Everything is bigger in Texas, and that includes restaurant selection. If you’re looking for a familiar eatery while visiting Corpus Christi, here are a few spots that might make you feel right at home that also happen to be from or headquartered in the Lone Star State –

A Taste of Texas - Fuddruckers


This tasty hamburger joint relishes itself to being started in San Antonio, Texas, and being headquartered in Houston, Texas. Specialty burgers include natural, organic exotic meats and they also cater to vegetarians. Local tip: Cheese with the fries is fantastic!!!

A Taste of Texas - Freebirds

Freebirds World Burrito

The original Freebirds started in California but it didn’t take long to set up shop in College Station, Texas. This popular eatery features multiple size burritos for the children in your group, all the way to a Monster-sized (literally, that’s the name of the order) burrito that many have had to “wrap up” and take home. Local tip: The guacamole is good on nearly everything!

A Taste of Texas - Rudy's

Rudy's Country Store & Bar-B-Q

You can’t visit Corpus Christi without having BBQ! Well you can - it’s your trip but you’d be missing out! Rudy’s BBQ started near San Antonio, Texas, and has become a popular place for locals and visitors alike. The restaurant even showcases its specialties on the building! Local Tip: Try the loaded baker (baked potato) with brisket and/or sausage. Depending on the store traffic, they may run out of baked potatoes.

A Taste of Texas - Grub

Grub Burger Bar

Build your own burger? What a great idea! Grub Burger has recently expanded to Corpus Christi (originating in College Station) and not only features fantastic burgers, but really awesome desserts infused with adult beverages. Of course, you can get these without the infusion and it’s still tasty!!! Local Tip: Like mushrooms and spice? Ask about the Voo Doo Mushroom burger!

A Taste of Texas - Fuzzy's

Fuzzy’s Taco Shop

It doesn’t have to be Tuesday to enjoy tacos! You don’t even have to be in Fort Worth, Texas to enjoy the wonderful menu at Fuzzy’s Taco Shop! If you’re on the Southside, stop in and give it try! From full dinners to Baja tacos, Fuzzy’s has something for every taco enthusiast. Local Tip: Try one of the great margaritas!
