Vinacircle’s recommendations: This is the place to take out of town visitors who come to Texas to see cowboys and eat BBQ. When hungry, stop by one of the several BBQ restaurants, including the famous Billy Bob’s Texas Honky Tonk Kitchen. This place has its own in-door rodeo arena for professional bull riding.
