Oldie but still a goodie. Thanks for the chuckle. :)
I live just down the Highway from New Braunfels. Never heard a sole speak German. But they do have great German bakery established in something like 1845 and of course the Schlitterbahn water parks.
Lots of Germans emigrated here through Texas, especially the Port of Galveston - that's how my grandfather got here. Left Texas and ended up in North Dakota.
Anyway, there's a little town called Walburg northeast of Austin and basically the only thing there is a German restaurant - the Walburg German Restaurant (and it's a great restaurant!!) - and they still speak German there. But lots of German named towns in Texas.
FWIW, those Germans also invented that divine TX specialty, chicken fried steak.
But they prolly called it schnitzel.
Also there's a restaurant in in an rv park at Ft. Stockton that claims to have the best CFS in Texas, which is a mighty big claim...I've had it twice and they might be right
Close to where I grew up, played every nine hole course between Pecos and Lubbock (including Ft.Stockton)
On our way back and forth through west TX we stay in that park then swing up to Monahans (or vice versa) because the RV parks we've seen on I-20 around Odessa are all oil field man camps.
We don't like to drive too far. So it's Tucson, El Paso, Ft. Stockton, Abilene, Winstar World, then OKC or someplace in KS, depending on our final destination.
