Thurber smokestack

When you stop in at the SmokeStack, you can be sure you're going to have a good meal and a great time. We've always been big on hospitality and make everyone who walks through the door feel welcome.

Our family life has always revolved around our kitchen at home—the place where we laugh, talk, and cook up the best comfort food you can imagine. The SmokeStack is an extension of our home kitchen, where good, homemade food brings people together. Our regular customers are a big part of our family, too.

Old Thurber Drugstore We started the SmokeStack over years ago in Thurber's old drugstore and have been a favorite meeting place for families traveling I-20 ever since.

When the old drugstore burned in 1992, we rebuilt the restaurant in the north end of the old Texas & Pacific Mercantile building. Made with original Thurber bricks in the late 1890s, the Mercantile used to sell everything from cribs to coffins to the company miners.

Our restaurant got its name from the 128-foot-tall power plant smokestack that once provided the entire town of Thurber with electricity. Look for it when you're cruising on 1-20—we're in the only remaining Thurber Brick building left in beautiful downtown Thurber, Texas.

If you're in the area, drop on in for a bite. We've got a booth with your name on it.
