Drivers traveling between Dallas and Austin on Interstate 35 don't have to rely on fast food. Instead they can conveniently stop in West, Texas to gorge themselves on the best kolaches in the state. The small town, located in Central Texas just outside Waco, still exhibits a heavy Czech influence due to immigration there in the 1890's.

Don't get the the fancy pants burger from West unless you like your burgers bland and overcooked. At least the restaurant gives you a great view of Los Angeles from the top of the Hotel Angeleno.
