produces some of the most gorgeous produce around? Our minds are still blown by HannaLeigh Farm, a central Texas pioneer in aquaponics. There are several ways to practice this growing (ha!) trend, and they’re all on display at this Spicewood farm. Basically, the plants are grown in […]

(map) We didn’t expect to find so many great green-chile options out West! The burger at J5 weighs in at a whopping half-pound. The beef is hand-shaped for extra juiciness, cooked to order and topped with chopped green chiles, chipotle mayo, and a monster slab of cheddar. This is one of those times to break […]

(map) The legendary music roadhouse rocks an awesome burger, 1/3-pound with the works: grilled green chiles and onions, pepperjack cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, mustard and mayo. It all makes for one delicious hot mess. Especially good when washed down with an ice-cold beer and songs by Gary P Nunn. No wonder it’s famous! Poodie’s Hilltop […]

Owner Paul hails from Australia, and rather than tossing another shrimp on the barbie, he […]

(map) The name may suggest something of a stripper joint. But this cute cafe actually offers a surprising variety of eats and drinks, as well as locally produced coffees, olive oils and vinegars, and even fresh gelato. Located in a Spicewood strip center near Opie’s BBQ, the cafe recently expanded next door and will be offering

(map) Sure, they have creative side dishes like craisin-almond coleslaw and tater-tot casserole, as well as desserts like hot peach cobbler. But real BBQ fans know what it’s all about, and Opie’s definitely delivers on the smoky goodness from the minute you step out of the car. You eat your meal on waxed butcher paper, […]

(map) So far, they’re right: It is all good! These guys opened a few weeks ago in the former RO’s Outpost on 71, and the newly remodeled space is barely recognizable. They don’t mess around when it comes to barbecue, either, hitting all the major touchstones. Smoky beef brisket is available moist or lean (go […]
