On the way to visit LBJ’s Ranch out in Stonewall you’ll pass through Hye, Texas. I recommend you stop. What you will find is a sweet, historic restaurant, that serves up scratch-made meals, with local ingredients called Hye Market.
They had a wide variety of sandwiches, salads, and pizza made from Naan bread! It’s counter service, so you head straight to the counter with the giant menu overhead. You can order one of their main staples, or see what specials they’re featuring that day. You can also order local beers and wines, from the wineries that are nearby. They’ll even let you put it in a growler to go!
We placed our order and then grabbed a seat in the extended dining area which is situated in an old historic post office. The post office is actually functioning and is quite fascinating. The space seats about 40 people or so, they sell local goods, and if you ever need to send off a postcard to a far off lover, you can do that here too.
I went with a pork belly sandwich made with homemade pickles, I really can’t turn down pickles and so it just seemed like a great choice for a quick afternoon sandwich. My sister ordered the veggie pizza on Naan bread made with fresh tomatoes, purple onions, and red bell peppers. We loved what we had, it was filling but not overwhelming, and the perfect place to pop in for a quick hill country lunch.
If you ever find yourself in Hye, Texas, or on the way to one of the many wineries nearby. Please be sure to stop by and give them a try, and let them know Dine With Shayda sent you!
