On the way down to TRF and the Forbidden Gardens, we hit up the tiny town of Schulenberg (along I-10 S, Map). It’s hardly a blip on the map but it’s home to the famous Oakridge Smokehouse & Restaurant. We always have made a point to stop at this joint every time we go through south Texas. All I know is that they have the best kolaches, beef jerky, and rock candy in the whole world!
The building and it’s signs are unique and misshapen. I’m
not sure if it’s because the building’s super old or if it was done on purpose. Either way, it makes for a fun experience. There are old fashioned fortune teller machines at the entrance and if you like the Bible, this place is the motherlode. They have lots of portable games, books, and religious knick-knacks. Oh, and the fudge is to die for!
