Oxford Street Restaurant and Pub: Oxford Street - You can make reservations!
This is a good restaurant with excellent food, but the prices are a little more expensive than average. The great thing about this restaurant is that you can make reservations... we had problems finding places that took reservations, but we really needed this on the night of graduation at Texas A&M when EVERYONE is going out to dinner!
Freebirds: World Famous Burritos
Pick your burrito size and type of tortilla, choose your beans, rice and/or meat, then load up on the veggies as your personal burrito assembler walks you through the chaos. The end product is an ample baby-leg of a burrito, complete with one of Freebird's tasty sauces and wrapped in foil. The crowds will attest to the beauty of the experience.
Be sure you're hungry if you order any monster-size burrito--these babies are measured in pounds. You'll need more than 30 minutes before you can swim if you order the Super Monster: It weighs 2 3/4 pounds.
Favorite Dish: Monster, chicken, black beans, extra hot sauce and BBQ sauce.
T Jin China Diner
This was easy to get to, plenty of parking and not too crowded. I love the opening shot, it's evening time, sun is just setting, you are entering the restaurant and feeling hungy, with the promise of being well fed...... what more could you ask for?
I don't generally like American food, I find it to be bland in taste. Great effort is made to make it look good, which is something, but burger and fries definitely turn me off.
Good selection in this menu, with healthy options. The most expensive was $8.50, cheapest $6.50, so unlikely to break the bank.
It also has the useful facility on the website to pre-order your food, so that it is ready for you to take away. There are two other restaurants in this chain in Texas.
Favorite Dish: Prawns with mushrooms and snap peas. Tasty yet not too many calories!
Great Wall: Decent Chinese Buffet
The Great Wall is about what you expect from a Chinese Buffet. You get a wide selection of items but how fresh the items are depends on the time of day you visit. The busier they are the more often the food gets refreshed. Not bad if you understand that.
Favorite Dish: Any seafood dish.

Dixie Chicken: Good Place for a Burger and a Beer
Dixie Chicken is a restaurant that also is a bar with pool tables and music. The menu tends toward sandwiches, burgers and chicken along with bar type snacks, and a nice cold beer (or more). Hours are 10 AM to 2 AM daily with a happy hour from 4 PM to 8 PM Sunday through Thursday.
Favorite Dish: Good Chicken Strips

Fish Daddy's Grill House: Great Seafood
$12 as of March 2013. Fish Daddy's has a nice atmosphere with dark wood, and a nice aquarium. They serve a variety of seafood and some other dishes. The menu was varied enough that it took me a while to decide. I finally opted for Blackened Catfish with red beans and rice and buttered corn. The portion for the fish was plentiful and the preparation was great. Service was exceptional too, and my waiter Bill was professional and friendly. Hours are: 11 AM to 10 PM Monday through Thursday; 11 AM to 11 PM Friday through Saturday; and 11 AM to 10 PM Sunday.
I definitely recommend this for all seafood fans.

