When in Texas, Eat as the Texans Do

My parents read that in Texas, there are three types of main restaurants. Tex-Mex, Steakhouse, and BBQ. Today we ate a TON of food. And when we did, we hit 2 of the 3 types. We ate small croissants at the hotel for breakfast, and then we drove for like 45 mins to a hiking spot where we were going to go on a nature walk. To my GREATEST dismay, the path was closed, so we drove to a barbecue place, called Lockhart Smokehouse, instead. We ate awesome prime rib, chile rubbed pork loin, beef brisket, pork ribs, and they were SO GOOD. I ate until I barely had room for a dessert of s'mores bread pudding (without raisins!). After that, we want to an art gallery and a museum in Fort Worth, and then, we ate more! We went to a Tex-Mex place called Torchy's Tacos. We ate an array of fajitas with beef, chicken, beef, and chorizo, and then ate Lil' Nookies (fried cookie dough balls) that were amazing. All in all, it was a successful day in the stomachs of the 4 Calling Birds.
