The one I saw all the time when I lived there was "The best chicken fried steak in the state".

I would also often see signs that began with "Texas sized....." For example, "Texas sized savings!", "Texas sized dinner!", "Texas sized deals!", etc. etc.

When I first looked at the thread title, I thought you are talking about signs of intelligence.
But then I saw you are talking about Texas....

There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

I don't buy the 'original' mambo-jambo. Just a way for the locals to get off on feeling superior. On the occasions I go to the North End when somebody mentions they are to the effect of "original" I always feel like "hey I don't tell you MY problems".

Don't forget about AMD, Bell Helicopter, and what used to be Consolidated Aircraft/General Dynamics (home of the B-36 and F-16). Dr. Pepper is also a Texas invention.
