While in TX be sure to "Czech out" some of the local kolache places.  I'm not a huge fan of the mass-production kolache shops, but here is a article with some good suggestions:

We recently had a expatriate couple from Texas open a kolache bakery/ice cream shop in town and I'm glad to say they are doing a booming business, and rightfully so:



TT, I'm 1/2 Chech, that will fit right in. If there are that many Chech's in one place there could 
be some good Chech restaurants around.......thxs for the for the article..........Bill

Bill, on your way through Johnson City be sure to stop at Whittington's Beef Jerky store. Some of the best I've ever had. They also sell a lot of home made jams and stuff.

 
brisketboy, if all the stars and planets line up in a row, I would like to meet up and break bread.

The Keys are back in the picture, I plan on 6 weeks of fishing. I'm taking Mollie with me as far as Phoenix, she will fly back to Washington State. I'll travel on through AZ, NM, I plan a day or two in the Lockhart area. Then I'm stumped ????????? It's about 500 miles to NOLA from Lockhart, Tx, are some of the cities before NOLA a good idea for eats. Cities like Beaumont, Lake Charles, Lafayette Or Baton Rouge.....I will be in this area the first week of January...........Thxs Bill

Pnwchef, I'm in San Marcos which is about 20 miles from Lockhart. If we can work it out I'd be happy to meet up with you in Lockhart for a meal or a day. Because I have some physical problems, I am unable to drive in Austin or San Antonio but Lockhart is fine. You can choose the place, I am not all that familiar with the restaurants there. I assume you will be after barbeque. I really don't think San Marcos has any really notable bbq but you're welcome to check.

I would stop for a "snack at the M &S Grocery, 2720 Louisiana Avenue, Lafayette, LA. The boudin was fresh made, crawfish étouffée hand pies ambrosial, the pork pies are wonderful. and the andouille.......mmmmmmmm...! They have four tables to sit down at and enjoy the hot items from the deli counter. I GARONTEE IT!

Ed, the Boudin trail looks like fun. I'll be around here the first week of Jan, it s/b a good time. These would be some great "off the beaten path" stops. 
 
mlm: I have some friends in San Antonio, Tx, I'll have to see what their plans are. I'll get in touch when it gets closer..........

Depending on how far off the road you want to go, I also suggest making a trip to big Daddy's Grill in Fairhope, AL. I had food like this:

 

 

The second photo gives you some idea of the soft shell crabs and the whole sandwich as compared to the keys and iced tea.
Soft shell crabs and crawfish tail po'boy, onion rings and a side of fried okra. If that ain't good eats I don't know what is!
 
It's a great location, right on the fish River. Weekends they have live music. You'd like it!

If you stop in Fairhope, look for the local brew made by an old friend, Dan Murphy, at Fairhope Brewing Co. They have their own taproom (no food served there) and their craft beers are also served at other local pubs and restaurants — including Big Daddy's!
