I'm from the Fort Worth area but am starting a project in the Willowbrook area and will most likely be down once a week or so for the next 6-8 months. I'm looking for some good restaurants to check out while I'm here and would love some local recommendations of places we don't have up in DFW. I took my guys to El Tiempo tonight and we all loved it. Thanks in advance for the help!

Redfish Grill is a neat little place in the area. Seafood with what seems like a Thai/Cajun influence (yup, both of those).

Head up to the Vintage. Better restaurant choices. FujiJapan Sushi near Spring Cypress is very good too.

Brix in Vintage Park
Fire Ant Brewing in Tomball

They just opened a Little Woodrows off 249 as well, if you want a bar atmosphere.

Perry's is very good, but as stated is not right at Willowbrook. Also, Perry's is on the higher end regarding price. Pappadeaux is on 1960 is also good. I always like PF Chang's which is near Willowbrook on 249. Watch out for the Willowbrook area though. Had a client lunch at Salt Grass Steakhouse and had my truck window busted out and briefcase and other items stolen out of it.

White suburbia has checked in. Don't forget the Friday lunch special with the $16 pork chop if the mid-level steakhouse prices are too much for you.

Do not leave anything that looks to be of any value within eye site in your vehicle. Guaranteed to get your door jimmyed or a window busted out. Houston (especially the Willowbrook area) is the car break in capital of the world.

The pho there is not that good. Best pho in the area is Pho Dung next to Hong Kong Market on Veterans Memorial.

He's a critic. He doesn't make suggestions, he just criticizes other folks choices.

Live 3 mins from Willowbrook mall. While there is high crime in the area, car break ins are far worse inside 610. I have parked all over parking lots around here with valuables in my car, never once had been broken into.

Best Options for mid tier are
Gyu Kaku (grill your own meat)
Perry's
Gaucho's Du Sol (similar to Fogo de Chao)
WAZA (get the deep fried grouper it's amazeballs)
Pappadeauxs/Pappasitos
Steamboat House

Juicy Crab has great steamed/boiled seafood but overpriced for what you get.


For Asian cuisine solid picks are:
Mint Thai
Panang Thai
Ba Mien Bistro
Jinya Ramen

Country cooking:
Hickory Hollow
Carriage House
Mel's Country Cafe is a drive up to Tomball, but worth it.

Other Notables:
Kabob Corner (decent Mediterranean style)
Cajun Crawfish #1
Soto's Cantina
Tandoorish Indian Cuisine
Yannis Greek Taverna

Drinking spots:
Mo's Pub
District 249
Little Woodrows on 249 just north of District 249
Brewski's
Sam Houston Race Park (if you want to throw some coin at horses)\
Swanny's (driving range and nice outdoor bar)

We have Cajun Crawfish #2 near us. I've never bothered to look up where #1 is but now I know.

Best pho and Vietnamese rice/noodle bowls in Humble/Atascosita/Kingwood. Can't say much about their crawfish but their other Cajun dishes are respectable too. Fried fish and shrimp, poboys etc.

Great pic there.

Should be more worried about getting shot than your car being broken into.

Adriatic is a good spot. If you go that far you could hit Captain Brad's for some crawfish as well.

Boiled seafood there sucks. Just tried it. Fried might be ok.

They used to be located near Randall's on 1960/Champion Forest. Went there twice and their food sucks. Had gumbo and almost chomped down on a screw.
