The foodie expedition kicks off on Fredericksburg Road, just north of downtown, where David dives into the world of kolaches and klobasneks at Bexar Kolache Company. Joining forces with owner Emily Stone, David not only explores the rich history of Czech pastries but also gets his hands dirty in the kitchen, whipping up a fresh batch of brisket klobasneks.

Heading North to Boerne, the culinary adventure takes a cozy turn at Richter Tavern, where comfort food meets fine wine. David indulges in a colossal cinnamon roll and lends a hand in the kitchen, crafting a delightful seafood appetizer that promises to elevate taste buds to new heights.

Of course, no episode of Texas Eats is complete without a hearty dose of Texas BBQ. In China Grove, just South of San Antonio, David teams up with Jordan Ford General Manager, Casey Ogletree, for an unforgettable feast at Texas Dee Willie’s Smokehouse.

Brace yourself for an all-you-can-eat BBQ extravaganza and the pièce de résistance – dino beef ribs that are sure to leave you craving more.

As the culinary journey approaches its grand finale, David brings us to the Crispy Food Truck, where the air is thick with the irresistible aroma of fried chicken sandwiches, tenders, and hardy mac & cheese bowls. It’s a crispy, crunchy, and utterly satisfying conclusion to an episode that promises to leave your taste buds dancing.
