FYI, the new Texas Monthly has a nice article where to eat in Texas's biggest cities--Austin, Dallas, Ft. Worth, Houston, San Antonio. Sorry, El Paso, you only get one mention at the very end of the article. The article is divided into sections like: "Where's the scene?" , "I want to impress the boss.", "Where do you go for home cooking?", "Is there such a thing as good barbecue in a big city?"
There are about 20 restaurants mentioned per city with a mixture of ritzy and low-down places though the focus is probably a little more upscale than what we discuss on this board. I think there selection is pretty much right on; for instance, highly chowhound Austin places like John Mueller's and Las Manitas are discussed.
If you see it, check it out.
