One of the best parts of visiting the Texas Hill Country is experiencing the delights of authentic Texas cuisine. The little town of Marble Falls is about as authentic as it gets, and there are plenty of delicious eateries for you to enjoy throughout this central Texas community. After you've explored all that Marble Falls has to offer, we're sure that you won't be able to wait to try some central Texas cooking for yourself.
The Real New Orleans Style Restaurant
Even though New Orleans, the true heart of Cajun cooking, is hundreds of miles to the east of Marble Falls, The Real New Orleans Style Restaurant transports you into the flavors and aromas of this Creole capital to enjoy dishes that have that unmistakable bayou appeal. This Marble Falls restaurant is family-owned, and the owners of The Real New Orleans Style Restaurant used to live in New Orleans until their business was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.
The menu at The Real New Orleans Style Restaurant is simple, and the ambiance isn't over-the-top. What really gets customers going, however, is how the cuisine at this Marble Falls eatery mirrors what you'll get when you walk down Decatur Street in downtown New Orleans. The rue is thick enough to cut with a knife, the rice is dirty, and the crawfish étouffée is highly sought after.
Holy Smokes! BBQ & Catering
You won't find any frills at Holy Smokes! BBQ & Catering, and the homemade iced tea is self-serve. However, you aren't going to this genuine Texas barbecue joint for the ambiance; you're going for the beef!
Holy Smokes! BBQ & Catering is family-owned, and the owners love inviting strangers from all over the country to enjoy their authentic Texas cooking. The servings at this restaurant are ample, and if you get lucky, you might get a chance to hear a local musician strumming a guitar while you enjoy your lunch.
If you want to keep a big group fed, remember that Holy Smokes! BBQ & Catering offers catering services for even the largest retreats or family occasions. Whether you eat solo, bring the family, or have your barbecue catered, the prices at Holy Smokes! BBQ & Catering are reasonable, and you'll get the full Texas BBQ experience every time you order.
