At the heart of many a small Texas town is a general store, of sorts; a place “…where everybody knows your name, and they’re always glad you came…” The town of Troy, Texas, is lucky to have just such a place, but although its exterior speaks of an older era, it was actually established in 1998! Does that defer from its small-town charm? Not in the least. In fact, it’s practically the “Cheers” of central Texas.

Looking like something out of “Petticoat Junction,” the Troy General Store services the local population, which is just shy of 2,000. However, don’t let the size of the town or the store fool you. Plenty of fresh produce is readily available for sale, which is locally grown, in fact it’s grown in the backyard of this very establishment! Picnic-style tables furnish the exterior and interior, which is also adorned with state memorabilia, creating a quaint and comfortable feeling in which to eat and catch up with a friend. The Troy General Store serves up what’s rumored to be some of the best barbecue in the state of Texas, despite the long haul to get to it. The road time is nothing when you consider the meal that awaits you there, including mouth-watering brisket, pulled pork, and sausage, not to mention the delicious sides that complement it.

Not only that, but you can also find the perfect dessert to finish off your meal, or to take home and enjoy with a glass of sweet tea. For those with a bit of a sweet tooth, the Troy General Store has a considerable selection that won’t disappoint. From pastries to pies and some delicious Blue Bell ice cream to go on the side, one can literally have their cake and eat it too – with a hot coffee, no less!
