Concert Hall
$$
“This is a place you must visit. There is live music (folks go to two-step), food, and good ole Texas atmosphere. Check the calendar to see what days they're open and who the live performance is.”

Mexican Restaurant

“The food, ambiance and margaritas are great here. This is located nearby but in a small town called Helotes which is really underrated. Helotes and Boerne are some of the cutest small towns right by San Antonio and really offer a breath of fresh air to city dwellers. ”

Bar
“This is our favorite place to go at night.....after the kids are in bed of course. This is a "happening" and authentic Texas country bar. It's not a sleepy bar by any means. Plan on ordering your favorite drink, dancing with your sweetie, and listening to high quality live Texas country music. We come here to go dancing a couple of times a month. It's really the best country bar in town!”
