It's all over...even in the frozen food section of our market!

I always assumed it was call Texas toast because it is bigger than other toast.

It's also good for hot, open face meat & mashed potatoes sandwiches (Manhattans).  Awhile back I used Sunbeam's version for some.
 
As far as frying/griddling goes, any bread will taste better than its toasted counterpart because of the browned butter solids it picks up (think egg-in-a-toast/Toad in the Hole).

In all the years we have lived off and on in the San antonio area, going all the way back to  the 1950s when my dad was stationed at Kelly Airforce Base, I have never eaten at a Pig Stand. The one remaining is on broadway. I know where it is, just haven't been there yet.

Manhattans? In Manhattan they're called hot roast beef (meatloaf, turkey) sandwiches. Here they don't know from open face. The put a slice of bread on top, cut the thing in half, put the mashed potatoes between the two halves and call it a Split. I was here in Central Ohio for three years before I saw one at the next table in a restaurant. I told my server I'd have a hot roast beef sandwich and she told me they didn't have that. I pointed to the one on I'd seen and she said it was a Split.
