The Best Tacos are at Bob’s!

What started in 1991 as only a sno-ball stand, Bob’s Taco Station in Rosenberg, TX now serves arguably the best tacos in Fort Bend County! Bob’s has been featured on Guy Fieri’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” and serves up tacos and burritos on their homemade tortillas. You can also buy tamales by the dozen! Alpha’s Karlee Rios is a family-friend of Bob himself and says the food is definitely worth the stop. For their menu and location, visit: https://bobstacos.com

A Burger for a Cause

If you’re making your way to the Texas Hill Country for the long weekend, we recommend taking a lunch break at the Alamo Springs Café in Fredericksburg! Located between Fredericksburg and Comfort, Texas Monthly magazine voted their burgers some of the best in Texas. This Memorial Day, $1.00 from every burger will benefit Alamo Springs Volunteer Fire Department.

Looking for your 15 minutes of fame? You can attempt their Jefe Challenge – their famous cheeseburger with 6 beef patties, 6 slices of cheese, and a large order of fries. Complete the challenge and you get your picture added to their “Gluttons Wall-of-Fame!”

For restaurant hours and to check out their menu, head to their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/alamospringscafe/.

Fossasti’s Delicatessen

Alpha Testing’s Chris Pape was in Victoria, TX this week, and stopped for lunch at the oldest deli in Texas! Established in 1882, Fossasti’s Delicatessen is part western saloon, part New York deli. Have a seat at the spittoon-style bar, order yourself a root beer (in a frosted mug of course!), and enjoy one of their many specialty sandwiches. Finish up with some peach cobbler, and you’re all set to head home! For more information on Fossati’s, head to their Facebook page!
