Shady Grove

Walking under a melt of sunlight to a shady waterin' hole for a chicken-fried steak and ranch salad … we'd say that's about as Texas as it gets. Under the spreading pecan trees, the appropriately named Shady Grove walks the walk – or more precisely, chills the chill (Shady Thang margarita? Yes, please) – and has been as rock-steady on the beloved Barton Springs strip as the boulders which decorate her walls.
