Countryside Honky Tonk

Lone Star BBQ & Mercantile, Santee, SC  
I was at Lake Marion with friends this past long weekend and stopped at the Lone Star BBQ & Mercantile for a plate of BBQ. We were delighted to see that the 14th Annual Blue Grass Honky Tonk festival was in full swing. Three kind ladies were going in to get their dinner and offered us the loan of their chairs so we settled down in comfort to listen to the music. It was a treat. According to their web site they have live music every Saturday night. 

I always roam the buildings when I am there, looking at the old pictures and collection of memorabilia they have on the shelves and visit the wee cabin in behind the restaurant buildings.  


  1. Is that FRUIT? On a BARBECUE plate? Girl, where were you raised anyway? India?

  2. Joan - would you mind posting that photo of the old typewriters again, in its original file size? I would love to use that as my screen saver! It's FABULOUS! (Or you could just email it to me at wallowithnail@gmail.com - so as not to clog up your blog.) Thanks!!

  3. I like the eclectic feel of the place!

  4. Catalyst made me laugh out loud. :)
