Gigantic Steaks, Top-50 BBQ and Pizza with Shiner

This week on Texas Eats, David Elder visits Spechts Texas, a historic country store that now features live music and serves gigantic steaks and beers. He learns some history about the property and tastes a hand-cut grilled rib eye of epic proportions!

Next, David takes us to a no-frills Hawaiian restaurant in Schertz serving delicious Katsu and other Hawaiian specialties. He talks with the owner, Samson Kalani, about Hawaiian culture and what brought him and his family to Texas.

Next, a top 50 barbecue in Texas, 2M Smokehouse in San Antonio, greets David with an insane platter of high-end barbecue. He talks with the owner about his craft and how his wife creates all the baked treats from scratch.

Next, head to Waco for Southern comfort food at Chip and Joanna Gaines’ restaurant, Magnolia Table. He tastes chili cheeseburger and some delicious sweets.

Next, David heads to Academy Sports + Outdoors for a tour of their BBQ section. He grills cheeseburgers and discovers an upcoming grilling workshop!
