Jupiter Pizza & Waffles Co.
16135 City Walk
Sugar Land, TX 77479

Southern comfort, crispy chicken and rich waffles is what diners can look forward to at Jupiter. Sweet and savory Belgian waffles dominate half the menu of this local eatery, with toppings that include: prosciutto, eggs, pulled pork, Oreo crumbles and Nutella. Not in the mood for waffles? Why not try some of Jupiter's one-of-a-kind pizzas, like the Japaneiros pizza which takes its namesake from a local sister restaurant. This "you'll want to eat every single bite" pizza is topped with tomato sauce, mozzarella, fontina cheese, red bell peppers, free-range chimichurri chicken, sweet plantains, cilantro and basil.

Carmelo's Mexican Grill
4888 Hwy 90A
Sugar Land, TX 77478

If you're looking for great Tex-Mex, look no further than Carmelo's Mexican Grill. Diners are treated with complimentary homemade chips and salsa once seated. Bite into everything that is good and tender when you order the Fajitas Monterrey. Words cannot express the flavor that fills your mouth when the taste of tender beef interplays with crisp poblano peppers, bacon and melted, creamy cheese.

Sweetwater Seafood
16525 Lexington Blvd
Suite 160
Sugar Land, TX 77479

What do you get when you take angel hair pasta mixed into a creamy garlic sauce and served on top of a perfectly cooked lobster?....seafood heaven. Arguably the most raved about dish by visitors, the lobster pasta completes any visit to Sweetwater Seafood.

Pho Ben
3613 Hwy 6 S
Sugar Land, TX 77478

There's nothing better on a cold day than a nice warm bowl of pho. Actually, since cold weather is typically hard to find in Sugar Land, pho is great to have year-round. This Vietnamese comfort dish has found a home in Sugar Land and in our bellies. Try the Phờ Tái Nạm Gãu (No. 20) on your next (or first) visit to Pho Ben. It's a beef noodle soup with eye of round steak, well-done flank and fatty brisket.

Oba Japanese Cuisine

Clean, fresh taste and a buttery, melt-in-your-mouth texture describes Oba Japanese Cuisine's Chirashi Bowl to a T. With succulent pieces of salmon, mackerel and white tuna in the mix, what's not to love?
