One of the best parts of going out of town is going to a restaurant that we don't have here in the Permian Basin. Trying food and visiting restaurants that we don't have in the area is a big fun part of heading out of town. And, once you find something you like, anytime you are in that town you head to your NEW favorite out-of-town spot.

So, are these the TOP 5 Out of Town restaurants Midland Odessa visits the most? Which ones would you add to the list? Comment below

1.  CHEESECAKE FACTORY

How many times have you heard your family or co-workers say they made a trip up to Lubbock and YES stopped at the Cheesecake Factory. Better yet, brought one of those cheesecakes to the Permian Basin. It's like.... going to Lubbock, make sure you hit up the Cheesecake Factory. It's almost a given if you're making the trip to Lubbock. And you might as well hit up the mall since your there.

3. IN-N-OUT

Yes, Whataburger rules in Texas, but maybe that's why we hit up In-N-Out when we go out of town. Because we don't have one. I always hear people say they got their 'In-N-Out FIX when they went out of town.
