Mary Ellen Gonzalez

Bay Flats Lodge Staff | Texas Hunting And Fishing Lodge

Mary Ellen, also known as “Little”, wasn’t born in Seadrift, but she got here early in life. Born in Texas City, her family moved to Seadrift when she was an infant. Little got her name when she went to work at Barkett’s Restaurant.  She was so small they gave her a bench to stand on while she was washing dishes. Working at Barkett’s for thirty-six years honed Little’s cooking skills, which she brought to Bay Flats Lodge in 2018. God bless her!
