Taylor Cafe – Taylor, TX – Photos

I visited The Taylor Cafe yesterday to get a chance to try some brisket and sausage. The seat next to Vencil Mares was available so I got a chance to talk to him for about a half an hour while I ate. I’ll be writing up a review as well as notes on my conversation, but wanted to get you some photos.

  1. Just curious if good ol’ Vencil still discriminates against African-Americans? The first (and last) time I was at that place there was more cigarette smoke than wood smoke.

  2. Vencil ain’t no racist, I’ve rubbed elbows with plenty Black folks in his joint. He treats everybody the same. That smell of cigarettes? That’s the smell of freedom son. Pic of the octogenarian pit boss
