The Empresario Restaurant: Some of the Best Food in Texas
The moment we saw this little storefront restaurant in Goliad we knew we had found our lunch spot. We entered with high hopes and it exceeded our expectations. It was our most delicious meal, and one of the least expensive, during our recent 10 day vacation in Texas..
Favorite Dish: I loved the lunch special: roast turkey with cornbread dressing and gravy, green beans liberally spiced with chunks of ham, and cranberry sauce. Karen enjoyed the grilled chicken breast with sauteed mushrooms and onions. The meals were expertly prepared, well seasoned, and the portions were so generous we didn't have room for dessert.

The Lost Cajun Restaurant: Wonderful Atmosphere
The Lost Cajun is a unique restaurant. The ambience is wonderful. Don't dress up, because it's a down home, Louisiana swamp, New Orleans back street atmosphere. The food is fabulous, the people friendly. What more can you ask? Great prices? Well, not great maybe, but certainly fair! It is also a great restaurant if you have children with you. They don't have to be dressed up, fancy, nor very quiet. And, Carlea's favorite part, they get free ice cream for dessert!
Favorite Dish: I tried fried alligator here for my first time ever. It was really good! My favorite was their beer batter shrimp. It was fantastic. Their crawfish is spicey without being too hot. Great! As a matter of fact, we never ordered anything at the Lost Cajun that was anything but great. Feel free to try anything on the menu!
