Easily spotted thanks to the giant silver armadillo leering at the passing traffic on Kirby Drive, Armadillo Palace is part of the Goode Company cluster of eat-and-drinkerys just south of Highway 59. Patrons can feast on the family's legendary barbecue and sip whiskey while taking in the various frontier décor lining the interior. Live music of the honky-tonk and Red Dirt variety sounds forth from the corner stage Wednesday through Saturday, and there's even a bit of room for dancing. (A bit.) Folks needing a little liquid courage before they take a spin need look no further than the large bar anchoring the center of the room.
