Who is going? you and the wife? Kids and Grandkids?

Natural bridge Caverns is cool for adults and kids
My boy loves the Snake farm.

9+ hours drive, dang ... that's a long day!!! Based on Google maps, the three recommended routes are

35 to San Antonio, 37 to west edge of Corpus Christi, then down 77. (9 hours 18 minutes)
35 to north of Georgetown, then toll 130 to Lockhart (mmm, good BBQ), then 183 to Luling, then 80 to Kenedy, then 181 to Skidmore, 359 to Mathis, 37 to west edge of Corpus, then down 77 (9 hours 10 minutes)
35 to Waco, 77 all the way down (9 hours 31 minutes)

of course there are other alternate routes within a few minutes difference. When we go to Corpus/Port A from Gtown, we normally just take 130 all the way to Seguin, 123 to Kenedy, then 181 to 359 to 37 to 77. (9 hours 13 minutes)

as someone else stated, who all is going? and how frequent will you need to stop?

Lockhart sounds like a good stop. Also, Shiner might be a good stop. I've always wanted to go tour the brewery. When I was a kid, I toured the blue bell creamery in Brenham.

Is Soccer Grandma coming? Ya gotta update us on your current situation. Stopping points differ, depending upon what the latest feme fatale's in the car.

Just get on the dreaded I35 'til you hit San Antonio. Don't bother stopping anywhere, except maybe Highway Department rest stops. Take the loop to the east around Austin. If you have to eat, eat at the Liberty Bar on the close southside of San Antonio, not too far off the highway. (Google it.) Keep going. For supper, eat at King's Inn in Riviera (pronounced "ri-veer-a"), off 77 (closer to the water already). Warning: Do NOT stop in Robstown. And...bada-bing, you're there.

You're welcome.

Well. The trip from Dallas to San Antonio sucks. And thats the best part of the drive.

Pretty sure Kings Inn is closed one day a week, Monday I think. Keep that in mind.
