Let’s just say it: Dr Pepper is the soft drink of choice around these parts. Texas is the official home of this soda pop. There’s even a Dr Pepper Museum in Waco, Texas, that’s a must for any true blue fan to add to their bucket list of adventures. Everyone knows that when you order a coke at the restaurant you mean a refreshing ice cold glass of Dr Pepper, of course!

2. Whataburger

Whataburger, need I say more? No other state does burgers like we do. It’s a Texas treasure we all crave morning, noon, and especially at night. That juicy, mouthwatering burger, loaded up with a side order of fries to boot, is sure to please. Folks are known to take away a table number or two as a souvenir, but we advise against it.

3. Breakfast Tacos

Texas is known for some of the best breakfast tacos around. Go to any corner of the state, and you will find some of the best homemade tacos that will make your mouth drool. I’m not talking just any ol’ tacos, I mean the kind you find at the neighborhood taco stands or Tex-Mex restaurants serving up some scrumptious barbacoa tacos, chorizo tacos, or just plain potato and egg tacos. Is it morning yet?
