Last night, my wife Lynda and I had the pleasure of dining at the Wooden Spoon Restaurant and Deli owned and operated by Duane and Karol Allen of Calvert, Texas. The Allen's and friends like DeLena DeLuna did an enormous amount of work on the building. Together, they did a great job of transforming a 140 year old building into one of the most spectacular eating establishments I have ever visited.

Our waitress was charming and we had a steady stream of delightful Calvert citizens coming to dine.

I had the chicken fried steak special and Lynda had the fried catfish... I know many restaurants in Texas claim to have the best chicken fried steak in Texas but that's because they've never tasted the steak and catfish cooked by Karol Allen at the Wooden Spoon!!

Karol describes the decor of the 1868 Grocery Store as "Antique Abstract". She has done an amazing job...everything is magnificant from the transformed ceilings, walls and floors to the beautifully done kitchen, and bathrooms.

Her friend Gracia, a talented author and painter who owns the Cajun shop down the street and sometimes doubles as a waitress at the Spoon, painted the tabletops, outdoor signs and the counter area.

You just have to drive down and see this place and sample that great food for yourself.


The Wooden Spoon is located at 726 Main street in Calvert...Just look for the large "Eat" sign out front

or give them a call at:
(979) 364-2380

They're open 7 days a week (11:00AM to 9:00 PM Monday-Saturday and on 11:00 to 6 PM on Sundays). Look for new breakfast hours to be posted soon.

We will bring you more details about the Wooden Spoon shortly but trust me, it is a dining and entertainment experience worth your drive even if you're coming from Houston or Dallas!!!

Enjoy the fantastic decor created by Karol and friend DeLena (who operates DeLena's Deli and Ice Cream Fountain down the street)into a huge 50's style dining area and have a seat at one of the country tables...there's the armadillo, the cow, the chicken, the pig, you name it and it's probably there. >

At the back of the restaurant above the podium where live entertainment groups will put on shows in the future is the chalk board menu! Some of the fabulous menu selections include such standards as Fried Catfish, Chicken Fried Steaks, Grilled Chicken Tenders, Chef Salad, Patti Melt Cheeseburger w/fries, & Onion Rings.

Above the blackboard is a giant wooden spoon!

To the left of the menu is the entrance to the modern kitchen where Karol and her assistants turn out some magnificient diners! Quality is her middle name, from attention to detail in decorating to picking the finest available ingredients, ensuring the proper temperatures and getting the food to your table in a timely manner.

Every table has it's own unique design...Gracia did a magnificiant job creating these!
There's room for small and large parties...believe me, space is not a problem at the wooden spoon. This building once housed a huge grocery store in 1868!

The pig is one of my personal favorites!
