Top 10 Oldest Restaurants In Texas – My Bucket List Grows
The biggest problem with making Bucket Lists is my list keeps getting longer the older I get. If God allows me to live out most of my list, I will be here a long, long time. Fingers crossed.
Today we go in search of the 10 oldest restaurants in the Great State of Texas. These are not listed by which eateries are the best, I have no way of knowing that yet. At this point, there are too many that I haven't been to. So, we will have to start literally at the beginning and see where this list takes us. I have been to a few of these though which made me glad I didn't grow up completely sheltered.
Before we get to the Texas list let's check out a couple of other intriguing places, the first being...
The Oldest Restaurant On Earth!
We have to go to Salzburg, Austria to find the oldest restaurant on the planet, it's called St Peter Stiftskeller and is located inside the walls of St Peter's Abby. Yes, you read that right, 803 AD, and you thought Mcdonald's served a lot of people. According to Oldest.org, they serve traditional Austrian cuisine, and the average meal costs around $70.
Ok, that is most impressive, now let's check out...
The Oldest Restaurant In America:
The Wayside Inn: Located in Sudbury, Massachusetts, the Wayside Inn has been in continuous business since 1702, officially granted its first "Inn Keeper" license in 1716. If it's 2022 when you're reading this that would be 320 years, 74 years before we became a country. There is one place that claims to be older but it hasn't been in continuous operation all this time.
Now, it's time for the countdown to begin...
