Local Eats across the Lone Star State

One thing that has always been an interesting experience for me in my travels is the culinary scene in a community. Whether it’s a large city or small town, the food tells its own story.

As we travel across the Texas perimeter, we’ll stop along the way for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, oh, yes, and lots of caffeine. After all, it’s more than 3,100 miles over nine days.

We’ve already scouted out some meal options. While we enjoy chain restaurants, we want to focus on the mom and pop restaurants unique to the communities on this journey and eat in the heart of Texas.

We’d love to hear from you regarding your favorite foods across Texas. Do you have enjoy a special type of food, restaurant, or food truck in the Lone Star State? Send us your favorites. Maybe we’ll stop at one along the way. If not this trip, maybe a future endeavor.

Now I’m hungry. Looking forward to your comments.

    In Odessa, Curb Side Bistro if you’re hungry for the best sliders and fries! The Barn Door Steakhouse has amazing blocks of cheese and steaks. If you’re hungry for catfish try Big Daddy’s! It’s all amazing. 😋😋

      Thanks, Mary. We’re actually meeting up with Melissa with the Pecos Trail Region in Odessa for dinner that night. Hadn’t decided on a location yet. One of these may be it.

    I usually like to find out what the ethnicity of the settlers were to find the best food. Rosenberg is great for Czech food, Fredericksburg for German, San Antonio for Tejano. The best burger I have ever eaten was at a small shack in Fredericksburg run by a lovely Peruvian lady! In my opinion, the best food I have ever tasted is in Lima, Peru. Have fun and be safe during your travels.
