Hutto Cotton Gin and Silos

IMG_5694

The City of Hutto has a historic Cotton Gin.  The city is located along Highway 79, just East of Round Rock and right along the railroad tracks.  Beginning back in the late 1930s, farmers would come to Hutto and deliver their cotton crops.  Today, on this overcast and cloudy evening, the biggest silo was a backdrop for the Sunset Music Series and a great band called Lost & Nameless.  What a great idea!

Texan Cafe

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… 🙂
