Native Highlight: @TexasFoodGawker
We aren't sure what it is about Austin TX, but it breeds some amazing individuals that have a keen eye for top-notch food pics! Ginny, the owner of Texas Food Gawker (@texasfoodgawker) is one of those leading the way. She's on fire right now finding incredible dishes and having fun doing it!
We highlighted why she started @texasfoodgawker and are giving you the inside scoop on her tops spots in Austin!
The inspiration behind the account
Food has always been a passion for Ginny, so she was always looking for a way to express that and share it with the world. Luckily for us, Instagram came around and Ginny hopped on it.
What started out as a way to share pictures with friends and family (as opposed to texting them) turned into one of the best ways to find new places to eat around Austin!
What got you so hooked on the Austin food scene?
College brought her to Austin and it was love at first sight. Great food combined with amazing live music makes for an experience unlike anywhere else! With Austin being one of those "new age cities", the changing food landscape turns out some pretty innovative dishes that are so unique. We're just thankful Ginny is there to help us reach them!
We started the Native Highlight to help people get a deeper understanding of the incredible individuals behind the accounts we love. It's amazing to hear why they fell in love with the food in their area. As for that ever-growing list, we're excited to see which places are on it. We will just have to keep following @texasfoodgawker to find out!
Whatever it takes
If we didn't have people like Ginny that are willing to take on the embarrassment to get awesome food pics, Instagram would be a pretty boring place. These are the types of pictures that you take one look at and immediately get hungry. We admire that kind of determination, and @texasfoodgawker is definitely someone we want on our side.
Why you need to follow @texasfoodgawker right now
Ginny let us know how much pride she takes in making sure you get everything you need to make a decision in her posts. The picture is high quality and shows you what the dish is all about. Unlike other accounts that leave you asking "I wish I knew the name of that dish", Texas Food Gawker makes sure to tell you exactly what it is she's eating.
We also love how different the places are. It doesn't matter if you have a sweet tooth, love a nice latte, or prefer some mouthwatering pizza, @texasfoodgawker has something for you!

The top spots from @texasfoodgawker
Don't go here without ordering a Ranch Water. The shrimp tacos are my favorite in Austin.
This is my favorite for picking-up lunch. The build-your-own bowl is my go-to.
