If you're looking for the ambiance of a countryside cafe in France, this ain't the place. (unless said French cafe is next to the TGLV train line!) What Mel's offers is great tasting home-style food in a 100% casual atmosphere. Had excellent battered, fried catfish, green beans and fried okra. Definitely will return!

My friend and I always go here after a morning of shopping in Tomball. We order the chicken salad with tortilla soup. It is all very good. And of course, we get a slice of pie for dessert. We always get the Yum Yum pie. I have no idea what's in it but its amazing!!

Has potential, but overall it is hit and miss. The Turkey BALT had wonderful flavors, but the bread was 2" thick on both sides making it impossible to eat. Plus they had used some sort of oil/butter on the bread making it so greasy that you have to wipe your hands every time you pick it up. My son had the biscuits and gravy - again good potential with less than excellent execution. The gravy was rich, flavorful and creamy, but the biscuits were hard, dry and crunchy (even after being drenched in gravy). Iced teas are $4 each in a small plastic cup with no refills. The only bright spot was the coffee cake. It was fresh, the pastry was soft and it was interesting in that one side has a cinnamon crumb mixture and the other side was a cream cheese. Nice combination of flavors and a tender crumb. Overall, I'd give it another shot because with a few changes, it really could be a stellar restaurant.

I took 3 business clients to dinner at Gianni’s this week and we all agreed the atmosphere was very nice, the service was very attentive, the menu was broad, and the food was excellent. Having traveled to Italy many times on business I know authenticity and this place is the real deal. We sat at the bar while waiting for others to arrive and the bar tender was very friendly and accommodating.

Tejas Chocolate Craftory started as a chocolate making business and then expanded to offer barbecue for lunch Tuesday - Saturday. We offer authentic Texas style barbecue slowed smoked over post oak wood. Also offered is a selection of house made chocolate bars and chocolate truffles, locally brewed craft beers and coffee.
I have been here several times now and simply cannot convey how delicious the food is at this place. It is so good, there is often a long line waiting to get in. I waited 1.5 hours for this delicious rib and it was worth every minute of the wait. Several in our party complained about waiting but once they tasted the food, agreed it was worth the wait.
I have been Later in the afternoon when the line is short or gone, but be advised... if you come late, the best items will be sold out. I’ve noticed the “burnt ends” are often on the sold out sign in the afternoon.
I think I’ve tried all of the entrees except the pork belly and I will say they were all delicious! The sides are great too. I recommend the carrot soufflé.

Baja fresh Mexican Food served with handcrafted Margaritas and cocktails in fun and friendly environment. Patio dining, Live Music seasonally, Sunday Brunch, Banquet Facilities.
This is the best Mexican Food in the Tomball/Magnolia area! It’s delicious!
The chili relleno was the best I’ve had in Texas. The Fajitas were delicious, as were the chips & salsa and guacamole.
This is California style Mexican Food, not really the TexMex style you normally find in this area.
The margaritas are also great!

First time here. Everyone enjoyed their meal and adult beverages. The Strawberry Kiss was a real treat. We all also enjoyed Kyle’s Fried Pickles. They were sliced paper thin. The Chicken & Sausage Gumbo that was being heavily promoted was good, but needed help to spice it up. I had the sirloin, hubby had the Philly Cheese Steak and our companions had Chicken Fried Steak and Chicken Fried Chicken.
But what really made the evening great was the waitstaff. We ate in the dining room and later moved to the bar, so we wound up with two different servers. Both were outstanding. They did a great job while it was super busy. They were charming and funny. Really made the meal and bar experience just what you would want in this type of establishment. We will be back.

Its refreshing to see some places just keeping it simple. With the emergence of all these trendy ice cream places, its nice to be able to stop in and get a few scoops served in a cone. The place has the cool retro vibe and holds on to its heritage. Ice cream is good, they also serve some sandwiches and hot dogs. The family loves to go here for afternoon ice cream breaks. Try the milk shakes as well, you want be disappointed.

Ordered Locatelli's for a pizza party we had at our hotel. We ordered several of their different specialty pizza's, plus the garden and Caesar salads. Everyone was very pleased with the food. So much better than the typical pizza food chain's. I will definitely go back to Locatelli's when I'm in the area again!!!
