The Broken Spoke is Texas' most definitive dance hall and they serve up Texas' best honky-tonk. There is a big dance floor for two-stepping while listening to a Texas legend. Take a self-guided tour of the small museum dubbed "the Tourist Trap," where you'll find country music curios like Bob Wills' hat and Johnny Bush's boots, plus photos of legends onstage at the Spoke such as Willie Nelson and George Strait. It might also be surprising to discover that the food here is pretty good, too. The barbecue and chicken fried steak both get rave reviews from customers, for good downhome Texas style cooking. And if you're not sure of your dance moves, check out times for two-step and swing lessons, held every week.
