AOL Travel Editor's Review

Bring your boots, grab a Lone Star and get ready to dance, because the floor at the Broken Spoke is second only to the music. The queen of England, Clint Eastwood and Dolly Parton have all cut a rug here. The Spoke is a true honky-tonk with history. It opened in 1964, and country legend Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys were onstage regulars. Now you can catch Dale Watson, Gary P. Nunn, the Derailers and more. The action starts when the band does (anywhere from 8 to10PM)—and goes until closing time at 1:30AM (not 2AM like most bars), but come early for dance lessons (8-9PM) and the food, especially the chicken-fried steak. It’s a favorite of Austinite—and former Spoke performer—Willie Nelson.
