West Texas' Go-To Orders

As we finalize our Dine Like a Local feature for Volume 1 of The Scout Guide West Texas, we chatted with local business owners on their dining habits, more specifically, their go-to dishes at local restaurants. From tried and true lunch classics to special occasion orders, get to know Volume 1 in the best way possible: their favorite meals. And whether your next meal out is a carry-out lunch or a special date night, we encourage you to opt for a locally-owned restaurant to support West Texas’ culinary scene and, most importantly, the truly special people behind the fare.
