Astronaut cooks have made numerous attempts to wrangle hamburgers into space-ready meals, from dehydrated-pickle disks to vacuum-sealed burger bottles. Enjoy what our starry-eyed brethren never can with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of American fare at The Terrace Cafe in Kemah.
The Terrace Cafe's culinary craftspeople whip up delectable dishes that appear on a menu of contemporary American fare in an atmosphere geared toward the entire family. Coronate a meal with friends by noshing on a Super Nachos appetizer—a plate of tortilla triangles draped in Texas flavors, including cheese, chili, jalapenos, and onions ($13.95). The double-meat, bacon-swiss burger ($10.95) quells carnivorous cravings, and the bacon-swiss-chicken melt ($11.95) reminds taste buds how much owners care for them. Feast on the Shrimp Artery Clogger ($13.95) to delight in Jacques Cousteau's greatest gift to humanity, deep-fried shrimp.
The Terrace Cafe employs a stringent no-cussing policy and has given the heave-ho to more than 300 dirty-mouthed diners. Parents can bring pooches and lounge on the expansive outdoor balcony while tykes busy themselves by shooting a round of darts or hustling city slickers in games of cutthroat billiards. Though The Terrace Cafe transforms into a full-service sports bar after 11 p.m., the kitchen remains serviceable, enabling late-night diners to counteract the hunger-instilling effects of the moon.
