Texas Foodies & Dining

Worth Drooling Over

Everything is bigger and better in Texas, including the food. BBQ, Chicken Fried Steak, Queso and Tex-Mex are typically the foods that come to mind when Texas cuisine is mentioned. These mouth-watering foods don't quite live up to par when eaten anywhere else. Places like Austin, Dallas, and El Paso offer up some of the most creative and innovative food combinations. From craft beers to breakfast tacos, your mouth and stomach are in for a treat.

Eat Something

If you're looking for intimate bistros, incredible breakfast burritos, and Texas-style (duh) barbeque, then Austin is your town. Some only-in-Austin establishments include Hoek's Death Metal Pizza, Russian House, Wink, and Lamar District staples like Odd Duck and Barley Swine.

Still hungry? DFW is home to innumerable world-class dining options. From the Texas-sized steaks at Dakota’s to the sophistication of The French Room to the proudly Paleo HG Sply Co., there’s sure to be a little something for everyone. For a little Tex-Mex, try Avila’s or Mia's Tex-Mex Restaurant, both are longstanding Dallas staples.


Grab A Drink

Hill Country is a hot spot for breweries and distilleries, and is surrounded by wineries showcasing all of the Texas Spirits. If you're on foot for the night, check out the Jester King Craft Brewery, Austin Beerworks, and Live Oak Brewery – many offering tours.

Dallasites are deft with a draft and serious about spirits, and visitors won’t have trouble finding numerous watering holes for proof. The Katy Trail Ice House is the quintessential Texas beer garden, and Greenville Avenue, in the historic Lower Greenville area near SMU, is a popular strip of bars, eateries, and boutiques. 

Of course, for hop heads and barley bros, there’s Deep Ellum Brewing Company, purveyors of countless, top-quality year-round and seasonal brews – and some darn good bar food to boot.

Sip some suds during your stay – San Antonio lays claim to countless watering holes, and local purveyors are eager to show off their work. Ranger Creek Brewing & Distilling is a go-to for beer lovers on the hunt for hops, and visitors to Rebecca Creek Distillery are always in high spirits after sampling the Enchanted Rock Vodka and the Rebecca Creek Fine Texas Spirit Whiskey. The facility also hosts free public tours.

Visitor Friendly Farms in Texas

Locally-grown, fresh, organic, farm-to-table – these sayings all mean something to the many farmers, ranchers, and harvesters in Texas. But the beauty and fun of the farm is also open to visitors – better known as agritourists.

Texas agritourism is a massive adventure packed with activity. You can pick-your-own berries, browse colorful and bustling farmers’ markets, and surround yourself with adorable farm animals.
