According to Grub Street, Dallas-based state rep Jason Villalba’s pleas to get Huy Fong Food’s Sriracha factory moved to Texas are going unanswered.

Game over, Texas. The Sriracha dream is pretty much done. Unless there’s a surprising end, like the Colts screwing over the Kansas City Chiefs at the very last minute.
