Fred's Texas Cafe

Fred's Texas Café has been around since 1978 serving spectacular food, beer and live music, but lately it might seem a little out of place. A few years back, the cultural district was developed into shiny, new upscale wine bars and theaters. An offer was made to buy the land under Fred's and turn it into a parking lot. Fred said no. And anyone who likes local Texas music over a plate of nachos and a beer is grateful. It's not exactly a honky-tonk, but the numerous cattle brand symbols covering the wall and the fenced performance space out back definitely let you know you're in Texas.
