When it comes to good food across the country, a lot of people trust Guy Fieri's opinions. He recently shared his favorite Texas restaurant, so of course I had to look this place up.

If you can believe it, "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," hosted by Guy Fieri, is about to start its 42nd season on television. The man has dined at over 1,200 restaurants throughout the show's filming, and it honestly sounds like a dream job. You get to travel across the country and eat good food? Sign me the hell up!

Well, Mashed recently figured out what Guy Fieri thinks is the best restaurant in EVERY state is. I had to take a look at what he said for Texas. As it turns out, it's not too far away from us in Wichita Falls.

Looks like the Mayor of Flavortown loves this Dallas eatery!

Guy Fieri said The Pecan Lodge is his favorite restaurant in Texas! Located in the Deep Ellum district of Dallas, The Pecan Lodge is apparently serving up some of the best Texas BBQ in the whole state. Here's a video of his visit on the Food Network website: https://www.foodnetwork.com/videos/brisket-with-east-texas-sauce-0188241

You can also check out the video below for more of the amazing BBQ this place is cooking up, and the restaurant's side dish Guy Fieri loved called "The Hot Mess." It's a sweet potato filled with brisket, bacon, green onions and chipotle sauce. Yeah, that's a side. Some would consider that a meal!

What about Guy Fieri's favorite restaurant for our Oklahoma neighbors?

I was curious what it would be for Oklahoma, and it looks like the Oklahoma City and Dallas rivalry continues because OKC's Nic's Grill is Guy Fieri's favorite place in the state. When I was trying to look up this place, I found a video of Colin Farrell saying it's the best burger he has ever had. Holy s*** I need to try these places. When Guy was there, he recommended the onion burger.

So there you have it. Two restaurants that are about the same driving distance from us in North Texas with some damn good food. I should not have wrote this on an empty stomach because now I am hungry.
