This town at the junction of I-10 (U.S. 80), U.S. 90 and Texas 54 grew from a stop on the historic Bankhead Highway and Old Spanish Trail. It is a hub to several state and national parks and a popular stop for vacationers with its sunny climate, interesting mineral deposits and abundant deer, antelope and game birds. John Madden, former television football broadcaster, called the Chuy's Restaurant in Van Horn his "Haul of Fame." Just before Super Bowl weekend, he would name his "All-Madden Team." Plaques and photos of his inductees hang in the restaurant. 1200 W. Business Loop 10.
