What a great place. The Longhorn Bar was just perfect for a place like Bandera. Proper country people drinking and have a goof time.
Behind the bar, Brooke was brilliant, fun and a great spirit. My partner and I went in three nights in a row, alternating driving responsibilities so both got to have a few drinks there. The atmosphere was great and all the people (bar one) to whom I chatted were friendly and personable.
On my night drinking I perhaps had a few too many but no problem. The drinks were strong and well priced.
The Longhorn is owned by the brother of Clint Black, a well known Country singer and the bands there were very good. I learnt to two step at the Longhorn and had a great time on the dance floor. It was good to see so many people of all ages dancing and enjoying themselves. My better half loved dancing with me there and it added to the great time.
Two not so great points was that the smoke became a bit too much for me on a Friday night and I had to step outside to get some fresh air.
The other was the one guy that was not so friendly but he was a jerk and later I saw him getting into a fight in the men's restroom. He was soon taken outside without much incident.
Overall, a great place and I want to go back now!
