In this ranking, we’ll only be covering banks that offer retail banking, which is the type of banking that most people are most familiar with. There are some really great commercial and institutional banks in Texas as well, such as this one here, but we won’t be discussing those types of banks in this list.
With that out of the way, let’s go over our top five banks in Texas for 2023.
1. Wells Fargo Bank
With the most branch locations compared to any other bank in all of Texas, Wells Fargo has to take the number one spot on our list this year. With 529 locations, you are all but guaranteed to be within very close distance to a Wells Fargo branch, making the management of your finances much easier.
Additionally, Wells Fargo was featured on Money.com’s best banks throughout the entire country for its large ATM network and low minimum balance required.
Sitting just shy of 500 branch locations, Chase is our number two ranked bank. It has the second most branch locations throughout the state, which makes finding one near you pretty easy. We also picked Chase for their good customer service and overall reputation and credibility.
