Texas City Reviews

Texans don't play around when it comes to barbecue, thick steaks and Tex-Mex food, and you're not going to find any better chili than spicy Texas chili. Chips and queso has become the state's unofficial appetizer, while hundreds of Made in Texas micro-beers and sparkling wines grace restaurants and gathering spots throughout the state.

Following regular-season football, the second most popular sport in Texas is spring football. Fans follow teams like the Dallas Cowboys, Houston Texans, the University of Texas Longhorns, the A&M Aggies, and hundreds of high school squads that helped inspire the Friday Night Lights book, movie and TV show. On many Texas calendars, the year really begins in September with football's opening kickoffs.

I was originally born in Maryland but when I was around 4 years old, my family and I packed up and moved to Texas City, TX. Why Texas City? My dad seen it as a perfect job opportunity for him and he took it. Little did he know, it was one of the best decisions he's made for his family. I've been every since I was a little kid and still to this day, I grow more and more in love with it. It's not too busy and crowded like Houston or rural and bland like Waco. Texas City is the definition of best of worlds. It's easy to fall in love with everything about Texas City. The people, landscape & environment, the festivities and the town spirit is what draw you in.
