Daily Donuts is one of those routine stops en route to work or school. It's pleasantly as no frills as breakfast joints get--no hassle, the line moves quickly, and both food and drink are always hot. For merely a couple bucks and a couple minutes, start your day off with a cup of steaming gourmet joe to go, and gooey sweet donuts. Their chocolate iced are wonderful. Grab a dozen for your morning meeting or class. They also do your standard Texas Kolaches--can't go wrong with either Sausage and Cheese or Ham and Cheese. Either makes ideal eating-in-morning-traffic food. -Adam Rosen
Any visit to Texas has to include a meal at a barbecue joint. Valley Ranch Grill & Barbeque promises you some really tasty items at reasonable prices. If you are not interested in a juicy plate of barbecued beef, pork, turkey or sausage, try one of the hefty burgers. All the standard trimmings are available with either. Fajitas add additional spice to the menu. Order beef, chicken or shrimp, or a combination of any of the above.
Experience an Italian meal at its best, here at Mezzanotte Ristorante. Besides Italian, the restaurant also serves tapas, which means lots of variety on your table!

But before that some dishes for you to try out are the Carpaccio di Manzo, Baby Lamb Chops al Pistacchio and the Lobster Ravioli.
The suburbs in general are not exactly known for their exquisite food originality. But Sierra Madre Taco Company is trying to change that one taco at a time. When you find yourself up north in Houston, stop by the back corner of this beautiful strip center at Louetta and N Eldridge Pkwy for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Get an assortment of fresh hot tacos for less than a couple bucks each. Whether you prefer fajita meat, or the always lovely Al Pastor, put on your own fixins' (like chopped onions or salsa) as you wish from their taco toppings bar. Even stop in as a reward for fighting that North Houston traffic. -Adam Rosen
