A plug for Rocky's Roadhouse

A long time ago, The Hofbrau was a pretty good place to go after work to have a beer, listen to some live music, and maybe get something to eat. But over the years it got less good until it finally closed. Now it's Rocky's Roadhouse, and it's a pretty good place to go after work and get a beer, listen to some live music, and maybe get something to eat. It's happy hour until 7:00 (including dollar drafts), and from Wednesday through Saturday, there's live music from 7:00 to 10:00.

There's no cover and no walls, but there is a roof. The outdoorsishness of it means that it can get a little muggy on those Southeast Texas summer evenings. Unless you sit inside, in which case there's no cover but there are walls and a cieling and air conditioning. But since the band plays outside, it sort of defeats the purpose.

I went there last Saturday just after happy hour ended and had a few beers and a passable chicken fried steak while listening to Cypress play a mostly acoustic bluesy/folksy/country mix of covers and their own originals. They were pretty good, if you like that sort of thing. And I do.

I expect I'll be back.

I haven't been there on a Thursday yet. I guess I'll have to check it out.
