We dine in a 100-year-old school house in Castroville and get a lesson in down-home country cooking at Cora’s 471 Grill. Take in the live music and fall air while you dig into the perfectly golden brown chicken fried steak with silky gravy, buttery Peach Cobbler or their Texas-sized nachos.
Then, Join me in the college town of Lubbock for a little bit of Abuela’s cooking. Montelongo’s is one of the hottest Mexican restaurants in West Texas – literally! These recipes have been passed down for generations, including an incredibly spicy salsa that isn’t for the faint of heart. You’ll hear the incredible story of the grandmother who started this Mexican food mecca with just $400 and a tiny home kitchen.
Lastly, throw on your lederhosen and grab your beer stein because we’re making a stop at King’s BierHaus in Houston. At this Authentic German restaurant, it’s Oktoberfest all year long! Considered one of the best German restaurants in America, do not skip on King’s classics like Schnitzel, Spaetzle and Strudel, or their daring Bratwurst made of rabbit and rattlesnake.
Don’t miss out on all of the action (and incredible H-E-B wines).
