It has been nearly a year since we last visited this topic. The Texas food scene is on fire as national media have finally discovered that there is no better state in our glorious union for eating high on the hog. Austin and San Antonio alone have a typical state’s worth of great restaurants.

We were late to the Twitter party but once we got our foot in the door, no matter how hard the host slammed and shoulder butted us, we weren’t going anywhere. This is the third installment of this series. Looking back over parts one and two {http://www.scrumptiouschef.com/food/Austin-Food-On-Twitter} it’s amazing how many accounts that we formerly championed that we’ve unfollowed. Most common culprit being the use of Twitter to broadcast Foursquare updates. It’s always tempting to show up where ever people are trumpeting their presence and commence to ass kicking but instead we normally just hit the unfollow button. Models of forbearance.

It’s great that you’re at Rudy’s Country Store eating corporate brisket with 15 others, now please shut the fuck up and quit boring us.

But there are always shiny new toys to play with too. Like these accounts that we love and cherish for their high entertainment value:
