Field Trip: Gristmill River Restaurant

Texas Tough
Ribs with Jack Daniels Sauce
 Nestled under the old water tower, peering amongst the oak trees, high upon a bluff over looking the Guadalupe River sits the Gristmill River Restaurant in the Gruene (pronounced "green") Historic District.  The New Braunfels, Texas restaurant is located in an old two-and-a-half story brick boiler room, a surviving portion of a 19th century cotton gin that was destroyed by fire in a 1922. The Gristmill also is listed on The National Register of Historic Places.  It is a very popular get-away for Texans and offers a laid back casual dining experience.

This happened to be where my husband wanted to dine for his birthday last weekend.  I believe he dreams about the half rack of Jack Daniel's Ribs and of course that is exactly what he got.  They were quite delicious, I'll admit I snuck two pieces off his plate.
