Recs for Bryan/College Station
Went to school in CS for 4 years, here are my thoughts:
Breakfast: breakfast tacos at Los Nortenos in historic downtown Bryan
Lunch: Fritella Italian Restaurant, really casual counter service. Try the fritella, it's like a deep fried calzone shaped thing that tastes like a funnel cake (but not sweet and with your choice of filling)
Best BBQ in BCS is Fargo's in north Bryan, but hours can be irregular since it is a very small takeout joint.
Jin's Chinese on Northgate has good lunch specials. Not authentic Chinese, but well executed Americanized Chinese. My favorite dish is the Mongolian beef.
Dinner: Square One in Bryan or Cafe Eccel for reasonable prices and excellent food. Christopher's World Grille if you're looking to splurge.
There are tons of new places that have opened in College Station since I graduated two years ago. From recent visits, there's a wine bar/bistro that is very popular on University Dr in same shopping center as Abuelo's and this massive fountain.
