Austin, Texas is home to the oldest restaurant in the entire Lone Star State, but somehow other eateries come and go like the seasons. Even though this restaurant is relatively new to Central Texas, when you serve up food so good that Guy Fieri calls you best in the state, you can probably expect to stick around for a while.

According to this article in MinnPost, restaurants featured on Triple D do not just see a small buzz, they often see jumps in revenue from 50% to 500%. At the time that article was written, of the 800 restaurants featured,

"Only three area DDD restaurants have closed, and none attributed the closing to the celebrity."

What is the top Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives restaurant in Texas?

For a town known as being ground zero on the bar-b-que trail, it is nice to see a non BBQ spot get the top spot. When you look at the Google Maps of the current location for Counter Cafe, you will see as recently as 2018 it was a pizza joint.

Now, that it was been anointed by Guy Fieri in this Delish article as not only Triple D worthy, but the top Triple D spot in Texas, you can most likely bet the only reason this location closes is because they had to move into a larger building. So, when do you plan to check out Counter Cafe for yourself?
