State Highway 83 (SH 83) is a state highway in the U.S. state of Texas that runs 56 miles (90 km) from the New Mexico border in Yoakum County east to Welch in northwest Dawson County.

On May 21, 1928, SH 83 extended west to the New Mexico border to connect with New Mexico State Road 83. The route was transferred to SH 15 (now US 180) on August 8, 1935, though the change was not effective until September 1, 1935.New Mexico State Road 83 was realigned in the 1950s, connecting with SH 328 instead. On March 31, 1955, SH 328 was renumbered to SH 83 "for the convenience of the traveling public" In 1988, the New Mexico connecting highway was renumbered New Mexico State Road 132.
