My girlfriends and I were visiting Texas Thanksgiving weekend for the Cowboys/Saints game and decided to stay the weekend and see more of Texas. What restaurants/dishes must we visit/try? We really want that "Ultimate Texas Experience". So please let us know what places we must, must, must try during our visit. Open to Dallas (including Thanksgiving dinner), Austin, a quick side trip to San Antonio, and anything edible in between those cities.
We are pretty set on BBQ already and booked Stephan Pyles our first night for the Cowboy rib-eye and heaven and hell cake. We are not looking for Italian, French,or molecular. We can get that in other cities. We want steaks. burgers, cookoffs, Mexican/Tex-Mex (that is better than East LA), chili, did I mention meat. The only thing we are looking forward to more than the food is finally seeing Tony Romo play in person...oops.
