Comfort, Texas: The Cartoon Saloon

The Cartoon Saloon

This place is amazing. When we stopped, three of the guys that created it were just sitting around, drinking beers. Friendliest people. They took pictures of us. There is a pen to sign the inside of the building. If you BYOB, you can sign the can (best to bring marker -- all they had were pens) and leave it on a shelf in bar. They were very proud that you wouldn't find anything else like it in world.

You should BYOB, but they do have some available. We had the place to ourselves on a Wednesday around lunch. You could tell people had been there recently. Would love to come back with a cooler and no kids.

The Cartoon Saloon

The Cartoon Saloon is not a bar, but a roadside attraction for folks to stop at and get a glimpse of an Old School saloon and great photo op. And it's free. I don't know that there is another place quite like it.

[JP Rankin, 01/29/2019]

Despite its weathered Wild West appearance, the Cartoon Saloon was built in 2018.