Wings 'n More: the best buffalo wings
Best wings I've ever eaten. You can buy various degrees of heat plus additional wet (soaked in hot sauce). Delicious vinegar/cayenne hot sauce. Great fries, too. Plus standard hamburger/sandwich menu.
Favorite Dish: Order of 16 wings, extra hot, wet, garlic. Out of this world.
Cafe Eccell: Cafe Eccell
Being from San Diego and new to Texas in general, I have found a haven in Cafe Eccell. The food is reminiscent of California Cuisine and, by all standards, excellent! They have great bread and fabulous desserts.
Favorite Dish: Seared Salmon Steak rosemary mashers, sundried tomato relish, and cilantro buerre blanc 15.25
Strawberry Tart 5.25
Chocolate lined almond lace cookie shell filled with pastry cream and topped with fresh strawberries and an apricot glaze
La Bodega: La Bodega
Classy, inexpensive Baja-style Mexican food. This place is owned by the same gentleman as Cafe Eccell.
Favorite Dish: I really like their quesadillas with chicken or steak. My boyfriend always gets fish tacos. The best fish tacos we've ever had are at Fins in San Diego, but these are a pretty close second.
Cafe Eccell: Awful food, horrible service
They give "special" treatment to "foreigners/ people of different colors/races/ethnicity". Apparently, they make special food for these people and treat them in the most derogatory manner. I would not recommend it to anyone who is even 1/12th non-white. Right from their drinks, appetizers, entrees and dessert, everything was awful. Their so-famous salmon and other sea-food "delicacies" that we ordered, tasted like it was served after being kept out of freeze for ages!!! Their most expensive appetizer, served in a martini glass was horrible, it tasted like dog-food. Their baked potatoes were most definitely made a day before and served to us!! They wouldn't even care to refill our drinks. When asked for an ice-tea refill, all we got was a glass full of ice-cubes!!! The customer service and waitressing is like that of a jailor towards a prisoner! Even if all the eating places in Texas shut down, we are never going there!!!!!
Favorite Dish: Never ever go there no matter what!!!
Margarita Rocks: This Place Has it All
This place has it all, great food, great atmosphere, drink specials and great prices. There is a large selection of interesting takes on American food to go with your $1 well drinks or cold beers. The place is almost always full and you can kick back and relax while watching the Aggies on one of the many TVs, or you can just hang out with friends on the porch.
Favorite Dish: You have to try the chicken fajita pizza and the salsa is one of the best around.
Mi Cocina II: Mi Cocina II
This was one of my favorite restaurants in college station, you could go out and get a good size meal and a couple of beers for under $10. Food is great and the service is excellent. Usually full, but not often overcrowded.
Favorite Dish: Try anything.
Los Nortenos: Los Nortenos
This old family run establishment, in downtown Bryan, has the best salsa I have ever had. Also the fajitas are not only excellent, but are served in portions such that 2 orders could feed 4 or 5 people. To make it even better, the alcohol policy is BYOB (bring your own beer). Definitely on the list of restaurants in the area you should go to.
Zapatos Cantina: Trashcan Lid Nachos
This place is one of the best restaurants/bars in town. Food is excellent and reasonably priced and it is hard to beat the drink specials. Service is quick and friendly. There are multiple TVs for watching sports, porch area for dining doubles as a stage for live music featuring local bands. This place always draws a crowd. Stop by for a drink and some nachos and stay for the music.
Favorite Dish: You have to try the trashcan lid nachos (feeds 4) these nachos are covered in layers of grilled beef and/or chicken, refried beans, queso, pico de gallo, sour cream and guacamole. Best nachos I've ever had.
Schlotzsky's: My Favorite Sandwich
Schlotzsky’s is one of my very favorite places to eat. It’s a sandwich shop that you can take out or eat in the shop with plenty of tables always available. It’s a bit pricier ($6-7 for a sandwich) than most other sandwich shops but definitely worth it.
It's a place where you order at the counter, then wait for your food and pick it up when they call your number. It's very casual and I'm sure you'll love the food!
Open daily 10am-10pm
Includes Free WIFI and has a Cinnabon Express with it for dessert
Favorite Dish: The highlight is the sandwiches. They make it with thick sourdough bread and very thinly sliced meat. Then they sprinkle cheese (the best is a mixture of cheddar and mozzarella) on one piece of bread and run it through an oven conveyor belt. Therefore the sandwich is warm and very tasty. The Original is their signature sandwich and comes with: “Home of The Original® Sandwich. Lean smoked ham, Genoa and cotto salamis, and melted cheddar, mozzarella, and parmesan cheeses layered with black olives, red onion, lettuce, tomato, mustard and our signature dressing on toasted Sourdough bread.” (From the website.)
Their sandwiches are quite large. I’ve never ordered a large, the mediums are quite enough when you’re at your hungriest.
Their original chips are delicious! Their pizzas are as well. The cheese and pizza is definitely worth trying, also cooked on a sourdough. The bbq chicken looks just as good but it’s hard not to get my favorite sandwich, the turkey and cheese.
