Texas Monthly Praises Cat Spring Restaurant

Texas Monthly Praises Carol's

Texas Monthly Praises Carol's

Texas Monthly magazine was created in 1972 by Michael R. Levy, a young man from Dallas who was “convinced that my state was ready for a really first class magazine that will appeal directly to the sophisticated, cosmopolitan folks that Texans have become.” (Texas Monthly, Feb. 1973). Since then, the magazine has grown and developed with the times, and can today be found online at According to Texas Archival Resources Online, “the magazine began to define how Texas was emerging as a contemporary urban state while still clinging to its rural mythic past.”

It is no surprise that  Texas Monthly discovered fine dining in Cat Spring Texas. According to the magazine, if “hunger strikes while you’re traveling between Austin and Houston, detour a short distance and check out Carol Davis’ little oasis in a building that looks like a lodge. Here chef Doug Atkinson, who once cooked for Ruggles’ restaurants in Houston, is turning out dishes that far exceed the road-food norm. Lunch runs to sandwiches, burgers, and salads like grilled salmon with balsamic vinaigrette. Dinners include excellent bison fillet with port wine sauce and a fine, juicy pork chop with homemade apple butter.”

Proof enough that Carol’s is worth a detour while out and about in the Texas countryside. Consider extending your meal with a stay at Carol’s romantic guest ranch.
