"Cele Store, a general store that sits amid gorgeous farmland 21 miles northeast of Austin in Manor, Texas, serves barbecue for Friday lunch and dinner, and Saturday lunch. It may be brisket, sausage, or baby back pork ribs, but it's sure to be good."

The Cele Store was first established as the Richland Saloon in 1891. Marilyn Weiss and the late Marvin Weiss purchased the store in 1951 and ran it continuously for 56 years. In December of 2007, the store closed briefly but was reopened on September 6th 2008 by Brandon Fuchs, grandson of Marilyn and Marvin Weiss. We do not use a “RUB” on our brisket and ribs. We simply use salt & pepper. The secret to our great tasting BBQ is our pit, which was built in 1964 and has been “seasoned” over the years. No pit cooks quite like our brick pit!
The Cele Store is located at the corner of Cele and Cameron roads in northeast Travis County about 7 miles East of Pflugerville.
The Cele Store serves:
Thursdays: sausage wraps and baby back ribs from 6:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m.
Friday dinner: brisket, sausage & baby back ribs from 6:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m.
Saturday lunch: serving brisket, sausage & ribs from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.
For information regarding private parties please call 512-869-9340.
For dinner, advance reservations are recommended so that the kitchen staff knows how much meat to prepare that day.
The Cele store was featured in several movies, including Secondhand Lions, A Perfect World and Texas Chainsaw Massacre I, II and III. See our Film and Photo credits page and the Movie Clips page for more details about the movies, photo shoots and music videos filmed at this unique historic Texas landmark.
