Next time you find yourself driving through the West Texas desert, make a pit stop in Lajitas. This dusty ghost town has, quite possibly, the most absurd claim to fame of all time: a late mayor who just so happened to be a goat with an affinity for beer. Although the original goat mayor is now deceased, one of his (alleged) descendants now rules the town, and you can visit him right outside of the general store. Lajitas just might be the quirkiest small town in Texas.
