Discover East Texas

The piney woods of East Texas offer the opportunity for you to eat good food at every turn. Known for smoked pork ribs and beef brisket, slow-smoked Texas barbecue is served with a sweet sauce on the side. Steakhouses serve quality cuts of beef alongside wine from numerous local wineries. Other Texas favorites, like chicken-fried steak, chili, and chicken and dumplings, are done up well. Texas is known for both Tex-Mex and authentic Mexican food, and you'll find both here. Many locally owned Tex-Mex restaurants serve fresh, handmade tortillas daily. Because most East Texas communities aren't too far from Louisiana, you can also find Cajun cuisine like shrimp and grits, crawfish etouffee, and blackened chicken.
