We head to some of my favorite hotspots in Texas on an ALL-NEW episode of Goodtaste.
Just 30 miles outside Houston is the sleepy beach town of San Leon where a new seafood and oyster house is shaking things up with entrees so elegant, you’ll think you’ve never left the big city. Pier 6 offers seafood so fresh, they call it “tide-to-table.” They’re well known for their super-fresh oysters plucked straight from the Gulf by one of the owners, a second-generation oysterman. Try the Louisiana Blue Crab cakes served with lemon, torn herbs and an Old Bay tartar sauce. Just don’t skip on the flights of frozen cocktails and a Bloody Mary that’s brunch in a glass.
While barbecue and Tex-Mex come to mind when you think of Texas cooking, there are amazing Italian eateries across the state begging for a visit! We traveled across the Lone Star State to dig into some of the best from Temple, to Port Aransas and Galveston. We try tender braised Osso Bucco, sizzling seafood in a white wine-butter broth, and unreal wood-fired pizzas.
At the Parkway Grill in Wichita Falls, it’s game day every day! Be sure to come hungry to this iconic sports bar. They’re serving up gigantic plates of nachos and a burger so tall, they call it “The Skyscraper.” This monster has four patties, cheese sticks, and an order of onion rings stacked on top!
Don’t miss out on all of the action—and some incredible H-E-B wines!
