Downtown Hutto is a rather lonely place at night. One restaurant and bar operation stays open until midnight on Friday nights. The rest of the city is left to the Hippos – the local mascot.
For lunch today, we headed over to the Texan Cafe in Hutto. My friends got chicken fried steaks and I got the chicken fried chicken with niblet corn, fried okra, and iced tea. As you can see from the menu board, this place is pretty Texas. But the best part is the pies – yes, the pies! What place do you know of that has a pie happy hour? The Texan Cafe has that. From a fully stocked pie case, I chose the Snickers Pie and it was totally yummy. We paid for our food, waddled out of the place and I was unsuccessful in getting a photo of my friends on top of the Hutto Hippo (the town mascot). Next time… 🙂
