Country Tavern BBQ, Kilgore, Texas

My dad and I enjoy traveling the backroads of Texas to find great BBQ. We were not disappointed in the food at Country Tavern BBQ a few weeks ago! -  Roger and Ivy Lee Sloan opened the original Country Tavern Café beside their liquor store during the Great East Texas Oil Boom in 1939. Then and now, the property sits near several honky-tonks and liquor stores clustered at the Gregg County line, just across from “dry” Smith County. Celebrities Larry Hagman, Robert Duvall, Sandy Duncan, and George Bush have all feasted there.
