Dog-approved review: "If you like dogs, this is your place. Dog friendly patio, dog paw prints and pictures everywhere and they even have a menu just for the dogs! If you don't like dogs, shame on you and I suppose you could sit inside. The menu is super diverse; I'll need several visits to try everything I want. The food is really good…Service was friendly and personable." - Chris Y.

Dog-approved review: "Great place. Great food. Great service. Superb vegetarian options. First off they don't just allow dogs on the patio, they have a water bowl which they specifically refill for every new customer that comes in. The guy who brought us the food also brought out a couple of chicken treats for the pups. You treat our pups that well and you easily win us over. Second the food is delicious…Great option period." - David Z.

4. Flying Saucer

Dog-approved review: "If you love beer and beer related food this place is your Mecca. It's such a great place to just sit and hang out with your friends and grab a quick bite to eat and a few beers…Oh! and if you are a dog lover --- you can have your dog out on the patio/open area as long as they're pretty chill. We bring our pug out for lunches on the weekends. One of my favorite places in Sugar Land Town Center!" - Jacqueline L.
