“Texas' definitive dance hall”

A true Texas honky tonk! The Broken Spoke is Texas' most definitive dance hall. It's has a musical history that dates back to Bob Wills and The Texas Playboys. If you're ever in Austin, stop by for some traditional country music by some "real" country musicians. Plus, the best chicken fried steak in all of Texas! As part of the celebration of their 25th anniversary which was 10 years ago, the Spoke set aside a room for memorabilia called "The Tourist Trap Room" with photos, hats and other items related to Country music. The Broken Spoke is a Texas treasure and an Austin tradtion appreciated around the world.
