HEB!! We had an Albertson's but they couldn't compete down here iin the Valley. Walmart has some stuff, but never enough checkstands and very slow, at least down here. Nothing compares, but when i went to Houston, Fiesta was okay. I guess Krogers would be second as i've been there, but we don't have one down here.

I grew up in Lubbock.... so I would say United Market Street. It is an awesome chain, even better than HEB. Unfortunately the grocery stores here in Longview (East TX) have horrible produce.... and we have Walmart, Krogers, Albertsons, and Brookshires.... so sad to have so many and they're all horrible!

HEB is my favorite store overall but United is a close second.

HEB is slowly creeping into DFW area I heard its one in Midlothian or Burelson, people stop in the one in Waco and love it. Good prices mixed selections.

True. I worked at H.E.B my senior year and people not from the Texas fell in love with H.E.B. This woman from Chicago said she'd move here just for it! (I'm sure she was being sarcastic).

We don't have much of a choice here in the RGV. HEB rules because there's really no competition. Junior's, WalMar supercenter...not much else....and I am perfectly happy with HEB.

That's a hard one for me to answer, since I shop at nearly all of the brands we have in the Dallas area. As for the best one in Texas, I would not hestitate to vote for Randall's/Tom Thumb/Simon David (they're all the same chain under Safeway) since they are available in three of the top markets in Texas. Number 2 would be HEB, and Kroger, third.

HEB is always my first choice. The unfortunate part of this is that the nearest one to my house is 35 miles out. I have a Brookshire's and a Wal-Mart at 15 miles and a David's 8 miles away. Needless to say, David's gets most of my business, Wal-Mart second, HEB third, and Brookshire's fourth.

I would prefer to take the time to go to HEB but unless we have a need to restock organic foods and vegan/vegetarian stuff, we just use David's and Wal-Mart.

At this point, the Hillsboro Wal-Mart has torqued me off so bad because of price gouging (since they claim they have no competition in this area and won't even match prices from any store except the local Brookshire's) that I'm considering giving up trips to Hillsboro and I'll take the time to go to the Hewitt HEB. It's an extra half hour drive each way, but it's going to be worth it to take our $900 monthly grocery budget elsewhere. And Wal-Mart corporate will be made aware of this recurring loss.
