Texaz Grill

Jutting out of the stucco plaza at 16th Street and Bethany Home Road since 1985, Texaz Grill is equal parts roadhouse cliche and serious steakhouse. Upon entering, allow your eyes to adjust as they wander over the dimly lit mounted trucker hats and road signs, framed photos of yesteryear diners, and the buzzing neon of beer logos. Regulars know their order — probably the fall-off-the-plate chicken fried steak, but maybe the barbecue ribs, fried catfish, or smoked prime rib. The bar is well-stocked, both with booze (they'll make just about any type of drink) and pretzels and peanuts to chew while you sip. Holidays are fun here too: We're big fans of the marinated black-eyed pea salad — or Texas Caviar — that's served on New Year's Day. New Normal: The entire Texaz menu is available for takeout and delivery via GrubHub, DoorDash, and other apps.
