What goes through your mind when you pull into the parking lot of the restaurant that you picked out, only to see that the line of people waiting on tables has gone out the door? Are you willing to wait?
In College Station it is not uncommon to have long waits in the evenings and on weekends. This morning, it occurred to me that it would take less time to drive to Snook for a mouth watering steak, than it would to wait in line for a table at a popular College Station restaurant.
Have you discovered Snook yet?
Snook is a friendly farming community located 12 miles west of College Station on Highway 60.
Although residents are very proud of their high school football and basketball teams, they know that Snook is home to some of the best kolaches, steaks, sausage and chicken fried bacon around. Whether you are coming from Bryan, College Station, Lake Sommerville or Caldwell, the Czech-Tex Steak House and Bakery, Sodolak's Original Country Inn and Slovacek's are all well worth the 15 minute drive. (If you can't make the drive, Slovacek Sausage can be found in grocery stores across Texas.)
Just a little hint....Snook may not be the best town to visit if you are serious about sticking to your diet.
Snook is also home to what has been described as "the Brazos Valley area's most anticipated event," Chilifest. It is held every April at the Snook Rodeo Arena grounds. The charitable fundraiser has donated over $700,000 to a numerous charities since 2000.
Basically, Chilifest is a HUGE party in a pasture that benefits a number of great causes.
It features two days of musical entertainment and a chili cook-off. Headliners have included Willie Nelson, George Jones, Merle Haggard, Sammy Kershaw, Mark Chestnut, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Tracy Lawrence, Robert Earl Keen, and many others.
