Driving across TX- Shreveport, LA to Dallas on I-20, then 287 to Amarillo.

I've looked at lots of threads, but can't find one that covers this expanse- especially the hwy 287 part. Can anyone help with this stretch of road? Any kind of food welcome, as long as it's made with love! I'm particularly interested in Mexican, but the man does love the 'que.

Probably will stop for the night in Wichita Falls, if anyone has good recs there.

Thank you for the help!

    Found this post re: I-20 from Shreveport to Dallas, so mostly looking at that lonesome looking stretch of 287 to Amarillo.


    Thank you.

      has been voted one of the BBQ places in TX. I've been there and I 2nd that vote. It's just a drop south of *20 and very well worth the detour.
