It will be no big surprise to Tomball locals that Mel’s Country Cafe made #3 in a list of 10 Small Town Restaurants in Texas You Need to Try. The list, which was compiled by Wide Open Country, features a broad array of restaurants including breakfast cafes, Italian eateries, burger joints, and event a tea room.
From Wide Open Country:
Finding good food in the large cities of the Lone Star State is easy. Any time a new hot restaurant opens in Austin or Dallas it’s covered by the local news and then by statewide media. Even if you don’t catch the grand openings, you can still find good eateries. All you have to do is go to Yelp to see what the locals like in any of the larger cities all across Texas.
In small towns, though, it’s not as easy. Some places are incredible, some are so-so, and some are not great but continue to survive just because they’ve always been there. A surefire way to find out a great place to eat is to ask the locals. So we consulted locals from around the state to find some of the best small town restaurants in Texas.
