Editorial Reviews

Abilene (Texas) Reporter-News
Naylor put her years of traveling Texas to good use, pulling together a tasty little travel guide.
Dallas Morning News
You'll never go hungry if you pack this book, which covers the state's four major good groups: barbecue, steaks, Tex-Mex and pie.
Glenn Dromgoole
We keep a copy of Texas Landmark Cafes in our car to consult when traveling around Texas. The Great Texas Line publishes useful and entertaining small books, 4.25 inches by 5.5 inches, reasonably priced ... They easily fit into a purse or pocket or glove compartment.
San Angelo Standard-Times
Houston Chronicle
This pocket-size gem focuses on Naylor's favorite dining spots in small towns and big cities.
Texas Highways
It s always a good idea to find out where the locals get their grub on, and that s what you ll do if you pick up a copy of this book. It s a handy little pocket-size volume that takes up less room than a map in your glove box. Profiled are more than 65 cafes in towns in seven regions, such as the Country Inn in Somerville, Village Kitchen in Jacksboro and Big Pines Lodge in Karnack. Unwilling to ignore urban favorites, Naylor picked one classic each in the cities of Austin (Threadgill s), Dallas (Vern s Place), Fort Worth (Paris Coffee Shop), El Paso (H&H Car Wash), Houston (Barbecue Inn) and San Antonio (Mi Tierra). Each one offers what she callsl "a celebration of honest-to-goodness, pure Texas chow.
