I am looking for someplace to eat with kids.
I travel from Dallas to Houston 5-6 times a year and meet up with the inlaws for lunch/brunch on a Saturday or Sunday. We usualy meet somewhere between Sugarland and Garden Oaks. (big area, I know) The past few times we have been out to eat it has not been satisfying. We all have kids (5 kids under 8 years old) and most places the service has been terrible, food not tasty, or just too crowded to comfortably accomodate a large party.
In the past we have been to BabaYega, Lupe Tortilla, Hobbit Cafe, Barnaby's, Kim ??? (dim sum place on 59, I can't remember the same maybe KImSan or something like that) and a few others. I don't really care for chain restaurants and something family owned is always nice but not required.
I have taken it upon myself to choose the next dining destination because I just cant handle another miserable experience. So where can I find good food for a big family? Cost is not a factor. Fancy food not required.
***By the way, I am a 6-foot male about 200lbs and I eat all kinds of food, but Hobbit Cafe serves an obscene amount of food (especially avacado on sandwiches). I was saddened by the obnoxious waste of food. Very few people (if anyone) wants to, or can eat the ridiculous amount of avacado they serve on their sandwiches. It just makes a mess. Of course it can be boxed up and taken home, but really? Who needs to be served this much food at a single meal? I would have paid more to be served less. Yes, I know the sandwiches can be ordered in a "slim" or "regular" size, or shared, but still it is unnecessary.***end rant.
