Poodies Hilltop Roadhouse

22308 Hwy. 71 W., Spicewood, 78669, 512/264-0318
A staple on the country circuit since 1997, Poodie’s is one of those Spicewood haunts that’s paid its dues. Booze, burgers, and a little Western swing have cured even the most broken of cowboy hearts – and no one’s talking about retiring that remedy, Willie Nelson included. Named for the Red-Headed Stranger’s late stage manager, Randall “Poodie” Locke, the old bar has come to mean more than just nights of debauchery on the road. It’s a nearby escape, one you can take any time you choose. 300 seats. No kids.
