Over the years many people have asked me about the building that we occupy in downtown Taylor. We currently own 9 tenths of a city block. Our building is a former Safeway Food Store that was built in the 1920's. After Safeway built another foodstore on Vance street, the building became a warehouse for Taylor Bedding Company. Part of the building was also used as a plumbing warehouse. My father purchased the building in 1971 after selling the famous L&M cafe in Georgetown. He combined all of his bar-b-q "joints" into one large operation. After almost 1 year of remodeling, we opened the restaurant and catering complex in 1972. This is well built building that I hope will continue to serve our faithful customers for a long time.

This week I received my official "orders" for the trip to Bosnia in July. I am thrilled and a little scared about the chance to serve an event located in a war zone. Our 1,500 Texas Army National Guard members are doing a fine job at Eagle Base. I look forward to seeing them and telling them we are all grateful for their devotion and service. My Grandmother Francis Mikeska was a 4 star mother during World War II. She had 4-gold stars located on the exterior of the Mikeska farmhouse. My uncles Mike, Louis, Jerry and my father Rudy all served in World War II. My younger uncles Maurice and Clem served overseas during the Korean War. My family believes in service to their country. I hope that this event will show my family's continued support of service to our country. I will keep you informed.
