If you’re anything like us, food is one of the most important things when you’re on vacation (or anytime really)! Where to get it, what the choices are, and what cooking facilities are available – all very good information to have. So we wanted to lay out all the food options for guests at The Range.
This information is especially important now while COVID-19 restrictions are in place. We will update this post as changes occur to The Range’s food offerings and the local businesses. If you have a booking we will update you directly, otherwise check back here for updates.
When You Feel Like a Snack or a Meal at The Range
Our restaurant and bar are now up and running! We offer snacks and light meals from our restaurant – order online and we’ll deliver to your site. And we are happy to introduce Chef Lucy’s special Saturday night dinners! Cooking over our custom 7-foot fire pit grill with real mesquite hardwood, Chef Lucy has created delicious meals of Wagyu steak, grilled chicken, vegetarian medley and two kids options. These meals are pre-ordered and served in the restaurant in our open-air barn every Saturday night.
At our custom converted 1959 Airstream bar, we have a selection of hand picked wines, Texas beers, Texas liquors, cocktails and other beverages. These drinks are also available for purchase online and delivery to your site.
When You Want to Cook
If you love whipping up meals, we offer a microwave and a charcoal Weber grill in every trailer. There are no working stoves or ovens inside the trailers. (For a detailed list of the kitchen supplies in our trailers, check out this blog post.)
We don’t provide charcoal grills at our open sites, due to feedback that most trailer owners prefer to use their own – but if you’re at an open site and need a grill, let us know!
We have mini refrigerators in every trailer, so you can bring your own food or you can purchase food items from local grocery stores. For ease and to guarantee you find what you want, we recommend bringing groceries with you. Four minutes away, the Bristol General Store sells essentials and practices social distancing and safety measures. Additionally the local HEB store is less than 20 minutes away and offers curbside pickup and Shipt delivery. (Please note: curbside and Shipt require advance booking.)
When You Want to Eat Out On The Town
Plenty of local businesses offer takeaway food and meals, and some offer outdoor dining.
The Bristol General Store is a hidden gem – or maybe not so hidden given the amount of media attention its sushi has received! Stop in for what many people have called the best sushi they’ve ever eaten, and very good fried rice too. Wildflower Cafe has excellent lunch options, and The Range owner Sarah says their Saturday brunch is absolutely delicious. Zagalas has excellent pizza and pasta. The Kolache Depot Bakery makes delicious kolaches and has a drive through! El Mexicano Grille offers solid Mexican food – the enchiladas are a personal favorite.
There are also many drive through / fast food options available not too far away, including Chick-Fil-A and Buc-ee’s.
There is no shortage of delicious options at and around The Range! Stay tuned for more information as The Range’s restaurant expands.
