Just a few minutes south of Houston is Pearland, a fairly popular and quickly growing suburban city. Contrary to its name, there are no actual pears in the area. However, there are tons of good restaurants to choose from. Whether you want some fairly priced sushi or delicious barbecue, Pearland will have what you’re looking for.

Whether you want to enjoy a hibachi dinner in front of a grill with your own personal chef or just come in for some sushi and cocktails, Sakura Japanese Steak House and Sushi Bar is a Pearland favorite. Come in for Lunch Specials or their Happy Hour, where choice sushis are as low as $2.50. Happy Hour doesn’t just pertain to sushi: you can also choose from appetizers and select beverages. The Crunch Calamari roll is a great choice if you love cream cheese.

Grazia Italian Kitchen

The delicious menu here includes starters such as Spinach and Artichoke Dip served with fresh baked wood-fired flat bread, or Shrimp and Mango Ceviche. For a main, try the Mike & Jen Pasta (one of our favorites) or the Pasta Alla Vodka. If pasta isn’t your thing, you can also choose from select wood-fired pizzas or dishes made from the grill. Grazia also has a Sunday Brunch menu.

Killen’s Steakhouse

Killen’s Steakhouse is considered one of the best steakhouses in America. Purchasing top-quality meats from places like Allen Brothers of Chicago, there is no wonder why the steak dishes, from the Filet Mignons to the Ribeyes, are top-rated. The creamed corn, macaroni and cheese, and the Creme Brûlée Bread Pudding are also favorites on the menu.

Gringo’s Mexican Kitchen

The first Gringo’s, also known as The Original, opened in Pearland in 1993. Now, this local favorite has 10 locations in nine different Texas cities. It’s their tasty Tex-Mex favorites, like their fajitas or their Baja BBQ Ribs Plate, and their selection of Margaritas that makes Gringo’s a one-of-a-kind dining experience. Guests can also indulge themselves with free soft serve ice cream; whether you want it before or after your meal (or even both) is up to you. There are two Pearland locations, The Original and the one located at the Pearland Town Center.
