A Tech Oasis on the rolling plains of forgotten Texas


The Rock Inn in Seymour has been slinging hash since 1932. Seymour is where SH114 from DFW, US 82 / 277 from Wichita Falls merge to head west to Lubbock. Long before I-20, this was the preferred rout to Lubbock from the DFW area. The owner is a Tech grad from sometime in the middle of the last century so the decor is all red and black. If you want to know what a roadside dinner was like when the Joads were fleeing the dust bowl, this is the place. This is a must stop for any Tech fan.

The sign to look for.

Alas it's time to bit farewell to the Rock Inn.
