Bavarian Grill Served beside tiny pasta dumplings, the golden-fried Jäger Schnitzel looks even more massive than usual. Rumor has it that the mushroom-topped schnitzel is one of largest in Texas, so it should come as no surprise that it's the most popular dish at Bavarian Grill, an eatery that twice won GermanDeli.com’s designation as the Best German restaurant in America. Such recognition yields lofty expectations, which Bavarian Grill meets with ease thanks to multiple menus brimming with authentic south German cuisine. Guests will find the Jäger Schnitzel on the dinner menu, but 18 other types of schnitzels show up for Schnitzel Fest, a seasonal celebration held once each year. Oktoberfest, on the other hand, seems to be celebrated year round, fueled by a hefty list of German beers. Add in live accordion players and a plate of bratwurst-and-salmon-stuffed mushroom caps, and it’d be easy to imagine yourself transported to Germany, especially if your visit happens to coincide with National Wear Lederhosen Day.

Katy Trail Ice House It's hard to tell what folks love most about Katy Trail Ice House. It could be the patio—a homey, humble stretch of dirt covered in picnic tables, canopied by crisscrossing twinkle lights, and shaded by leafy trees—which was voted the city's best by D Magazine in 2012. Then again, it could be the bar, housed right beside the patio inside of an aluminum-covered barn. There, open to the outdoors thanks to two glass garage doors, customers can order drinks at a 50-foot bar stocked with 50 draft beers––a beer per foot, for those keeping track. Aside from the selection of brews––which include those brewed in the Lone Star state––the drink menu also features vodkas, whiskeys, tequilas, and even an oak rum, all distilled deep in the heart Texas. Of course, there's also the Texas-style BBQ to consider. Brisket, sausage, and ribs earned accolades from The Dallas Morning News, who called the spread "superb.” But the sustenance at Katy Trail Ice House isn't limited to saucy eats: burgers come loaded with jalapenos and jack cheese, mushrooms and avocado, or the restaurant's signature dark beer venison chili, while vegetarians enjoy meat-free sandwiches such as portabella burgers and ALTs (avocado, lettuce, and tomato).
