Texans BBQ & Catering 
12097 FM 830
Delicious food, huge portions, at a decent price by some seriously hard-working folks, on wood-burning BBQ pits. Only open three days a week, the line tells all! Worth the wait to get in, but there’s also a drive-through. Basic BBQ joint menu with minimal options, but what is done is done right! The baked potato casserole seems to steal the spotlight. However, all the wood-smoked meats are tasty, tender, and tantalizing to the taste buds.  

The Hidden Gem Diner
12930 FM 830 Rd. 
Have you found The Hidden Gem Diner? It is the last stop on FM 830/Cude Cemetery Road, before the public boat ramp. Located in the corner of Lake Conroe Food Mart/Texaco. Don’t be fooled by the location though. Real food, real people, real fun! It has fantastic, made-from-scratch daily specials which currently feature Chicken a La King, beef stroganoff, smothered pork chops, beef tips and rice, and chicken and dumplings. The regular menu features a full breakfast menu, burgers, sandwiches, baskets, and blue-plate specials.

Go check them out and support a local up-and-coming mom ’n’ pop shop.  

San Miguel de Allende Bar and Grill
17156 FM 1097
San Miguel is a fantastic, off-the-beaten-path Tex-Mex restaurant. It is owned by the Montoya family and managed by Alondra, who is super knowledgeable. They have fantastic service for favorites like fajitas, tacos, chalupas, enchiladas and a kids' menu. Another fun feature – it is happy hour there for seven days a week, from 11:00 am-6:00 pm. Caution though – they offer a 32-oz. margarita! Super muy delicioso and highly recommend!

So whether by road or boat, take a ride out to one of the best-kept secrets on the lake.
