    So I was driving down I-10 today and stopped off in Schulenburg (around mile marker 674 or so). Popped into a place on the north side of the freeway called Oakridge Smokehouse.

    Tried the buffet, it sucked. While walking out, I glanced over and noticed some jerky. Took a second look and saw they also had baked goods.

    So, I snag some jerky for the ride (since the buffet sucked) and a loaf of raisin bread. The other stuff looked pretty good too, but I didn't want to spend too much if their counter goods matched their buffet goods.

    HOLY CRAP!!! The bread was GREAT!! We've already gone through the entire loaf. If you ever, and I mean EVER, pass this place, get a loaf. You will not be disappointed (provided this is their usual quality). If it isn't, well, it was only $4.25.

    BTW, the jerky was also pretty good. Is $8.50 a pound iirc.


    EDIT: pricing mistake on jerky ... is $25 a pound :(

    People need to try this bread!

    BTW, if anyone knows of some great raisin cinammon bread here in Houston, let me know. Oakridge is 90+ miles from home.

    I have family in San Antonio, so I usually stop at Frank's across I10 from the Oakridge Smokehouse. My wife does't like Frank's for some reason, but she likes the breakfast buffet at Oakridge Smokehouse. Are you sure about the $8.50 a pound on jerky? If it is $8.50, I'm going to stop there the next time I go to SA. I usually get jerky for $18 to $20 a pound. Will try the bread as well.

    I'm pretty sure it was $8.50. The thick stuff was easier to bite off than the thin stuff. We'll be heading down that way soon, will recheck the price.

    It's about 30 min Northwest off I-10 on 71 near Lagrange.

    Weikel's Bakery. Amazing bakery, great sandwiches, kolaches must be eaten to be believed. Also try their "Honey Bees" they are like cinnamon rolls but with honey and walnut/pecan instead of plain white sugar. Amazing. They have a jerky selection but I've only tried it a few times.

    Every time I trip over to Austin I get a loaf of bread and kolaches from there. Been a loyal customer for over 8 years now.

    Well DB, I just got back from a bread run. That jerky is $25 a pound. Don't know where I got $8.50. All I can figure is that's how much I bought that time, lol.

    Gonna have to try Weikel next.
