College Station Caches?

14 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

We're making a short road trip to College Station next weekend to watch cool daughter Beth in a quidditch tourney. First time to town for me and I'm looking for recommendations for caches, interesting places and good burgers. We'll be too busy for the big series outside town, but the Bonfire memorial and some of the favorited caches in town look interesting. She'll be playing near Kyle Field and we'll be staying on Hwy 6. Any comments or suggestions from the A&M faithful?

That area is loaded with caches.  We haven't been there in a few years.

This cache is fun:     Hidden Deck  GCT570 - It's a tough one to find, but you'll like it when you do.

 

A great place to eat is:  Chicken Oil Company in Bryan  http://www.chickenoilco.com/.   It's a little rustic, but the Chicken Fried Steak is "plate" sized.  the "large" version of that is bigger than plate sized....

Bob, stop in Lockhart and eat at Black's:  http://www.blacksbbq.com/  Their brisket is so tender, you can cut it with a cheap plastic fork!

Not exactly on the way to College Station, unless you're going by way of San Marcos!

Good advice on Lockhart, I stop at City Market in Luling and Black's in Lockhart when I'm going to San Marcos. Have tried Smitty's and Kruez's too but like Black's best. Did check on College Station and the best place sounds like Rudy's. We will see.

Bob, to me, City Market had better ribs, but Black's flat out did themselves on the briskett AND the historical photos and atmosphere at Black's is 500% better.

+1,Bert. The folks at Black's were nicer, but the crew in the smoke room at City Market is pretty tough to beat. They make some excellent sausage, and I know it's a sin, but their peppery orange sauce is my favorite. Still have a small bottle of it in the fridge.

We usually stop at City Market on our way to Fredericksburg.  We're headed up again next month, but I think we'll go by Black's and give it a try.

Build a little time into the schedule, stop at both and compare. Some brisket,ribs and sausage from both places will fill you and a cooler up.

A great taste of Texas.

Here's a link to a segment of the Daytripper when he visits Lockhart and all 4 BBQ joints.

Turns out there is a "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" featured restaurant called Hullabaloo Diner in CS.

It gets pretty mixed reviews. Any body been there? T-Bone Tom's was on DDD and survived the experience,

but some places don't do so well.

I was there last August caching around the area.  We ate at Koppe Bridge it was really good food.  There are two locations.  We ate at the one on Wellborn.
