They say everything's bigger in Texas and no more is that evident than in the state’s diverse food offerings. Being one of the biggest states in the country, Texas has all of the dining options that you would ever need. Whether you are looking for great Mexican food, a five-star dining experience, or just need to grab a quick bite in a diner while on the road, the state of Texas has something for every food lover.
If you are in the mood for authentic Mexican food, the first (and possibly only) stop you’ll need to make is a trip to El Paso. Located in the far west of the state, El Paso sits right on the border of the United States and Mexico. It should come as no surprise then that Mexican restaurants in the city are plentiful and delicious. If you’re visiting the city, you really can’t go wrong with any of the restaurants that you choose, but make sure that you try multiple restaurants to get the full experience.
While you’re traveling through Texas you will probably end up in Austin. Austin is the capital of Texas and is known throughout the world as one of the top destinations for live music. While Austin may have all of the live music you can handle, but it also has great food options as well. If you’re looking for a great option, your best bet may be to stop in at The Emerald Restaurant. A community institution, The Emerald features the best European and Irish fare. You can also get a full, four-course dinner for only $79.
Texas is a big state and there are so great restaurants to check out. No matter what type of food you are looking for, there’s a great chance that you’ll be able to find it in the Lone Star State. So if you’re craving the best Mexican that El Paso can offer, or want to fully experience everything Austin has to offer at The Emerald, chances are you’ll find something to satisfy your appetite.
