Don’t mess with Texas, especially when it comes to food. The second largest state in the U.S. by land area is the originator of Tex-Mex cuisine, is at the forefront of food truck technology and mobile culinary acumen, and is home to some incredible steak. But that’s not all the birthplace of such larger-than-life characters as Lyndon Johnson, Willie Nelson, George Foreman, and Beyoncé has to offer. See why the Lone Star State is a total standout in our second annual guide to the best food and drink in every state.

How did we compile this assortment of restaurants from the great wide expanse that is Texas? Over the course of the past year we’ve honored everything from its best hot dogs and fried chicken to its best bar and craft beer in our comprehensive and wide-ranging lists and rankings, compiled through extensive research and with input from a wide network of site contributors, bloggers, journalists, and chefs. We're thrilled to celebrate the best food and drink in every state, and you can find our Texas gallery here.
