Dancing and Hanging Out at Joe Jimmy's (Seasonal)
Joe Jimmy's opened in 2011 and was an instant hit. The Cantina is the home of self-declared Mayor of Concan, Rodger the Western Diamondback Rattlesnake - aka Rattlin' Rodge. So, it's safe to say that Joe Jimmy's welcomes all kinds. The Cantina is adjacent to Neal's dance slab and plays sanctuary for sun-baked river floaters, deer hunters, bikers, cowboys and locals. Everyone enjoys fine wine, cold beer and good times.
There is never a cover charge FOR NEAL'S GUESTS and always plenty to enjoy at Joe Jimmy's. Take dancing lessons on the large concrete dance slab. Let the kids watch the evening feeding of Rattlin' Rodge. Enjoy the Live music. Joe Jimmy's is even open during the off-season for college football.
Did You Know: Joe Jimmy was a race horse owned by Mr. Tom Neal, the founder of Neal's Lodges. Mr. Neal would set up "match races" on a track they had built on the south side of the Frio River. The current location of Joe Jimmy's Cantina is the old hay barn used for the race horse!
