We've been enjoying the work of pit boss Scott Morales at Vencil Mares' Taylor Cafe since his tenure began up in Taylor Texas 5 years or so ago.

This guy knows his way around a fire.

A recent visit found us on the business end of a brace of Bohunk sausages, a few slices of outside slice, fatty [as requested ] brisket as well as a longneck of ice cold, dirt cheap Miller beer.

Vencil Mares was holding court, the waitresses were good and sassy and the late afternoon sun was breaking just right through the back door.

An O. Henry moment if ever there was one.
