Good post, Houstoner. You promote and make a great case for some good ones!

But? Don't forget the classic Texas "Chicken Fried Steak" (smothered in white cream gravy).

I was answering more for Houston and this region of Texas than the state overall. I don't know many people who eat CFS on a regular basis, it's more of an occasional thing if people eat it at all (I don't), and it wasn't invented here, so I wouldn't single it out as being a food particular to the Houston area. Anyway, I included it indirectly; it falls under soul/Southern.

In Oklahoma.......ribs, fried okra, chicken & dumplins, corn bread.

If you really want to get Okified you eat at Sonic and Braums. You also know what a Frito Chili Pie is as well as a Del Rancho steak sandwich!
