Who doesn’t love a good happy hour? And Bryan-College station has plenty. Try these five on for size.

Atami Steak and Sushi

Considered not just the best hibachi in the area, but also the best happy hour in Aggieland.  Visit Monday through Thursday from 5-7 p.m. for $1.50 longnecks and discounted menu items. And if the chef isn’t Japanese, so what, the food gets top marks from pretty much everyone who’s ever eaten here.

Grub Burger Bar

It’s not just a great patio and great burger at Grub. They also have a terrific (and quite popular) happy hour, every day from 3-6 p.m. Grab $3 well drinks, domestics, and half- order cheese fries, or $4 craft pints, margaritas, wines, and half-order Ahi Tuna appetizers. And for $5, there are signature drinks,…

There’s something about food trucks that makes grabbing a bite kind of like a scavenger hunt. And since Bryan-College Station is a college area, food trucks are abundant and delicious. These five food trucks are worth the trip around Aggieland, for sure.

Usually parked on the A&M campus, Chef Tai’s has garnered the attention (and praise) of the Food Network for its off-beat blend of international cuisines. Where else can you choose from barbecued pulled pork sandwiches and tofu Florentine?



Not a breakfast truck, but rather an unending exercise in excellent eats in the…

1. Pebble Creek
