April 7, 2014 and FM51 is under some kind of construction making the southern few miles pretty crunchy. This is a really cool route though and continues to be cool all the way to Gainesville at I-35. Less curvy as it goes north but the long climbs result in long views which are compelling day or night. Watch for hogs at night in TX. Loco Coyote is a must but only open Thurs-Sat. BBQ beef was amazing and the portions are, dare I say it, Texas sized!

Stopped at Loco Coyote from review and Man, that was great. Went up 51 and great turns. Be careful of loose gravel in a lot of places though.
