Texaplex refers to the highly populated triangular region in Texas that is outlined by the Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) Metroplex in the north down to the Houston metropolitan area, over to San Antonio and Austin, Texas. When David Winans coined this descriptive term, he also intended that it capture and carry a passionate enthusiasm that would inspire and excite a nation about an incredibly influential region in the great state of Texas.

I didn't know it had this nickname at all, but it's definitely appropriate for the area! Good luck with everything!
