Let's Eat

Spring Creek Barbeque

21000 Katy Fwy, Katy, TX 77449

At Spring Creek, you start to smell the barbeque before you even enter the building, and when you do get to order your food, you are treated with a song that goes with every order. As many sides as your plate can hold and hot fresh buttered bread makes this meal well worth it.

Five Guys Burgers & Fries

1150 Fry Rd, Houston, TX 77084

This is not your typical burger joint; on a busy afternoon, lines are outside the door, but as soon as you walk in, the smell of grilling meat and Cajun spiced fries will intoxicate your nose and get your taste buds salivating. If you are not in the mood for burgers, they also do Kosher Beef hot dogs. And with the aspect of free toppings, the number of creations is endless.

Los Cucos

5305 Bell Patna, Katy, TX 77494

From the moment you walk into this restaurant, you will be transported to a little cantina, food from which you never really had at most Mexican restaurants. From the start, you get your usual chips and dip, but 5 minutes later, the wait staff will come by and make you some fresh avocado dip, which is to die for. I recommend the fajitas; they have multiple sizes so that nobody will feel like they are eating too much. For dessert, get the flan--a beautiful, airy, milky dessert, to satisfy any palate.

New York Pizzeria

20900 Katy Fwy, Katy, TX 77449

If you can recall your favorite pizza, it is not the toppings or the cheese or sauce you remember, it's the crust and this is where New York Pizzeria stands out. Like any New York pizza, the crust is thin, almost non-existent, and that's just what you get at any New York Pizzeria. If you don't feel like pizza, grab some pasta or some tasty Italian desserts like tiramisu.

Phomai Vietnamese Noodle House

20900 Katy Fwy, Katy, TX 77449

What's sriracha without pho? Pho is a noodle based soup with cuts of either beef or chicken. And if you are not feeling like a noodle soup, try a steamed rice plate or just have fresh spring rolls made to order. With speedy service, you will be back on your feet in no time.
