Here in Texas, we have a lot of satisfaction from knowing some of the brands we know and love are around the world. Let's face it, Texas is basically a nationwide brand at this point isn't it? We've all seen a Dr. Pepper ad around the nation, or some Blue Bell Ice Cream always seems to hit the right spot doesn't it?
Whatever the case may be, Texas Originals are always in style, and rightfully so. It also seems like day by day, the more growth the state of Texas experiences, the brands it brought also grow at the same rate. But it's also important that in the Lone Star State, we remember these brands that so very important to us.

Top 20 Restaurants Central Texans Wish Would Come to Temple
A while back, I asked the good people of Temple
if they could picture a good restaurant to fill the lot on North General Bruce Drive where the soon to be torn down Long John Silver's stood.
This was before it was announced that a Dutch Bros. Coffee location would open there (which was one of the places I predicted as a contender in our article).
So now Dutch Bros. is open in that spot, but the responses to my survey were interesting because they paint a picture of just how diverse Temple's population is. People recommended some familiar restaurants with locations in the surrounding area, but also a few I'd never even heard of.
