These 25 Texas Foods Prove The The Lone Star State Has The Best Cuisine

Because chips without queso is blasphemous.

1. Fajitas

2. Pecan Pie

3. Brisket

There are many varieties of barbecue all over the country, but nothing beats a Texas-style brisket slow smoked for eight hours.

4. Every fried food at the Texas State Fair.

Deep frying is what makes good food great. Whether it's Oreos, funnel cakes, or Twinkies, the Texas State Fair does fried food better.

5. Sweet Tea

6. Chili and Chili con carne

Chili is the official state dish of Texas. The Texan version has no beans while the Tex-Mex version does. Both are unique, both are delicious.

7. Chicken Fried Steak

Lulu's Bakery and Cafe in San Antonio has one of the biggest chicken fried steaks you'll ever see.

8. Breakfast Tacos

9. Blueberry Cobbler

The Texan version of this Southern dish starts with batter on the bottom mixed with blueberries and more batter on top. This sweet treat is the perfect way to end any meal.

10. Kolaches

These Czech pastries are great for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and the best place to get them is at Czech Stop in West, Texas.

11. Ice Cream

12. Frito Pie

13. Tortilla Soup

14. King Ranch Casserrole

15. Chile con Queso

16. Fried Okra
