Mason County Coco the Cow
Mason County Coco the Cow


It’s what’s for dinner.

As in lunch.

Or supper.

As in dinner.

Where’s the beef?

All over town.


From Old French boef.

According to trusty Webster.

Beef is a full-grown ox, cow, bull, or steer.

Especially one bred and fattened for meat.

Which happens a lot around here.

Mason Monograms sells locally raised Longhorn ground beef.

One can also beef up a football team.

Go Punchers!

Or have a beef with somebody.

That’s no fun.

Have some beef tea instead.

Supposedly medicinal.

Then there’s beefcake.

Ooh la la.

Which has nothing to do with beef whatsoever.


Texas Deadwood BBQ makes beef brisket.

And beef ribs.

Willow Creek Café serves up beef pot roast on Sundays.

And Square Plate makes their own pot roast every Wednesday.

Cooper’s BBQ offers beef as well.

Santos Taqueria has Tex-Mex beef gorditas and beef tacos.

Beef fajitas can be had at Nacho’s Café.

And Mi Pueblo.

And Rico’s Café.

Get beef ribeyes at The Line Shack.

The most popular form of beef is probably the hamburger.

There’s Gigi’s.

And Dairy Queen.

And Willow Creek Café.

And Rico’s.

And Square Plate.

And The Line Shack.

Lowe’s sells frozen organic ground beef.

You’ll need to beef up your bank account to buy some.

Beats eating hormones and antibiotics.

From time to time, the Lion’s Club sells hamburgers to raise money.

Always on a Friday.

Always on the west side of the Mason County Courthouse lawn.

Always for a good cause.

Always good.

That’s Mason.
