You never know where you might find buried treasure, though if you see Matthew McConaughey digging, be prepared to chloroform him as soon as his magic fingers touch Confederate and/or Spanish gold! For an unlikely place to find the meatiest of bounties, hit Wholly Cow.
Operated out of a tiny Star-Grill Food Mart by a trained opera singer from New Braunfels who helped start up San Antonio's Rudy's BBQ, Wholly pushes patties of grass-fed beef sourced directly from his family's farm in Fredericksburg, a small town that's nonetheless big enough to hold every man who actually asks to be called "Frederick". Served for takeout and at four spotted tables, the hormone-free Angus (abetted by equally organic seasonal produce) comes in the form of Pure Singles, Heavenly Doubles, or Mini Cherubs (sliders), with add-ons like bacon, candied jalapenos, roasted red peppers, or chili; other beefwiches include the thin-sliced Wholly Cheesesteak Batman and the Almighty Reuben, also a movie in which Morgan Freeman finally gives Old Testament powers to a Jew. Beyond bovine, there're squawkers like the Hellfire Cajun Chicken Salad and the pesto'd Grilled Chicken in Paradise, plus "Where's the Beef" numbers like the grilled four-cheese Golden Gates and the portobello-bunned grilled veggie number "Bella Bella Bella" -- which, thanks to past incidents with Italian men, will cause you to reflexively tell the menu, "Get your hand off my ass".
Although the convenience store currently just carries typical delicious-only-after-smoking-things fare, the owner is looking to transform it into more of an organic market, meaning a visit could yield so much treasure that, as with Sahara, you might be forced to ask Steve Zahn to help you carry it.
