Stables Cafe

No horsin' around -- just good grub

Stables Cafe is the perfect place to put on the feedbag. In 1889 it was the E. E. Tallman Flour, Feed and Wagon Yard. You could rent a horse or hack, stable your steed, buy your feed, catch a stagecoach but you couldn’t get a barbecue sandwich.

Now you can – and ribs, sausage, hot links, ham – all Texas-style, little sweet, little spicy barbecue. The extensive menu covers a lot of other options, too. The big salad bar in the center of the restaurant is a big hit. And you certainly won’t go away hungry after one of their meals.

Here’s a secret – you won’t find these listed on the menu. Ask for the corn nuggets – tasty little bites – like tater tots only better!

As the livery stables went the way of the horse and buggy, Mr. Tallman concentrated his interests on automobiles and converted the stables to a garage. He subsequently ran a cab and bus service for the town and opened one of the first car dealerships – selling Fords and Oldsmobiles. The décor here is eclectic but you’ll see lots of auto memorabilia on the walls and counters.
