Texas Survey Results Are Live!

You know what they say: you don't mess with Texas. Especially because residents there know a thing or two about dining out - according to our just-released 2012 Texas Restaurants Survey, Texans lead the nation in dining out, with an average of 3.8 meals per week. And no wonder they're hitting the town so much - it's cheap. The average cost of a meal there is $32.17, which is below the national average of $35.62. Yee-haw!

So, what are the best restaurants in the Lone Star State? Well, it's a mighty big region to cover, so we broke it down by city. In Dallas/Ft. Worth, the top eatery Saint-Emilion scored an impressive 29 out of 30 for Food on our scale. Japanese restaurant Uchi in Austin and Houston's Italian eatery Da Marco also received 29 scores for Food, so there's a lot of impressive dining deep in the heart of this state. Not to be outdone, San Antonio's French spot Bistro Vatel took the top Food honors in that town, scoring a 28 out of 30.

If you want to see what other eateries are worth visiting in the respective cities, you can take a look at our Google+ Page for an exclusive list of the top five in each town. The Survey is available in bookstores, online at zagat.com and via Zagat’s mobile products.
