A nice cross between a convenience store and a grocery store - the place you want to have around the corner when you run out of syrup midway through the pancakes.
A simple, unpretentious, and loud, bricked-in Eastside rock room, the Badlands has the same vibe as a basement show. The mid-sized venue, opened in 2014 by Shane and Shannon Howard (owners of the neighboring Romani Gallery), stages blue-collar bands from the rock, punk, and metal leagues and features a small smoking patio. Those who tread off the beaten path to Badlands never leave hungry because the kitchen serves up a bounty of deluxe hot dogs with locally sourced ingredients and an all-Texas bar.
Visit this casual, cool spot for café au lait, a cheese plate and wine, or a luscious open-faced tartine. Tasty and beautifully presented sandwiches, salads, soups, coffees, desserts, and breakfasts round out the menu.
Tucked into the industrio-residential landscape, a single field opens behind the historic farmhouse - flowers dotting one edge, Miss Ethel's Hen House off to the side, and a sea of greens quietly collecting sunlight to feed their delicious offspring. The vegetable stand is open 9-1 Wed. and 9-2 Sat.
This trailer serves excellent Louisiana-style fare.
This Manor stalwart has taken traditional roadhouse food to a delicious new level. Try the green eggs and ham, but don't miss the comfort food for lunch and dinner. This place is worth the drive.
Tacos, sandwiches, highly regarded burgers, a full complement of draft beers, and a broad selection of juices and locally made kombucha complement the neighborhood staples of coffee and live music.
A slice of the Hill Country near the Mueller development. Try the Dewberry Hills chicken or an individual skillet of rabbit and dumplings. Go early for brunch here, and try the beef tongue hash.
Everything from Chef Jesse Griffiths' unassuming hotspot is local, even the tea. Expect the choicest cuts of meat, just out of the water seafood, and barely harvested vegetables. The service is as adept as the kitchen.
