I stopped a week or so ago after a day of riding in the Hill Country. I had ridden past it the first time and thought this looks like an interesting place to have dinner. Right on the square in small town Americana. I parked in front and went in for what I hoped would be a great meal. Small town restaurants are a favorite of mine. This visit was a disappointment. I was there in the early evening and there were only a few people in the place so I cannot blame it on the crowds. Service was fair at best. The food and coffee were not fresh. The sandwich was what I expect from a cheap burger stand. The ingredients did not appear to be the best of anything. The presentation of the food should have been seen by the server before it made it to the table. I would stop again only to see if this visit was an anomaly or the norm. My first impression left me nothing to applaud them for. I hope it was a freak occurrence so please stop and see for yourself. My visit was not good. I'm hopeful for yours.

We stopped in to get ice cream and had to wait for 20 minutes to even place an order. The town is so small there just aren't enough places to choose from.

For a quick salad or sandwich or the daily special and a delicious dessert, go to the Square Plate in Mason on the Square. Yes, the plates are square and the saucers, too, if you get coffee. My favorite is the goat cheese/pesto sandwich and the German potato salad is the best ever!!! A great dining experience and it is reasonably priced! Try the bread pudding, the chocolate chip cookies, the brownie with ice cream, the apple caramel pie....and on and on....

Cooper's Original Pit Bar-B-Q was established in 1953 by the late George Cooper. Duard Dockal worked for Mr. Cooper for seven years prior to purchasing this business in 1983. In April 2014, Lindell L. & Pam Estes became the third owners of this establishment. The same recipes and cooking styles from years ago are still being used. We specialize in bar-b-q that is grilled in a pit over mesquite coals. Orders are placed from the pit as well and we have an array of meats to choose from: brisket, chicken, pork loin, Turkey breast, pork chops, ribs, sausage, and goat. Our sides are made in house and from scratch which would include beans (that are free with a meat order), cole slaw, and potato salad. Our spicy rub, tangy vinegar based pit sauce, and thick red sauce are homemade as well. For those dining in, you can choose from our air-conditioned dining room or outdoor pavilion area.
Coopers has a big reputation among Texas barbecue and it absolutely lives up to it. The brisket and jalapeno sausage are excellent. The ribs, goat and prime rib are good. Jalapeno chicken popper is okay, but I expected more pop. The beans and potato salad are good, and it's not outrageously priced. Plus, we saw a lot of people from town we saw out and about the night before so it's not just tourists eating here.

Tried this cool little Pizza-sandwich pub. Nice little pizzas and salads you design yourself. Very reasonably priced
Only problem server was gathering ingredients without sanitary gloves. 2nd server did have gloves on
You went to bar for your drinks, nice selection of beers, not so with wines. Should be serving Texas Wines
Would stop again if in area

My wife Catherine and I opened up a small ice cream shop in Mason,TX. It's called "Grunts Frozen Yogurt ",as I am a 20 yr enlisted Marine. Our staff are all "Young Life" volunteers here in Mason. Our shop is about 700 sqft but we carry a lot of product. We sell frozen yogurt, fresh ice cream, floats,shakes, Italian soda,coffees, hotdogs and many more items. Our coffee sales help send local kids to young life summer camps. Our shop is all about our local veterans, every thing in it educates every customer about our veterans history. All branches of service are honored. We have over 100 of our veterans photos hanging up on our walls. The little kids as well as our older citizens all enjoy coming in. We have a bell for all veterans to ring when they come in and all WWII veterans or spouses of a deceased WWII veteran eats on the house. We have "a currently serving photo board "that folks can hang up pictures of their family members on. We also have a display for our fallen heros.
We were headed home after a Thanksgiving visit - stopped in Mason, Texas. We just had to go to Grunts - named after US Marines- which the owner was one - Thank you for your service! The yogurt machine needed a part and was down...MoreThank you for being our first customer to review our business on Tripadvisor! We appreciate you business and thank you for your patience with our yogurt machine. We look forward to seeing you again, and yes there is plenty to see in Mason TX.

Nice clean Mexican place. Small and locally owned. The portions were good. Food was almost ok. My Monterey chicken tasted liket was bought frozen and microwaved. I honestly dont know why my husband ordered country fried steak and gravy at someplace named Nachos. But he said it wasn't good. I wanted to say what did you expect but we have a long drive ahead of us and I don't want to be trapped in a car woth a grumpy man.

The menu changes with added specials. The Posole and the Tortilla Soup are two of my favorites this winter. I also LOVE their Huevos Rancheros for breakfast. I substitute Nopalitos for the potatoes. Yum!
The owners are very friendly and welcoming and accommodate dietary restrictions as they can. The place is clean and bright.
