I enjoy checking out the articles about various towns and other places and things
at the Texas Escapes website. the web adress is www.texasescapes.com
Well,today, one of the towns they featured was Friona, in west Texas. The land was part of the XIT ranch, which they later sold.Shortly there after the land was promoted for a town site and the community was named Frio, meaning cold, for Frio Draw. Anyways, they have some photos of the town.
One of the photos is of a sign welcoming people to Friona, Cheeseburger Capital of Texas. I don't know how it got that distinction.Maybe Roadfoodies up that way have an idea and can fill us in.
