If you take the time to mosey down Apache Trail (SR 88) on your way to Canyon Lake, you will pass Filly’s Roadhouse. It isn’t the biggest place around nor is it the fanciest but it sure is a place to kick back and enjoy some fun in the sun. The patio which is tucked behind the restaurant is everyone’s favorite spot to kick back and enjoy an afternoon of eating, drinking and dancing sprinkled with lots of laughter and good times. Bring your family, bring your friends and get ready to let your hair down. This is country at its finest!
