Get excited, Texans – it’s time for another road trip! Now, our previous road trip articles were cool and all, but this takes things to a whole new level. Combining two of life’s greatest joys, exploring new places and eating, is bound to be a success. Especially when those places are in Texas and the food in question is barbecue. That’s right! We’re about to embark on a Texas barbecue road trip.
Just like the other road trip articles, all the work is done for you. (Aside from the driving, of course.) The Google Map with all the restaurants and directions is right here. So who’s ready for two days of delicious eats and (very) full bellies?

Texas barbecue road trip
October 12, 2020
What are the best barbecue restaurants in Texas?
There are so many amazing BBQ restaurants in Texas. If you want to extend your road trip by a day, take a trip to Snow’s BBQ in the town of Lexington. Like the famous Franklin BBQ, this delicious eatery sees long lines every morning. We promise it’s worth setting an alarm for, though. You just can’t get smoked brisket like this anywhere else.
What are the best Tex Mex restaurants in Texas?
There is no shortage of amazing places to get Tex Mex in Texas. Everyone raves about the food from Matt’s El Rancho in Austin, and it’s easy to see why. This iconic eatery crafts their tortillas from scratch every day, and their salsa is spicy and delicious. Be sure to order their famous chile relleno! This dish is so good, former president LBJ once had them flown to the white house.
What are the best sandwich shops in Texas?
For an amazing sandwich, you have to head over to Alvin Ord’s in San Marcos. This neighborhood deli is known for crafting giant sandwiches served on soft, freshly baked bread. It’s one of the best sandwich shops in Texas. Come see why! After your first bite, you’ll want to come back again and again.
