Perla's continues to serve skillfully prepared, super-fresh seafood, complemented by seasonal side dishes and piping hot hush puppies. The sunny, coastal feel of the place enhances the thrill of finding freshly shucked oysters, soft-shell crabs, and deep-sea fish from around the world being served in landlocked Central Texas. – Kate Thornberry
