The Incredible Texas State Restaurant That’s Way Out In The Boonies But So Worth The Drive
Sometimes the very best dining requires you to venture out of city limits. You’ll find this old-fashioned, down-home steakhouse quite literally in the middle of nowhere (AKA Winchester, Texas), but it’s absolutely worth the drive.
This historic building has been in operation since 1913, serving as a bakery, general store, and market before becoming a restaurant. Amazingly, it is still largely in its original condition.
Outside on the wall, you'll find this cute little postcard-esque sign. It's a perfect family photo-op to ensure you'll never forget your trip to Murphy's!
Inside is just as adorable. The mirrored bar is reminiscent of a saloon back in the days of the Old West, so don't be surprised if the bartender slides a sarsaparilla down to you.
And as for the food, boy, are you in for a treat. Rib Eyes, Sirloins, Filet Mignons...Murphy's has it all, and it's cooked to your very own definition of perfection.
There are over ten "extra" items you can add to your steak, from grilled onions to stuffed crab and everything in between. The sides are scrumptious as well - especially the wild rice and loaded baked potato.
If you take away one thing from this article, let it be this: MAKE A RESERVATION. No matter how far out in the boonies it is, the word about how amazing this hidden gem truly is has spread like wildfire, and people flock from all over Texas to see what the hype is all about.
