H-E-B has been serving Texas for more than a hundred years and has been a staple for most Texans.

It should come as no surprise that H-E-B was ranked as the top supermarket in Food & Wine Magazine for 2020.

Food & Wine Magazine unveiled its annual list of top 10 supermarkets on July 1 with H-E-B taking the top spot.

In the article, the Magazine mentions that while politicians scrambled to handle the COVID-19 pandemic, H-E-B was being strategic and building a company-wide emergency plan to deal with the crisis.

“From the roving band of mariachis enlisted by one store manager at the height of the panic buying phase, to a useful assistance program for customers trying to access federal stimulus funds, to the mid-crisis launch of an initiative selling prepared foods from top regional chefs like Chris Shepherd, the home of Here, Everything’s Better, a store nearly everybody already liked, did the most possible to lock down Texans’ undying affection,” says the magazine on their website.

While H-E-B wasn’t ranked on their list at all last year, H-E-B’s Central Market chain was ranked number two on the list.

They go on to say, “There are those who think they are shopping at the best supermarkets in the country, and then there are the H-E-B shoppers who know this for a fact.”
