Texadelphia: Home of the Original "Texas Cheesesteak"


Philly Cheese Fries. Order these. 

If there's one thing I've learned about Texans in my 9 years here, it's this: they love them some Texas.

With that in mind, Texadelphia had an obligation to bring a twang of Texas pride to the beloved Philadelphia Cheesesteak. The Cheesesteak is one of my weaknesses. One of my favorite lunches is a piping hot cheesesteak with gooey cheese and some spicy peppers, served on a perfect hearth-baked Amoroso roll. So naturally, I was a skeptic when I first visited Texadelphia. But I'm happy to report that after only a brief hiatus, they've continued serving their tasty Texas twist on the cheesesteak on those must-have rolls. 

Texadelphia got its start in 1981 in Austin, (Texas, of course), and has always kept in the forefront of their restaurant a dedication to high quality, fresh ingredients. Each cheesesteak is made to order. They make all of their sauces in house, so if you love sauces as much as I do, this place is your playground. They pay attention to their customers. In short, what they're doing is simple, and they're doing it well.



The menu at Texadelphia features Original Texas Cheesesteaks, scratch made queso, guacamole, and salsa in addition to their other homemade Signature Sauces (see photo at the end). They also serve salads, deli sandwiches, and burgers. Their cheesesteaks and sandwiches comes served with tortilla chips and salsa. I highly recommend The Texican, which comes with your choice of beef or chicken (I always choose beef for a sandwich like this) plus grilled onions, mozzarella, and jalapeños, plus a side of queso for dipping. Yes. This is how they've won me over. Cheesesteak + Queso = Perfect lunch. 


Other popular choices are The Founder's Favorite (this one adds mushrooms and the house mustard blend) and the South Philly. Plenty of options here, y'all. 


You know I had to photograph their Sauces signage 
If you're looking to cater an office lunch, picnic, party, or office event, look no further. You can contact your closest location for all the catering details to set up your Texas Cheesesteak, Deli Sandwich, Salad Tray or Box Lunch delivery.
All Texadelphia restaurants are locally owned and operated. Texadelphia currently has 12 locations, all in Texas and (sigh)Oklahoma (See, I've learned a thing or two from Texans).

Make Healthy Choices Simple With The Halal Guys

The Halal Guys recently opened their newest Dallas area location on lower Greenville, the third in the area. The company has plans to expand further in the DFW, with the next being in north Plano in the coming weeks. The company began as a street cart in NY and now has grown to locations throughout the US and worldwide. Talk about a success story! The Halal Guys is an excellent choice for those who want to eat healthy without breaking the bank. Wondering what exactly Halal means? I had that very question a few years back upon seeing it on a restaurant door, and googled away. I also recently wrote an article for Richardson Living explaining just that. It introduces the concept and talks a bit more about the Richardson location of Halal Guys and explains their menu.  The menu is the same at all locations of The Halal Guys. You go through the line, and build your own wrap or platter. Fill it with your choice of gyro, chicken, or combo, then load it up with toppings and sauce

A Tribute to El Palacio of Mexican Food, Huntsville, Alabama

This week a large piece of my childhood will be laid to rest. I know you think I'm being overly dramatic, but if you've ever had an iconic place where you've spend a large chunk of your life, I hope you'll understand where I'm coming from on this.  I have literally 24 other restaurant story deadlines to meet, but today the only thing on my mind is the news I received yesterday. I found out by a fluke (an owner's response to a Facebook review I'd posted years ago), and ended up having to be the bearer of bad news to my family and friends who also hold this establishment near and dear to their hearts.  The first restaurant I ever loved is closing their doors this week. This is my farewell. El Palacio opened in Huntsville 51 years ago, in 1966. Jimmy and Nonie McClure opened the very first location in Amarillo in 1962 in a remodeled gas station, after the Mexican food they added to their steakhouse menu started selling like wildfire. They wanted to

Get Saucy at Razzoo's Cajun Cafe Plano

I've long been a fan of Razzoo's Cajun Cafe, a Texas born restaurant that features scratch-made Lousiana favorites. All locations are locally owned, and the 26-year-old restaurant has most of its locations in Texas, with one in NC, and some new spots TBA in the near future. Some of my favorite fried indulgences at Razzoo's are the "Rat Toes" on their appetizer menu. If you love a bit of spice, ignore the name and order up some of these jalapenos stuffed with shrimp, crab, then battered and fried, served with a Cajun Buttermilk sauce for dipping. And that's just scratching the slippery surface on all of the house-made delicious sauces at Razzoo's. National Hot & Spicy Food Day is Saturday, August 19, so in anticipation of that awesome food holiday, Razzoo's  invited us out for our own little sauce tasting, AKA Delia' Paradise. I was NOT aware that Razzoo's cooks up FIFTEEN different sauces in house, and once I found this out, I cou
