4 Family-Friendly Restaurants in Bryan-College Station, Texas
Traveling with kids can be challenging, and traveling with hungry kids kicks that challenge up a notch! Thankfully my guys like to eat a variety of foods which makes meal planning on vacation a little easier. When we are on the road, we utilize online recommendations, but we primarily rely on the locals and try out their favorites. What is the saying? When in Rome. Here, in no particular order, are our four favorite restaurants in Bryan-College Station.
Best Restaurants in Bryan-College Station, TX for Kids
Papa Perez is a family-owned restaurant and a local favorite in Downtown Bryan. Their Fried Avocado is amazing. If you are looking for a little bit of everything, try their Papa Fiesta Platters. You will not be disappointed!
Willie’s Grill & Ice House
Some of you may already know of Willie’s as they are a chain restaurant. They are always a great option as the food is amazing. (The fried chicken sandwich is one of our favorites.) The restaurant also has a fantastic sand play area outside for the kids. Willie’s is the perfect place to spend a balmy Texas night.
Freebirds World Burrito
If you truly want an amazing burrito packed to the brim with yummy, fresh ingredients, Freebirds World Burrito is your place! This build-your-own burrito restaurant is a favorite among families and college students alike. Make sure to check out all of the aluminum foil art folks have made during their visits.
Chicken Oil Company
If you have never experienced Tijuana Fries, run, don’t walk to the Chicken Oil Company! This plate of deliciousness is crispy fries covered with melted cheese that you can dip into ranch dressing. Pure heaven. The Snuffy Special, which is a burger, fries and soft drink, is a must for our family too. The relaxed atmosphere is a great place to unwind after a full day of play in Aggieland.
Of course, there are many more restaurants in Bryan-College Station to choose from. Do what we do and stop and ask a local where they like to eat. You never know what hidden treasure you might discover.
And, if you’re looking for a convenient place to stay when dropping off a student or just visiting the Bryan-College Station area, consider Hilton College Station & Conference Center or any of the other Hilton hotels close by.
