Thanksgiving Dining in Bastrop County - 2013
'Tis the season for giving thanks. And turkey. And stuffing. And cranberry sauce. And pie. OK, now I'm hungry! If you don't feel like cooking that turkey dinner yourself, there are several places in Bastrop County that will gladly serve you a delicious home-cooked meal...
Comfort Café ($)
Comfort Café is located at 111 NW 1st Street in downtown Smithville. They will be offering a buffet on Thanksgiving Day from 11am-3pm with turkey and all the trimmings. The best part—it's donation only! That means you pay only what you can, and if you can't afford to pay anything at all, that's ok, too. They simply ask that you trade a little service work for your meal. All proceeds from the café go to help support SerenityStar Recovery Center.
Maxine's on Main ($$)
Maxine's on Main is located at 905 Main Street in downtown Bastrop and will be open on Thanksgiving Day from 11am-3pm for a home-cooked, all-you-can-eat buffet. The buffet is $24.95/adult and $15/child under 12. (Maxine's Café in Elgin will be closed on Thanksgiving Day.)
