Anthonie’s Grill and Cafe – Simonton TX

February 6, 2021 — February 12, 2021
Posted By:

Far away from the traffic in the city, Anthonie’s is a relaxed, rustic restaurant located in the community of Simonton, Texas. It’s about a 20 minute drive from Houston Executive Airport KTME. However, I’m going to contact the owner to see if we can land in the open pasture adjoining the restaurant. Anyway, we’ll plan to depart T74 – Taylor at 10:00 AM – SAT – FEB 6 to arrive at the restaurant around 1:00 for lunch.

Dinner at Leona General Store – Leona TX

May 8, 2021 — May 14, 2021

Leona General Store looks like a scene out of a 1950’s small town movie. On the outside, it still has the look of a mom & pop grocery. On the inside, they’re serving up mesquite grilled ribeyes to hungry patrons from as far away as Houston and Dallas. The nearest airport is Madisonville – 51R.  We’ll plan to depart T74 – Taylor at 3:00 PM on SAT – MAY 8 for the 80 mile flight.
