A spacious smoke shop situated in downtown Abilene, The Leaf offers an aromatic array of cigars, pipes, and other smoldering smoke accessories. Let experienced tobacconists take you on a tour of The Leaf's walk-in humidor that features thousands of cigars, including Oliva brand ($4–$9), lauded on many occasions by Cigar Aficionado, and fragrant pipe tobacco, such as Samuel Gawith and McClelland ($4.50–$6.50 per ounce).

The Leaf also provides an extensive selection of elegant tobacco pipes for those desiring to look dignified in spite of the Groucho Marx mustache that’s tattooed to their face.

The meat maestros of Renee’s Rib Shack cook their ribs in the smoke of smoldering apple wood, regularly slathering on layers of homemade sweet or spicy barbecue sauce.

Sandwiches, such as the pulled pork ($3.50) or the half-pound double burger ($4.49), round out a menu of American-style eats and roost upon fluffy buns like mother geese roost upon nests filled with the rough drafts of nursery rhymes. Assist ribs and sandwiches with their utility bills by recruiting roommates such as a 6-ounce side of bubbly mac ‘n’ cheese ($1.49) or a pile of cornbread ($0.30).

At Taco Casa, Mexican cuisine maestros conjure up a menu of crunchy nachos, soft tacos, layered burritos, and more from fresh ingredients.

When Travis Dickey opened the first Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in 1941, the menu offered beef brisket, pit hams, barbecued beans, potato chips, drinks, and that’s all. By focusing on perfecting the flavors of a few dishes, Travis was able to increase quality and, ultimately, the number of customers. Patrons were so enamored of the food that the restaurant eventually expanded into a nationwide franchise, allowing Americans all over to wear badges made of barbecue sauce. Dickey’s has been passed on to Travis’s sons, but not much else has changed—the quality meats are still seasoned and smoked onsite, and except for the addition of spicy cheddar sausage in 2011, the menu has remained largely the same for the last 50 years.
Regional meats ensure that the most succulent Texas-style chopped beef brisket, old-recipe polish sausage, and fall-off-the-bone pork ribs make it to tabletops. Sides such as mac 'n' cheese and green beans with bacon continue to enhance feasts with an extra punch of homestyle tastiness. Each meal comes complete with complimentary ice cream, soft rolls, and dill pickles.
