While the origin of the hamburger is up for debate, one Texas historian has traced it back to Athens, Texas in the late 1800s. Since then, restaurants and diners across the country have claimed to serve the best burger. With places like Coyote Bluff Café in Amarillo, and Mel’s Country Café in Tomball, Texas is not lacking in delicious burger options. Let’s not forget that Texas-based fast-food chain Whataburger was recently named #1 in the country as well!

Texans loves tacos, so why not eat them for every meal of the day?! Tex-Mex has become an honorary American food group, and breakfast tacos are a big part of that love! Whether stuffed with bean and cheese, chorizo, potato and egg, or any other combination of goodness, Texas is all about tacos – even in the a.m.!

Breweries like Real Ale Brewing Co. in Blanco and Live Oak Brewing Company in Austin are creating buzz on a national level.
