{Texas Tuesday - The Rustic}

Hey y'all!! Happy Texas Tuesday!!

Masons Mama

What is Texas Tuesday? A chance for you to show off the awesomeness that is TEXAS!! You can blog about anything; restaurants, vacation spots, venues, concerts, your hometown, shops, fashion, sports, etc. The linkup is not limited to Texans, we just ask that the post is about Texas. 

We don't make following any of the hosts a requirement, but we do ask that you include our button and at least post about a Texas related topic. Any links that are not related to the link up will be deleted. (button code is in grab box below the image above)


 Nathan and I had been wanting to visit The Rustic for a while now. It's a restaurant/bar owned by Pat Green. We decided to go for an early birthday dinner for me. 

We got there at 5:45 and the place was insanely packed! We were in the parking lot and out of the 50 or so people we saw there were NO children. {this should have been our first warning} We of course had Mason with us, so I started to worry. Nate went and asked one of the workers and they said yes, children are allowed.  We knew it was a restaurant, with a bar and a lawn section for live music. But, we checked the calendar and thought we were getting there before the music and bar crowd. ha!

We all walked in to the hostess booth to put our name down - just a 2.5 hour wait. And the backyard was first come first serve...so we ventured out there. Still NO kids in sight! I am sure Mason was the only child in that whole place! The backyard was like a circus. So.many.people.

Nathan and I both agreed that we should leave and find somewhere else to go! We felt out of place. One, because we were married, two because we were over the age of 25, and three because we had a child with us! 

We do want to go back sometime. Maybe for a date night! And maybe a little earlier than 5:45. We've heard the skirt steak and the desserts are out of this world!

Have you ever been to The Rustic? What did you think?


  1. That's a little ridiculous for a wait time. I've wanted to check it out but I hear it's a little pricey. Maybe for a one time thing or if there's a good show. Heck - I'm up for trying just about anything once. If you do try it out - make sure you post :)

  2. WOW that is a long wait and especially when you have a little guy with you. I've never been but im not excited after you just said you felt older. I would be ancient next to that crowd.

  3. I agree, that is a crazy wait time. Geez! :( It looks so fun though. Why DO WE NOT HAVE AWESOME PLACES LIKE THIS!?? Boo. ;) We do, but they are all an hour to an hour and half away. Now, where Micah is from there are tons of places.

  4. I heard about this a few weeks ago and it's on my list of places to visit the next time in the area! Since I have absolutely no idea when that will be, I'm hoping the "newness" will have died down by then. I'm not at all surprised that it was that packed!! Who doesn't love Pat Green??

  5. This looks like so much fun, but maybe with a smaller crowd. I'll have to check it out for sure!

  6. EEK! I wanna try this place. Yay for brining this back. I got you the week of the 8th. I already know what I'm gonna link-up

  7. I've never heard of this place. Sounds really neat though! Especially since Pat Green owns it.

  8. What a great feature idea! I will definitely plan to join in soon :)


Thanks for the comments! Hope you are having an amazing day!!
