Not only my first time in Houston, but my first time in Texas

I've spent the last couple of hours reading through CH posts for Houston and I'm finding all the 'first timer' and 'best' lists a little too international. I'm currently working in the Middle East (Dubai) and I travel a lot to India, Asia and Europe. I don't want to eat any of those cuisines in Houston when I'm there for only four days at the beginning of December. I want to 'taste' Houston, to get a feeling of what Texas (at least that part of Texas) has to offer in terms of local cuisine.

I feel I should be looking for barbecue, Tex-Mex, maybe some Gulf seafood. But is there a Texan cuisine that can be sampled? (What did multi-generation-locals grow up eating?)

Any guidance, or suggestions in any of these categories would be greatly appreciated!
