I am traveling to Texas for a music festival in Austin the last weekend of August, and then to my hometown (Sweeny) before heading up to Galveston for a few days, and then to Houston before flying back to Phoenix. We'll be in Texas a total of 9 days.
My girlfriend has never really had the chance to taste some of the better things Texas has to offer, so I would like to make this a memorable experience for her.
We are looking for dive/hole in the wall/mom and pop places that hit the spot, and dinners where the food outweighs everything else. Having grown up around the gulf coast, I know a few spots in Houston and Galveston but any advice is appreciated.
This is the area's we will be:
Austin: Emo's, Beerland, Mohawk area
Galveston: Northside of the Island staying at Hotel Galvez
Houston: We are going to the Improv so we want to have dinner in that area before the show.
Thanks for any and all suggestions.
