I don't do. . . Other than this, if a restaurant in the Clear Lake area isn't
listed, there's probably a reason. (Except for Mexican
restaurants -- there are so many, we don't frequent them all.)
Good... (no ball) OK ... We eat at all these places so none are poor.
General Menu - Cafe - Variety
- Seabrook Classic Cafe - NASA, Seabrook - general menu, seafood
-- fried oysters for me and recently their prime rib has been excellent
- Kelley's - League City Main St. across from Popeye's & the
Sonic -- country cooking, large portions. I like their chili dog & burger.
Cheddar's - I list Chedder's because of their Chicken Pot
Pie. Best I've had in 60 years. They make an okay burger and
baby-back ribs too. Good Bloody Mary. Most of their food is good. Typically service is poor & slow.
- El Camino Real @ NASA 1 At Lunch. We quit going at night years
ago because their wait staff were haughty
- Angelo's -Webster, Bay Area Blvd, between Texas 3 and
I45, across from the Out Back Steakhouse -- best tortellini in the area, and
Olive Garden - We quit them for many years because of poor service,
but recently have gone back and service is much improved.
- Good Italian and pizza. Service improved in mid 2013. (haven't
been there in a long time)
Steak - most have seafood
Perry's Grille - Bay Area Blvd @ Texas 3 behind Kinko's
-- declined somewhat in recent years. Their Wednesday and Friday noon
pork chop is usually great and a good deal. Evenings got too pricy for us.
(haven't eaten here at night in a long time, so . . .)
- T-Bone Tom's - in Kemah on Texas 146 near high bridge
-- steaks & barbecue We get their chicken fried steak or ribeye. 146 has become
- Bay Area Meat Market and Smokehouse - 537 Kirby, Seabrook --
Picnic tables, absolutely no
atmosphere, purely functional. Super steaks, super cheeeap. Good
burgers. Good pulled pork sandwich. Good Chicken Fried Steak.
Hobby Hilton - Tuesday Night Prime Rib Buffet -- yum-yum (haven't been
in a several years and I think their price has gone way up)
Samurai Japanese Steak & Sushi House - 133 W
Bay Area Blvd, Webster. We get a steak at the hibachi, but people rave
about their sushi.
- Red River Barbeque -- League City on Main near Egret Bay Blvd.
- Tony's Barbecue -- Saturn @ Gemini in Clear Lake City. Best
BBQ in the Clear Lake area
-- 3613 E. Broadway in Pearland. I
think it's the best BBQ I've ever eaten. Long line/wait.
Miller's Cafe - on Space Center Blvd., off Bay Area Blvd
(old time greasy spoon burgers -- I like 'um)
Perry's Market and Grill -- 614 S. Friendswood Dr. They have
great dishes other than burgers but that's what I eat there most regularly.
Stomps Burgers --
Off Highway 146 in Baycliff. They have the same burgers (with different
names) and onion rings the old Tookies did. Remember the Stomps Icehouse
Special at Tookies.
- Pappasito's - I-45 northbound feeder between NASA 1 & Bay Area Blvd.
The "Superior" is more than enough for the two of us.
- Mom Alone -- NASA One, across from the three tall (Power's) office
buildings. We did Sunday breakfast here for a couple of years
- Los Ramirez -- On El Camino Real, beside the Coliseum Restaurant
across from Hancock's fabric.
- Alamo Tamales
-- Texas 3, near Clear Lake City Blvd. Their tamales are wonderful -- be
sure to get the large ones, the small ones are just standard machine made
tamales. This is a takeout place.
- Chuy's -- I'm
sure most of their dishes are good but their chile relleno with Deluxe
Tomatillo sauce is so good I've never had anything else. (and I don't
generally care for chile relleno)
- Skipper's - Kemah FM 2094 (you may think it's on 518 but it's not)
about a mile from Hwy146
Mamacita's - Mamacita's Tex-Mex breakfast (fried eggs over enchiladas)
or Megas most Sundays.
Bon Appetit Cafe - In Nassau Bay. Good breakfast. I also like their breakfast
croissant and French Dip sandwiches. [I know, French Dip isn't breakfast]
- Taco Cabana -Webster, Bay Area Blvd between Texas 3 and I45.
Cheeeep and OK. I like their ground beef Cabana Bowl.
- Denny's - Bay Area Blvd,
not because it's particularly good but because it's OK and convenient for us.
Ashley's Donuts -- Bay Area Blvd @ Thor.
Their sausage croissants, donuts and apple fritters are good. They also have a great
breakfast burrito they call a taco. You must order it by 11am.
McDonald's - Breakfast Biscuit & senior coffee only
(they have a good deal on senior coffee)
- Jack-in-the-Box - I
only get their Loaded Breakfast Sandwich or Egg Rolls -- their egg rolls are the best around
- Jason's Deli - in
Webster, Bay Area Blvd, between Texas 3 and I45, beside Bradleys. They
have a good salad bar. Their
one trip salad bar with half a sandwich is the best deal there.
- Potbelly --
in Webster, NE corner of Bay Area Blvd. and I-45, near
TGI Friday's. We get their meatball sandwich, thin cut.
Lenny's Sub Shop -- Good sub sandwiches,
best Philly Cheesesteak around here. Paying is slow and confused.
Corner of Bay Area & Texas Ave. Cattycornered from Taco Cabana. Excellent burritos are
whatever they're called.
Indian (I love Indian food)
- Mogul --
They've moved to the corner of Bay Area Blvd
& Buccaneer (Near Spec's Liquor). Their every day
noon buffet is excellent. Menu dishes are also excellent, but full
service can be slow.
Cuisine of India - My wife likes this one better than the others
- No atmosphere. If it wasn't so far away their buffet might become my lunch favorite. It's
on Dixie Farm Road between Ellington and 45.
- Hunan Star
- Across the street from Armand Bayou shopping center, behind CVS pharmacy.
May be the best Chinese restaurant in the area
- Clear Lake Hunan Restaurant --
2323 Clear Lake City Blvd. In the shopping center at Space Center. Probably my current favorite
just because they make General Tso's Chicken the way I like it. Service can be slow. The wife likes 888 Bistro. I can't
find anything there I like.
- Nobi Public House -
I had to put them somewhere. It's Vietnamese Fusion & beer & beer &
beer. I get the pork fried rice. Or the stir fry noodles with pork. <whistling>9900 bottles of beer
on the wall, 9900 bottles of beer . .
- Popeye's - Bay Area Blvd. in Armand Bayou shopping center
beside Valero gas station. We do take-out about every 6 weeks.
(hard to figure out how to order)
- Dan's Pizza
-- Take out or delivery. I take out, deliveries may be cold and soggy.
- Texas Pizza
-- Take out or delivery. Haven't done them recently. Used to
switch off with Pomadoras
- Pomodoras --
1303 NASA Pkwy. Everything is good, but
service was so terrible we've quit going, except for take out pizza.
- Angelo's -Webster, Bay Area Blvd, between Texas 3 and
I45, across from the Out Back Steakhouse -- Everything's good. We do dine in pizza, spaghetti and
meat sauce, baked ziti, chicken parmesan or tortellini. They have the best tortellini in
Ashley's Donuts -- Bay Area
Blvd @ Thor. I like their jalapeņo crescent
roll sausage croissants, glazed old fashioned donuts and apple fritters.
Other - None right now
