The best burger – Texas has something else to brag about

In case you missed it, the TODAY show recently hosted a “battle of the burgers” between three chefs – Aaron McCargo from New Jersey and host of Big Daddy’s House on the Food Network; Adam Rather from Maryland and co-owner of Mother’s Federal Hill Grille; and Tom Perini from Buffalo Gap, Texas and owner of Perini Ranch Steakhouse. We are proud to say that Perini’s burger left the TODAY show judges wanting more, taking the top spot and beating the chefs from the east coast.

Thanks, Tom, for using your skills to remind the world the best can be found in Texas. It’s folks like Tom and his wife Lisa who make me proud to be Texan. They run a great restaurant in Buffalo Gap and Lisa is the Vice President of the Texas Restaurant Association, an organization that Tom was president of in 1998.

From Buffalo Gap to the White House to Moscow, and now the Today Show champion, Tom Perini continues to put Texas on the map.
