Good Morning Joyce, excellent job of providing local dining information.

Posted by Dan Edward Phillips, Realtor and Broker/Owner (Dan Edward Phillips) over 8 years ago

Well, I've missed a couple of them --- so I've put them on my list for a personal visit!  Thanks!

Posted by Judith Sinnard, The SMARTePLAN Lady (SMARTePLANS; Houston, Texas) over 8 years ago

At first I thought the burger place sounded good....then Bootsie's, heck they all sound good.  If I come to visit it's going to be a tough choice.  Guess I'll have to stay long enough to try them all.

Posted by Ann Allen Hoover, CDPE SRES ASP e-PRO Realtor - Homes for Sale - AL (RE/MAX Advantage South) over 8 years ago

Hi Dan, I think the small, independent eating spots often get overlooked and they are some of the best places to eat.  So I hope this causes some people to be more aware of them.

Judith, We have several new ones.  Do you live close by?

Ann, Let me know you're coming and we'll meet up.

Posted by Joyce Godwin, Realtor, CRS, RE/MAX Elite Properties (RE/MAX Elite Properties; Serving Cypress, Spring, Tomball, NW Houston) over 8 years ago

What a great job Joyce getting all of this info together.  A great resource!

Posted by Debbie Walsh, Hudson Valley NY Real Estate 845.283-3036 (Shahar Management) over 8 years ago

Hi Joyce - I'm at I-45 and Rayford .. so depending which "end" of Tomball, some are closer than others.

Posted by Judith Sinnard, The SMARTePLAN Lady (SMARTePLANS; Houston, Texas) over 8 years ago

Debra, Thanks Debra.  Hope it helps them be more visible.

Judith, Sometime when you are in the Tomball area, call me and we can meet for lunch.  All of the restaurants listed are pretty much in or close to the center of Tomball.  

Posted by Joyce Godwin, Realtor, CRS, RE/MAX Elite Properties (RE/MAX Elite Properties; Serving Cypress, Spring, Tomball, NW Houston) over 8 years ago

Joyce, You have done a good job with your list.  My parents don't think they can come in to town without going to Mel's.  I often drive by them on my way to Tomball and they are packed all the time.

Posted by Marchel Peterson, Spring TX Real Estate E-Pro (Results Realty) over 8 years ago

Joyce - Sounds Great!

Posted by Judith Sinnard, The SMARTePLAN Lady (SMARTePLANS; Houston, Texas) over 8 years ago

Joyce, You sure have lots of fun places to eat out there.  They sound very quaint.  i'm so sick of chains....

Posted by Belinda Spillman, Colorado Living! (Aspen Lane Real Estate Colorful Colorado) over 8 years ago

Hi Marcel, I was actually "introduced" to Mel's by clients from Spring several years ago.  When they mentioned it, I thought, I live in Tomball and have never heard of it.  They had four boys, so needless to say they loved the large servings at such reasonable prices!  I can see why your parents like it, it is so laid back and you almost always see someone you know.

Judith, Okay - good.

Posted by Joyce Godwin, Realtor, CRS, RE/MAX Elite Properties (RE/MAX Elite Properties; Serving Cypress, Spring, Tomball, NW Houston) over 8 years ago

Wow I'm tempted to stop by and eat my way thru the town !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!*L*

Posted by Michael J. Perry, Lancaster, PA Relo Specialist (KW Elite ) over 8 years ago

Michael, I'm sure they would all be delighted!

Posted by Joyce Godwin, Realtor, CRS, RE/MAX Elite Properties (RE/MAX Elite Properties; Serving Cypress, Spring, Tomball, NW Houston) over 8 years ago

Hi Joyce, now this is caring and taking great care of your community.  Great post!

Posted by Judith Parker, CRS, GRI, CMRS, Charlotte, NC (ProStead Realty) over 8 years ago

Hi Judith, It was fun to put together and I would love to be part of the reason any one of them got more customers -- of course, I'll never know.  

Posted by Joyce Godwin, Realtor, CRS, RE/MAX Elite Properties (RE/MAX Elite Properties; Serving Cypress, Spring, Tomball, NW Houston) over 8 years ago
