“Authentic TexMex in Tomball, TX. Delicious fajitas, tacos and flank steaks. Of course the margaritas are Texas quality so don't have too many :-) Live music on weekends and lots of parking make this a Saturday night mainstay!”

Bakery
“Eclectic, local family owned bakery that makes an amazing array of fresh, organic baked goods and fresh ground coffee. There's nothing conventional about this bakery which makes it a popular destination for both locals and tourists in the area. Enjoy an aromatic coffee sitting outside under an oak tree with a delicious muffin, croissant or some other delight from their bakery.”

Café
“If you're new to Texas or your 7th generation, this BBQ place will be a delight. Consistently rated as one of Texas's Top 10 BBQ locations it brings a unique blend of classic Texas BBQ infused with different blends of chocolate. This family owned business has the husband smoking a wide variety of meats and the wife creating amazing chocolate desserts. They meet in the middle and create some amazing Texas BBQ. Lines start early but its always worth the wait!”
