Road Treats in Bryan/College Station, TX…

2012-03-29 Bryan Texas 055

Since we once resided in this area and have recently returned I thought I would highlight a few of the spots here in Bryan/College Station that might qualify as road treats.

First I would point out that one of my favorite type of  foods is Tex Mex and although my favorite Tex Mex restaurant in Bryan recently closed there are still quite a few good ones to pick from. My favorite one for cheese enchiladas is Casa Rodriguez. Found in the renovated downtown area, the address is 300 North Bryan Avenue  Bryan, TX. Make sure to go on a Wednesday night for the enchilada specials and you can order my favorite”El Memo” enchilada plate for only $5.99. Along with their complimentary hot sauce and chips you just can’t go wrong.

imageNow if it is Bar B Q you are after look no further than C&J’s BBQ. Now I admit I like just about everything on their menu and they feature a daily special that helps one try all the various fares. Three meats stand out in their lineup however, ribs, smoked turkey, and their pork tenderloin.Sharon and my daughter Katie, however, really love the brisket. Get a side of their homemade potato salad, ask for few slices of bread (complimentary) and you will then be ready to enjoy your feast.

There are many other great spots that I will just mention along with what we like to order:

Thai food – Pad Thai at Rosie's Phos at 2001 Texas Ave S # 300, College Station, TX

Burgers – The Death Burger at the Chicken Oil Company at 3600 South College Avenue,
Bryan, TX

Wings –Best wings at Fitzwillies Bar and Grill at 303 University Dr. 77840, College Station, TX (they also have a burger challenge called Willies “Big Ass” Burger – 4lbs of beef with 16 slices of cheese and a lb. of fries – not for the light eater)

Mexican Seafood – Gallitos Fish at Los Cucos. One location in College Station and one in Bryan.

There are many other good eateries in the area but the ones mentioned are our personal all time favorites.


  1. Used to treat myself to wings and a cold beer after working at A&M. Good stuff.

  2. I LOVE BBQ! I'm always in search of the best one ever. After we get back to the States we'll be in Glen Rose, TX long enough to pick up our rig and say hello/goodbye to our daughter... then head over to Livingston for a few days before heading to Maine. Looks like we could swing down to Byran and try out that BBQ place... sure sounds like a plan to me!
