Sausage Fest: Vincek's Smokehouse
The East Bernard Kolache-Klobase Festival is only once a year, but Vincek’s Smokehouse (Texas 60 at U.S. 90A, 979-335-7921) offers up kolaches, homemade bread, fresh meats and smoked jerky and sausages all the time, except for Mondays, when the joint is closed.
I picked up a pound of thick-sliced, heavily smoked bacon for $4 (but more on that a little later). Vincek's has barbecue too, and it is excellent. -- Jay Francis
