Texas is cattle country, and the city of Alpine, which is located in the panhandle, has some great steak and barbecue restaurants. If you're in the mood for some barbecued meat, sauce-smothered baby back ribs and slow cooked brisket are popular dishes here. Most BBQ joints have their own special sauces and seasonings, so each place you visit will probably feature dishes with their own unique flavors. Most steak restaurants feature a variety of cuts like New York strip, prime rib, and T-bones along with farm-fresh veggies and mashed potatoes. Tex-Mex is also a popular cuisine here; most of these spots serve up favorites like burritos, tamales, and enchiladas. There are also a number of bistro-style restaurants with cuisines that range from Japanese and Chinese to Italian.
