Ricky's Hot Chicken (Richardson) Number 86 on the List
Our journey began after founder Ricky had hot chicken for the first time. Coming from an engineering background, Ricky started by visiting Nashville and researching the history behind NHC (Nashville Hot Chicken). He started out of his garage and gave away hot chicken samples to as many people as he could so they could experience what he had the first time! The pure joy, passion and support from all over is what led to the creation of Ricky's!
Coco Shrimp (Fort Worth) Number 76 on the List
"While we all were attending BYU-Hawaii. Over four, adventure-filled years, we fell in love with the laid back lifestyle of the North Shore of Oahu. We became enamored with the way food played such an important role in the Polynesian culture. By opening a shrimp truck just like the ones you can find on the North Shore. Now that food truck has turned into 4 restaurants and we are stoked to be able to bring a taste of Hawaii back to Texas."

Local Craft BBQ (Newark) 59 on the List
"It all begins and ends in the pit room on two custom built smokers, on a constantly low temperature, burning wood that has become a staple in Texas BBQ…post oak. It’s a ritual that starts with a secret rub recipe and ends when we think it’s time to take it from the smoke bath we surround it with. Texas staples brisket, spare ribs, chicken and turkey are smoked daily along with some things that are not traditionally associated with Texas BBQ like pork belly and smoked bologna. Everything slow smoked and ready to be cut into magical planks of delicious goodness."
