The Most “Texan” Restaurants in Texas

Jessica Hamilton of the Houston Chronicle gives her opinions as to the “most Texan” restaurants in the Lone Star State.  Her unimaginative No. 1 is the Big Texan Steakhouse in Amarillo famous for its 72 oz. steak challenge.  Red was pleased to see that Mary’s in Strawn – a place frequented by Red y familia – was on the list.  If you are driving I-20 between Abilene and Fort Worth and have a hankering for some fresh fried frog legs, Mary’s is your place.   Make the short detour north to Strawn, but expect a wait on Friday or Saturday night and remarkably cold beer.
