  1. Do you know more or less what part of town you will be in? And are you looking for fine dining or something more basic?

      Mostly basic fare. Will be near Pearland, and in Houston sightseeing. Will be there for a month. Thx.

    2. What kinds of food are you interested in finding?

      1. I'm assuming BBQ is a specialty for that area. Looking for Vietnamese, BBQ, healthy food,,,actually I love it all. Open to anything good. Thx.

        1. I am not familiar with Pearland, but here are some of my Houston favorites. Go to www.b4-u-eat.com for reviews and locations.
          BBQ- Goode Company, William's Smoke House
          Vietnamese - Kim Son this is Viet/Chinese, the one on the Southwest Frwy has good dim sum on weekends. There are many good Pho places my favorite is Pho Saigon.
          Chinese - Fung's Kitchen, also has very good dim sum.
          Seafood - Goode Company Seafood, must get Campechana
          Tampico Seafood on Airline, must get Red Snapper a la plancha
          Cafe Red Onion seafod y mas- cheviches frescos
          Capt'n benny's- oysters
          Magnolia bar and grill - Cajun seafood
          Latin fusion - Churasscos, Americas, Cafe Red Onion
          Tex-Mex - Chuy's, El Tiempo, Escalantes, Papasitos
          Berryhill's for Baja Fish Tacos
          If your downtown siteseeing go to Spec's liquor Warehouse. Much more than a liquor store this place is 80,000 square feet of food, beer and wine.

          1. JJC - thank you so much; can't wait to start checking these out next week.
