Default Comanche, TX and surrounding area...

Headed over to Proctor Lake for a little retirement practice and celebrating our 44th anniversary next month.

I need some eatery advice, if y'all got any ideas or recommendations... Ain't got to be fancy just darn good...


Appreciate any information...

Burgers don't get any better than the Priddy Store.

A bit more upscale ... Harvest on the East side of the courthouse square in Comanche is really good.

Moment of interest: take a look at the historical marker on the Comanche square under the oaks. Then let your imagination run like that of a child.

Try the Priddy Store for lunch. About 20 miles south of Copperas Creek on hwy 16. They may have a website. Good old country cooking. If no website they post their menu on FB.

Millionaire at Lake Proctor is much better Mexican than Miguel's. Matt Daddy's on the square is a great burger/wing joint. Rockin J's coming into town in the old Chevron Station is a great cafe to eat at. Star Beau's on the square is another really good place to eat. The southwest Clucker at Star Beu's is excellent. Other than those above you have DQ, Subway, Sonic, Chicken Express and Partners Place. The above are all in Comanche

Woody's in Dublin has a good steak.

That would be Cook's Fish Barn. Also worth the drive ... a Friday and Saturday only place. We go up there from time to time from Priddy.

Can't believe that Priddy store is still there, had a lease in Indian Gap about 15 yrs ago and the school and the store and feed store only thing there, liquor store just outside of town towards Goldthwaite too..
Mary's @ Strawn, excellent chicken fried steak.
gas station/truck stop by Gore Bros feed store,in Comanche pretty good food.

MISS that landowner nicest rancher I EVER met!

If you make it as far as Blanket, check out the Methodist church there. Was one of the charges my Pops had when I was 3-5 yoa. Very old building. Dont' know if the parsonage is still standing next to it, where we lived. Also, look up Texas Historical Markers for the area. And take notes on what ones yall'd like to visit. There used to be a Dr. Pepper plant in Dublin that made DP with real sugar. But I think it recently re-closed. So you might look it up first. They used to do tours.

Brownwood used to have an A&W drive-in. But don't know if it's still standing. And Underwoods BBQ has been there for ever. Now I'm beginning to really tell my age.

Just lost a lease north of Comanche. I liked Mattdaddy's on the square in Comanche for good burgers and great fried zucchini. There's a fancy-ish place also on the square that I never tried Mexican place on the east side of town was ok. Couple of places in Deleon that were supposed to be good but I never tried 'em. Definitely liked Mary's in Strawn and hard 8 BBQ in Stephenville was pretty good.

For real Mexican food go to Dublin, El Rinconcito next to Woodys is the best. Granny Clark's in Dublin for country cooking.
