If Texans are famous for one thing, it’s barbecue. And while the Lone Star State specializes in the exquisite artistry behind sizzling meat and spices on a grill, the little village of Salado is living proof of Texas’s superiority in many other culinary styles, from fine wine and dining to light bistro fare and baked goods.
Just about every street in downtown Salado is packed with local breweries, cafes, and restaurants. For natives and visitors alike, the choices can be overwhelming. Allow the following list to serve as a road-map through the culinary landmarks of Salado, courtesy of Amy’s Attic Self Storage.
