Loved this place to start our day trip in bandera. We wanted to explore trip advisory and decided to stop at the chicken coop. Not only can to get a beer but you can sit in or outside in the patio and smoke.

Every time we come to Bandera we go tot he Chickin Coop. The food is really good, and we are not much on beer so the only place we found to get a mix drink. Atmosphere is ideal.
