So. I arrived that Saturday mornin' on Southern time as always ready to taste all the water. We arrived in Mineral Wells a little after lunchtime to a deserted main street. We promptly hustled into the only open local cafe desperate for salvation from the Texas heat. The young boy at the counter looked at us with amusement when we declined his day old shrimp po-boys. We'd come for one item and it wasn't food poisonin'.We ordered out water and quickly left out to find food.
Minutes later we found our-self at the Mineral Wells Co. ready for pictures and touristy information. I scrunched my nose as I tried each bit of water. This tasted nothin' like medicine and wasn't as bad as the young boy made it out to be.
. Mineral Wells Crazy water is #124 on the #TravelinTexan bucket list.
- Mineral Wells is about 1hr outside of Fort Worth in Palo Pinto county
