Cattle Drive
A Classy Texas Hangout for Chili and Beer

The rumors: swirling.

The anticipation: intense.

And the reveal: so close.

Yes, your Sexy John McEnroe Halloween costume is gonna be amazing.

Oh, and hey look, there’s this new place from Stephan Pyles, too.

Say hello to Stampede 66, a Texas landscape full of cold beers, tacos and comforting bowls of chili, opening Thursday at the Park Seventeen building on McKinney Avenue.

And here’s what it is: a sprawling room filled with wood-paneled walls, leather booths and Texas-themed decor. Stuff like suspended longhorn horns, wire-frame horses and a blue sky painted on the ceiling. But more importantly: a kitchen churning out tacos, tamales and smoked chicken and dumplings, plus a bar slinging all the requisite local beers that go nicely with such things.

So go ahead, start at the bar. That’s your weeknight command center for barbacoa tacos and margaritas. But should you require a more conventional dinner, work your way to a high-backed booth—one of the ones made of snakeskin is a logical choice. (Snakeskin: essential on any date.)

Of course, that’s assuming you’re sitting inside. Because there’s also a screened-in porch with a fire pit. And it’s so seldom you get to drink around an indoor fire these days.

HR is such a buzzkill.
