To an out-of-stater, an icehouse might simply be an old-fashioned refrigerator. But in Texas, the word refers to a cultural tradition – part neighborhood convenience store, part meeting place where folks could always grab a beer or two – and this is exactly what inspired owner Ashley Young-Turner to open The Concho Pearl Icehouse in 2013. Recreating the same neighborly vibe, The Concho Pearl Icehouse serves tasty American grub – think baby back ribs with borracho beans and potato salad, or a juicy burger topped with bacon and gorgonzola. Keeping with the icehouse tradition, a huge number of bottled and draft beers are also offered.
