Photo Sep 17, 12 28 12 PM    1/23/2013 – I took a trip in the Texas Panhandle this week and found a “hidden gemPhoto Sep 15, 4 29 19 PM” in Littlefield, Texas.  Traveling South on Highway 385, South of Hereford, Texas, just before you cross the railroad tracks and into Littlefield you will find a small building on your left with a sign stating “Mike’s Beef Jerky” .  When you enter you will be Photo Sep 17, 12 21 14 PMamazed at the selection Photo Sep 17, 12 24 43 PMof antiques displayed in this store, but that is not the “hidden gem” to which I am referring.  Mike Tucker, the proprietor, makes the most tasty beef jerky in the state of Texas!  People from all over the state have enjoyed his jerky, as well as folks in Colorado and Photo Sep 17, 12 26 08 PMsurrounding states.  There is a rumor that when the trains that pass by right in front of his store they sometimes stop and buy jerky!  Mike will also fill mail orders.  His official address is : 

Mike’s Place

134 N. Eastside

Littlefield, Texas 79339


Why not take a drive down there or give Mike a call and see what I am talking about.  Be sure to tell him “Gene, the Travel Guy, sent me”
