This Unique Restaurant In Texas Will Give You An Unforgettable Dining Experience

I can picture it now: sitting around the huge dining table with the entire family, passing enormous bowls of mashed potatoes, gravy, vegetables, and baskets of rolls around to each other while we shared aspects of our day with each other. Everything was collective, nothing individualistic. Is that a common occurrence at restaurants today? Absolutely not – even the most “Texan” of them all are still set up like a modern establishment: small, square tables, a menu divided into appetizers, soup/salad, entrees, and dessert, encouraging each person to order only one item, and an atmosphere that lends itself to formality and talking in hushed tones across the table to your family and friends so as not to disturb other guests.

The Pickett House isn’t like that at all.

If you want to be reminded of Sunday evenings on the farm (or just at grandma’s house, wherever that may be), this is the place for you. The restaurant is part of an adorable village museum in Woodville called The Heritage Village where you can see replicas of a blacksmith, barber shop, and other old-timey southern buildings. The Pickett House is decorated like the inside of a barn, and the food is entirely family style (and all you can eat, just like at home!) There is a set menu each day and every table is served unlimited portions of every item. This little gem is the definition of southern comfort, which is why you HAVE to check it out the next time you’re in Woodville.
