Blue Quail Deli

On a recent trip back from the coast, we stopped for lunch in Goliad at Blue Quail Deli, just off the courthouse square. The Southwest grilled-chicken sandwich was delicious, fresh and served on cracked wheat that is baked on site. My husband had potato soup that had large pieces of potato—it was the best he’d had!  The server was friendly and the service efficient. It was a great place to stop, and we’ll plan to lunch there again.

The Star Drug Store

The Star Drug Store in Galveston is back in business as a restaurant. They have Sunday brunch with live music, a real old-fashioned soda fountain with all the goodies, and the burgers are good, too.

Star Drug Store is at 510 23rd St.; 409/766-7719; www.galvestonstardrug.com

  

Del Sol

In a city where there are many fine Mexican restaurants (San Antonio), Del Sol is perhaps the best.  The food is excellent, the dining room is light and airy (well-shaded patio dining is also available), the wait staff is friendly and expert, and the prices are astonishingly reasonable.  The chipotle enchiladas are great, but the fajitas will knock your socks off!

 

Marguerite Kownslar, San Antonio

Del Sol is at 2267 NW Military Hwy.; 210/525-8150.

 

2 Ole Biddys Cafe

There is a little deli/coffee shop in Odessa called 2 Ole Biddys with big portions of home cooking, reasonable prices, and a quaint atmosphere.

2 Ole Biddys Cafe is at 3952 E. 42nd St., Ste. N; 432/362-0422.

 

Creekhaven Inn

My girlfriends and I just wanted to get away from our daily routines for a while.  I chose Creekhaven Inn in Wimberley.  I don’t think I’ve enjoyed a weekend more!  Guests drive down a winding road to arrive upon the fairytale-like “cottage.”  Beautiful cypress trees and greenery are all around.  There’s even a babbling creek.  Bill and Pat Appleman are gracious and good-humored hosts.  Pat baked her own breakfast pastries each morning.  We did not want to leave.

Creekhaven Inn is at 400 Mill Race Lane; 512/847-9344; www.creekhaveninn.com
