I used this Texas guide on a recent trip to that state, in order to find hotels, restaurants, and interesting sites. It turned out to be a great overall source for the trip, particularly on the restaurants. We found great barbeque, southern breakfasts, and tex-mex food. The small area maps were also very useful. This is a good choice for anyone considering a trip to the great state of Texas!
