There are lots of restaurants in this area....though mostly chains.

Lyndons Pit BBQ on Hollister, south of 290, just around the bend.

North of 290 there are lots of chain restaurants, but Logan's Roadhouse is really good.

Pappadeaux (seafood), Red Lobster and TGIF are also located here.

I can recommend 2 top notch local restaurants in the immediate area.

1 Cafe Red Onion, 12440 Northwest Freeway (aka Highway 290), Houston 77092, 713-957-0957 (Central American, Have built up a good following with multiple locations, This is the only one I can testify about)

2 Pho Dalat, 7758 West Tidwell Road, Houston 77040, 713-690-7508 (Higher end Vietnamese, wide selection, good service, lunch is popular with the business set in this area, A bit hard to find because it is set back in a shopping center, but there is a KFC outlet at the front of the shopping center).

I too would suggest Cafe Red Onion and the seafood one across the street cannot think of the name right now. Brenner's is another option for steaks. It was a really good one of a kind but was purchased by the Landry chain (after the Brenners' passed away). The menu (and receipe) however is supposed to have remained the same. You will find a lot of opposition to any of the Landry's restaurant (and for good reason), but it is a great location and setting.

If you don't mind a little drive go to china town (Bellaire and Beltway 8) and pretty much any of those have great food.

Another vote for Cafe Red Onion - very good food and little more exotic than a lot of the chains in the area.

Kingwood & Volcano, just back and wanted to thank you two for steering us in the right direction. We had a fabulous meal last night at Cafe Red Onion and a wonderful lunch today at Pho Dalat.

I'm always amazing at the hundreds of chain restaurants it seems in this area..if you have more local recommendations that you love, keep them coming. We're coming back later this month!!

Louisiana, glad you liked Red Onion. Their food is great. I think there's a Chuy's out that way. Have you ever been there? It's a chain, but fun with good Mexican food and margaritas. If you like BBQ, Demeris and Pappas are both good.
