OK, try to pronounce that!! On our bike trip, we headed south to Lott and then were planning to go to Temple to eat breakfast. I have heard of Zabcikville for years but never been there. The town is renowned for a large, locally owned meat market. There are only two building there, one a deserted gas station and the other is the meat market/restaurant. Jack Zabcik founded the town with other Czech families and the 1990 census reported less than 40 people call Zabcikville home. But I can tell you one thing, when we got to the meat market/restaurant around 9:15AM, there were at least 20 people waiting in line!!

I have never seen to many types of sausage. Supposedly there are 14 varieties, not to mention the homemade bread and kolaches, peppered bacons, steaks, and about anything you could want that comes from a cow or hog. It took us a while to decide what we wanted plus standing in line.
I LOVE sausage so it was very hard to make a choice. We finally decided on jalapeno sausage for the grill, thick sliced peppered bacon, garlic bacon, dried sausage, and the small dried sausage sticks like you can get at gas stations except these were much cheaper!!
We didn't get any of the cheese but it looked yummy!!
I had to use all my willpower not to get one of these. But I knew we were heading on to get breakfast. Yum!!Greg had to stand in line a while to pay for the goods but it was totally worth it. He opened the package of dried beef sticks before we got back on the motorcycle.
Greg says we will be making trips to Zabcikville on a regular basis.......

I work in Temple several times during a year and I always stop at Green's Store to get kolaches to bring home to the kids in B/CS. It is an excellent store. The restaurant is very good as well.

Maybe we should have eaten at Green's while we were there. We talked about it but most of the people were in the market, buying sausage and such.
