With 12 flavors in its blended arsenal, Smoothie Depot's staff blends together fresh fruit to whip up zesty strawfuls of smoothies, allowing customers to select up to three flavors for an all-natural libation.

Adorned with television and comfy couches, Smoothie Depot’s lounge offers a relaxing place for customers to sip on their nutritional nectars.
Madres Restaurant's new location matches the charm of the original Friendswood eatery, dishing out the same elegant takes on lime-marinated ceviche, sizzling fajitas, and sauce-slathered enchiladas. After finishing off the last bacon-wrapped shrimp brochette, patrons can request that a chef wrap bacon around other Madres offerings, such as buffalo wings or glasses of red wine.
The decadent desserts served at The Cakelicious Bakery—coming up on its fifth anniversary—are always crafted in small batches to ensure optimum freshness. Pastry chefs whip up cupcakes in regular and gluten-free varieties, topping carrot, coconut, and Italian cream cakes with icings accented with everything from caramel to passion fruit. But their confections—which also include cakeballs and petit fours—branch out with more daring ingredients as well, such as champagne, rum, and pistachio. Patrons can combine any of those flavors, fillings, and frostings to create their own custom cake, perfect for celebrating any birthday or Tuesday.
Above all else, comfort food should taste familiar. Taqueria Taco-Riendo seems to embrace this philosophy wholeheartedly, filling the menu with faithful recreations of Mexican cuisine's best-known staples. However, familiarity doesn't make the flavors of chorizo, cilantro, and flour and corn tortillas any less hearty or more likely to share secrets. These ingredients appear throughout the menu, from tacos and tortas to fajitas and quesadillas. The taqueria presents diners with a selection of horchata, lemonade, and other drinks with which to wash down meals.
