Here in the Lone Star State food is like a religion, third in line behind football, and, well, actual religion. We spend hours smoking meat. We are picky about the definition of kolaches, which really aren’t even a thing in other states. We are snobby about what constitutes Mexican food, and Texans pretty much-invented queso dip so don’t get us started. Yes, Texans take food seriously. However, we really do like to laugh, too. Here are nine oddly named Texas restaurants that may give you a chuckle.
“Where the elite meet in bare feet” reads the sign for the Poop Deck in Galveston.
This Plano sandwich shop gets all my love. It’s like a stairway to heaven.
Just enjoy your innocence while it lasts. You can usually find this elotes booth at the historic Market Square in San Antonio.
It’s just so Pho King delicious.
You can tell how spicy the Korean fusion is at this Carrollton restaurant from the irate chicken’s inflamed rear-end. Thus, the name.
Head out to Frisco to get a Hurts Donut that won’t leave you bruised.
This Austin food truck may be delicious but I don’t know if I have the guts to invite anyone there.
This Hutto bakery must be such an awesome place to go when you have the munchies.
…ok. I better stop while I’m ahead here.
