First up, we visit a cozy little spot across the street from the famous Gruene Hall in New Braunfels that has an impressive bar stretching over 55 feet long! At Mozie’s, they serve up cushy sliders, phenomenal turkey chili and the cheesiest nachos this side of the Pecos! Then, pull up a seat at Picoso’s Mexican Kitchen in Lubbock, a Tex-Mex gem with classics like crispy Chile Rellenos and their signature ultra-cheesy, deep-fried stuffed avocado. Here, generosity is the real star: the owners donate all (yes, ALL) of their profits to those in need. Lastly, meet two lifelong friends who risked everything as teenagers to chase the American dream. Every dish at Blue Corn Harvest is made with fresh local produce, plus the can’t-miss crispy Pork Enchiladas are some of the BEST I’ve ever had.
Don’t miss out on all of the action (and incredible H-E-B wines).
