Consumers Guide to Delectable Eats in Kingsland


If you’re new to the area or are just stopping for a short visit or vacation, we’re excited that you’ve come to Kingsland! You’ve gotta eat at some point - what will it be today? Maybe a morning cup o’ Joe and some good ol’ Texas barbeque for lunch will suit you well. If you’re looking for somewhere to get a nice bite to eat, check out these delicious and local eats!

Grand Central Cafe

Located on the Antler’s Inn grounds in Kingsland, Grand Central Cafe was started by two like-minded individuals (Rick Gregory and Drew Gerencer) who wanted tourists to be able to enjoy a delicious breakfast and lunch without spending an arm and a leg. While they used to only be open for breakfast and lunch, they were getting high demand requests to stay open for dinner. If that doesn’t tell you how delicious their food is, I don’t know what will!

The cafe is closed Monday and Tuesday, but open Wednesday-Sunday from 8am - 2pm and Wednesday-Saturday 5pm - 9pm.

Spyke’s Bar-B-Que

You can never go wrong with getting (at least a pound of) brisket each time you walk into Spyke’s Bar-B-Que, but that’s not the only thing on their menu! You can stuff your belly to the brim on turkey, sausage, chicken, and ribs galore. If you’re looking for some true, award-winning, Texas barbeque, you’re going to the right place.

Spyke’s Bar-B-Que is closed Sunday and Monday, but open Tuesday-Thursday 11am - 3pm and Friday-Saturday 11am - 7pm.

Kingsland Coffee Company

“We serve the best!” is their motto, and they’re aren’t too far off! Some would say that Kingsland Coffee Company serves the best of the best. Owned and operated by the same individuals who opened Grand Central Cafe, Rick Gregory and Drew Gerencer, Kingsland Coffee Company has now moved and opened their new location at The Antler’s Inn.

Kingsland Coffee Company is open Monday-Saturday 7am - 4pm and Sunday 7am - 12pm.

El Bracero Mexican Restaurant

Ask any local around here for some good, authentic, Mexican cuisine and they’ll point in the direction of El Bracero. They begin serving breakfast tacos and burritos each morning at 6am (except Sundays when they begin at 7am), where their staff is bound to make you feel right at home.

El Bracero is open Monday-Saturday 6am - 9pm and Sunday 7am - 9pm.
