Texas Roadhouse 20840 Katy Fwy, Katy 281-829-2400

Fair warning: the homemade hot rolls and cinnamon butter are absolutely, 100% addictive. But resist the urge to eat more than two baskets, because everything on the menu is downright delicious. From their "Fall-off-the-bone ribs" to the massive steak selection and classic country sides like loaded mashed potatoes and fried okra, the combinations for a heart country meal are endless.

Borders is famous for their fajitas and for adding a creative kick to tradition American dishes and Tex Mex favorites. We recommend the beer battered onion rings and the Jose Burger.

Snappy's Cafe & Grill

5803 US Hwy. 90

Snappy's is best known for their rib-sticking and delicious breakfast specials, fresh coffee, and relaxed atmosphere, but their lunch menu and daily lunch specials are great too. One of the local favorites is the grilled pork chop accompanied by three sides and Texas Toast or a roll.

Cracker Barrel

18151 Katy Fwy.

The breakfast lunch and dinner chain is a southern daydream with a charming country store and candy shop to browse while you wait for a table, and some of the best comfort food you'll ever eat. Must-try's are the Country Fried Steak with cream gravy or the Chicken Pot Pie. Wash it down with a sweet iced tea, and you'll fit right in.
