The Lone Star Steakhouse (many franchised locations) offers a “Texas trio” of sirloin steak, chicken breast, and fried shrimp. The “Texas trio” combination, if offered in a restaurant, usually includes these three, although sometimes the trio’s “chicken” is replaced with quail or enchiladas instead.
“Texas Trio” can also mean the Texas harvest of watermelon, cantaloupe, and honeydew. There is also a “Texas Trio” drink with gold tequila.

One can afford to as a “Texas Trio” of smoked sirloin, enchiladas, and fried shrimp will set you back a mere $16.99, and that includes ranch beans!
Steamboat House (Houston, TX)
I got the Texas Trio (beef tenderloins, shrimp, and quail, service with rice). Beef was very tough,shrimp was not de-veined, quail was glazed with some sweet sauce but other than that it wasn’t very tasty. The best part of the dish was rice, yes, rice! But who wants to pay $28.50 for rice?
