The Broken Spoke is one of the few places left where you can sit and enjoy a country fried steak, beer or whiskey, hear live country music and dance the two-step. Last year they celebrated their 50th anniversary. Back then they were surrounded by countryside, there are tales of neighbors riding horses down Lamar. Nowadays they are flanked by towering condos. Help Blue Yonder Films complete their documentary so that the world can learn the rich history of the Broken Spoke.
When you enter the Broken Spoke it’s like walking into a time-capsule from Texas in the early 60’s. In one of the rooms they have their own museum of Austin Country music history with photos and artifacts but the entire restaurant itself has changed very little in that long time. Owners James and Annetta White are still a staple in this legendary place where Willie Nelson, Dale Watson, Ray Benson and Billy Willis all played.
