I usually take time every weekend to do some traveling around Texas, searching and collecting Historical Markers. So far, I spend a lot of time in and around the cities of San Antonio, Houston and Conroe. If you look at a Texas map that’s a pretty good area to cover and a bunch of markers to collect. I have decided to add my travel stops in my blog so I hope you enjoy.
First stop Dobbin Saloon and Grill. Located at 26333 Old Hwy 105 west in Montgomery Texas.
I must admit, the weekends I am in Conroe, this is my little hangout. When you walk in, your likely to come across some of the locals of Dobbin just hanging out drinking a cold one but please don’t let that stop you from visiting, these people are some of the friendliest people around.
Dobbin even has entertainment worth checking out.
One of the upcoming artist is Jason Cassidy which is scheduled for August 5th. I’ll be there!
Fridays is also a winner with Mere and Karaoke. So whether you have great singing talent or just like singing in the shower, come be a Star at Dobbin Saloon! And of course, I have to mention the food! The nachos are to die for. (My mouth is watering! They’re my personal favorite. lol) and if your really hungry you wont be disappointed with Dobbins Burgers. Dobbin Saloon and Grill has a pretty good variety of food and drinks, so whether your hungry or thirsty, they got you covered.
During my visit, I immediately noticed all the yellow shirts. Dobbin Saloon was hosting a benefit for one of the locals, “Bull” who had passed. There was a silent auction, food, and of course the support from the community.
So who was “Bull”? I spoke with Mrs. Doyle and she had these kind words to say:
Frank “Bull” Doyle
March 1, 1963 – May 29, 2017
Bull was the guy that never met a stranger. He had a heart of Gold. He would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. Bull was always the life of the party. He was a loving husband, father and grandfather. Simply put, “To Know Him, Was To Love Him”. The Dobbin Saloon was his favorite hangout spot after a long ride on his motorcycle. Bull is truly missed by each person that knew him.
So if you are in the area take the time to visit Dobbin Saloon and Grill. Say hi to Angie while you’re there and if you hear the train go by, you gotta holler “TRAIN BEER”
