“infamous dive-bar in Texas”

Looking for a place to get away from the big city hustle and bustle? then pull up a chair in the middle of nowhere Texas at the Devil's Backbone Tavern. They serve food and beer, and the staff have some serious stories to share if you can finagle it out of them... just ask about Ms. Virgy. Cash-only.

I'd dreamed of coming here ever since hearing the Todd Snider song, Ballad of Devil's Backbone Tavern, and it did not disappoint! A real Texas bar, through and through. Meet some locals and have a nice cold beer. Everything about this place is just right for a hole-in-the-wall Texas tavern.

This tavern is considered a local Texas legend, that comes complete with plenty of ghost stories.

Stop here every time I'm in the area. Friendly people who love to tell you about the ghost in the building.
