Truman's fleet of patty-flipping pros grills up 12 varieties of half-pound specialty burger, each of which sports custom ground beef or pork with eclectic and delightful toppings. The Italian Job burger plans a Venetian heist of pepperoni dimes and rich marinara sauce, while the Volcano burger charts a detour to Pompeii with a smothering of habanero barbecue sauce, jalapeños, and melted pepper jack cheese. The Harley with honeyed sauce and Hawaiian Big Kahuna sandwiches sing pork-filled variations on the barbecue theme with sugary aplomb. All burgers perch atop a king-size kaiser bun with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles, and royal velvet finery.

A Houston tradition since 1978, Lopez Mexican Restaurant is a perpetually packed authentic eatery on Wilcrest, near the 59 and Beltway 8. A down-home family vibe is carried throughout the restaurant. But most people are here to eat, opting for true-to-form Mexican food that runs the gamut from sizzling fajitas to Carnes Rancheras and a gourmet Aztec salad, complete with fresh vegetables and a pineapple-cilantro vinaigrette. A newly expanded bar means an increase in foot traffic, with locals looking to splurge on one of their signature drinks, including a habanero margarita. Just don’t try to swing by on Sundays – that’s when the Lopez family takes the day off.

Walk into any of BreWingZ Sports Bar and Grill's 19 locations, and you'll be faced with many decisions. First, of course, is the food: the sports bar's crisp, juicy wings come in more than 25 different sauce flavors from classic suicidal hot to orange ginger. The mozzarella cheese sticks are carved from a cheese brick, breaded, and fried to order. And then there are the salads, sandwiches, burgers, and wraps. The family-friendly restaurant even gives kids an extensive selection with six child-friendly dishes, some of which include the same signature items their parents enjoy. But once you've ordered your food, there are a few more dilemmas: Which of the plentiful beers do you choose? Which game on the many massive HD televisions do you watch? Which one is the fork, again? Luckily, the spot's easygoing atmosphere and bounty of entertainment doesn't quite necessitate speedy decision making.

When one thinks of an ice rink, the next thought is not typically of freshly baked bread, cured meats, and roasted beets with apples and blue cheese. Jambone's Grill Pub might just change that. Adjacent to the rink at the Sugar Land Ice & Sports Center, Jambone's menu of upscale pub food provides welcome respite for ice skaters. Chefs press fresh ground beef or tarragon-turkey burgers stuffed with a choice of cheese between challah buns or surround grilled chicken, salami, and provolone with slices of ciabatta. Jambone's servers pour Wayne Gretzky Estates wine or other libations from the full-service bar on the spacious patio before diners dash back to the rink to watch it not melt.

The Locker Room

The Locker Room is more than a hockey bar: it's a hockey-obsessed bar. Situated nowhere near the Canadian border, the bar nevertheless thrives on a love for hockey teams, Canada, and sports in general. On any given day, bottles of Molson and Labatt await excited crowds visiting for the NHL game of the night. When there's no live hockey, football games playing on the bar's LED TVs keep the fun going while the insatiable scents of poutine and Tim Horton's coffee help you feel the chill of the Great White North. A covered patio gives bargoers another incentive to join in The Locker Room's revelry, and kid-friendly meals and snacks make it a destination to share with the next generation.

Favorably featured on Fox News, Char House Bar and Grille dishes out a menu of meat-laden comfort fare. Launch edible excursions from an onion-ring tower, a skyscraper of deep fried onion rings erected next to a diving pool of spicy chipotle mayo ($8). The Malibu burger, cloaked in sliced avocado and buttermilk ranch, transports noshers to the sunny West Coast ($10), and the open-faced flank-steak sandwich painted with horseradish cream harkens back to a gentler time before overprotective bread smothered its meaty offspring ($10). Meat abstainers can munch the grilled swiss cheese slathered in tomato pineapple chutney ($7) or the roasted artichoke garlic hummus ($8). The New Orleans-style crème brûlée tops the short-but-sweet four-item dessert menu ($5).
