Welcome aboard Wendy. I've heard that everything is bigger in Texas, never heard better. I'm Mike from southeast Louisiana, just outside of New Orleans. I've been to Texas and I hate to break it to you, y'alls food can not compare to what we have. Sorry, but it's the truth. I would say that what y'all have comes close, but sadly, I'd be lying.
If you ever want to experience so real, really good food, take a trip to Louisiana. We may be your neighbor but when it comes to food, we are a world away.
