A Texas Legend is Born
Local brothers Charlie and Dell Wunsche opened originally as a hotel, brothel, and saloon built for railroad workers and travelers. It was built from lumber milled from the Wunsche Family Mill. The business thrived until Prohibition and was sold in 1949 and turned into a café. To this day the brothers, Charlie & Dell, are still pretty famous for being the ghosts that haunt the old saloon.
Dell and Charlie Wunsche would be happy to see so many smiling guests enjoying great food, cold beer (ok, it was warm beer back then) and the old fashioned Texas hospitality they started more than a century ago. Welcome to a legendary Texas Cafe – we’re real glad you’re here!
A Texas Tale - The Last Drop of Whiskey!
It was 1919, the night before Prohibition would make consumption of alcohol illegal! Folks had traveled to Spring from miles around to help drink the bottles dry and dance the night away. The next morning, the bleary-eyed Wunsche brothers stirred with a proprietary urge to inspect the inventory. Was there any whiskey left?
“A ha! Just a few drops here, and a few drops there – let’s leave none to waste” said Dell. “Here’s to you my dear ‘ol brother” answered Charlie, and he poured the leftover whiskey in Aunt Pearl’s cake! When the first wobbly customer arose and asked: “what’s a feller to eat?”, the two Wunsche brothers looked at each other, grinned, and offered their very first slice of Chocolate Whiskey Cake – and that is how this Texas legend was born.
