  • Pinkerton’s Barbecue and 2M Smokehouse made Texas Monthly's 2021 50 Best BBQ Joints list.
This week's top food stories were all about snacks. Well, most of them were anyway.

Don't believe us? News about Hot Cheeto-covered Korean corn dogs, birria tacos and a reopened raspa shop were three of the Current's five most-read food stories for the week.

In non-snack news, though, a pair of San Antonio barbecue joints appeared on Texas Monthly's acclaimed "50 Best" list, and a South Texas chef wiped the floor with Bobby Flay on the Celebrity Chef's namesake TV cooking contest.
