Of course Texans cook the best steaks, but...

  Who cooks the best steaks in Texas?


Saturday, May 17th, 2014, backyard chefs from all over the Southwest came to Hico, Texas to see who cooks The Best Steak in Texas. This event brought in 106 teams all trying to win the $2,500 first place and the title "Best Steak in Texas". The event was a great success and congratulations to all the winners.
