Texas is teeming with unique sites and locations to visit. One which definitely stands out from the crowd, and where you can get a truly great meal, is Jerry Mikeska’s Bar-B-Q, located in Columbus, Texas. Although it maintains a modest outward appearance, its interior pays homage to the great sport of hunting that we Texans take great pride in enjoying.

Easily accessible from I-10, Jerry Mikeska’s Bar-B-Q simply appears to be (from its exterior) a standard place to get a bite to eat. However, one look inside the door, and you’ll see why it’s considered the unique spot that it is. Hundreds of taxidermized animal heads can be seen mounted on its walls! Not only are the walls mounted with this great menagerie, but the lighting is also suitably decked out.
