TX is Kolache HEAVEN!
In one of the most random food visits we've experienced, we took a trip...on a tip from a friend. On the way to Austin, in the little town of West, TX is a food find like no other. It's called "The Czech Stop." A Czechlosovakian Bakery in a truck stop. It's perfect. The Kolaches are amazing. If you dont know what a Kolache is: It's a pastry. Some has sweets, cheese or fruit. Some have meats, onions and cheeses. They are A-Mazing.

Hard Eight BBQ
Hard Eight BBQ recenlty opened up its third location. Lucky for us in NASCAR, it's right near the track. This place is a bbq lovers dream! You buy your meat based on weight. The bricket is amazing and some of the best sausage around. It's a must right near Texas Motor Speedway in a town that has become known for food!

Chef Point Cafe
It's a restaurant in a Gas Station. You heard it. A gas station. But wait, it's a highly recommended, award winning place that has been featured on a few TV Shows. Yeah, listening now? C
ome ready for some five-star food and heck, you can get a fill up too! The wonderful wait-staff suggested I try the Duck. I'm not a fan of duck but they were so convincing that I gave it a try. It was fabulous. Their bread pudding will make your toes curl! THIS is your place Texas weekend.

Mia's Tex Mex
This is a must if you are in Dallas! If you want a true, tex-mex experience, run by a great family, you need to hit Mia's Tex Mex. Since 1981 Mama Mia has been serving up the best Tex Mex in Dallas. The place has become a favorite of Dallas Cowboy players as well.

Located in historic downtown Grapevine, TX, Esparza's is a gem. It's in an old house-like building. It's eclectic and offers a creative menu of Tex-Mex dining. You can eat inside or outside under draped lights.
I introduced my friends from Racing Electronics to this place and they have been going ever since. My favorite item on the menu... QUESO FLAMEADO, a skillet of melted monterey jack cheese topped with your choice of beef steak or chnicken sauteed in gralic butter with onions and bell Peppers, finished with more melted monterey jack cheese!
124 East Worth Street
When I first saw this place and saw the lines outside, I knew something was special about it. Inside, mix-matched chairs, picnic tables and a friendly staff awaits you. Fried Chicken is the name of their game.... simply put. They only have fried-chicken and chicken-fried steak on their menu. Served family style with Mashed potatoes, biscuits, salad and corn. Tony Stewart loves this place!
104 North Oak
Known for their award winning chili, this is a great choice for people staying in Grapevine. Tolbert's serves up Texas / Southwest favorites. It's also a good place for an adult beverage and some live music. They also serve "Donkey Tails." No, not actual tails from a donkey... cheese filled dogs wrapped in a tortilla and fried!
423 South Main Street
Twisted Root Burger Company
This place is pretty cool! Three chefs who were sick of eating ordinary burgers opened this place. The burger menu is fantasitc and creative. They have their own rootbeer and homemade condiments. Last time at Twister Root, MD had a Venison/Bison Burger with jalepenos that was Uber-Yummy. Check it out... it's just minutes from the track and across from Babe's Chicken!
