HOUSTON — Eater Houston lets Houstonites have their say against Top Chef, which decided the city wasn't Texas enough for the chef show, and has the mugshot of one Tashica Harris, who punched an old lady in the face after the woman told her to quit complaining about the food and service at Mama Juanita's.

AUSTIN — Eater Austin's got the details on former Statesman critic Mike Sutter's "food journalism" site and interviews Takoba owner Jose de Loera on the sweet satisfaction of being construction-free on Seventh Street for the first time in years. [-EATX-]

STATEWIDE — It's official: Top Chef Texas is real, as any good Eater reader would know based on our weeks of tips and photos. Plus: an East Texas man has been sentenced to four years in prison for scamming credit card numbers from a Chicken Express, while the town of Big Spring is set to start recycling toilet water because the drought has put them in such dire straits.
