Floore and Wille Nelson were partners in the original Willie Nelson Music Company. In the March 2001 issue of Texas Monthly, John T. Floore Country Store was listed as one of the "50 Things Every Texan Should Do"
Opened in 1942 by Mr. John T. Floore, himself, John T. Floore Country Store was not a store at all, but a unique Texas Dance Hall and Cafe. Floore's, long renowned for its world famous tamales and homemade bread, offers a full menu of great "Texas Cafe" style food, ice cold beer and and truly unique "Texccentric" atmosphere.
This place is awesome, but no fried pickles on the concert menu? C'mon man that is what I wanted most. We've been out for a few free shows and then we went out for Blackberry Smoke the other night. Hell yeah, thanks for getting Blackberry down to south Texas. There was a lot of people at the show but there was still plenty of room. Great venue, great stage, and the sound was on point. Fun place to go.
Great concert. Food was okay, not ,"wow." Was clearly all pre made, easy assemble, nothing cooked fresh. No fries, no nachos, no fried pickles, which was disappointing, but service was excellent. Will definitely return for future concerts.
Wanted to donate 20$ won't let us in for paying 2 adults whole we have a 3 ur old kinda wrong babies were effected too
Always have a fun time here. Indoor or outdoor shows, it's a great size to really enjoy yourself.
Historic/Quant place. Great tamales and chili. So full of life and if those walls could talk.
