Tommy Bahama's Tropical Cafe

9595 Six Pines Drive

Located in the Woodland's Square, just opposite from Jaspers is the tropical paradise of Tommy Bahama's Tropical Cafe. Just like last week, we had lunch outside in front of the square. The restaurant also has a garden room that looks almost like it's outside--so it's not a bad thing to have to sit inside on these beautiful spring days.

We started with the coconut shrimp. It's a little pricey, but pretty good--if a little bit sweet for shrimp. As Rekha said, they need to use regular coconut shavings, and not the sweet ones... I didn't know there was a difference.

I tried a pulled pork burger that comes buried under small tiny little fried onions. It's a bit too tangy for pulled pork, but I don't imagine there are that many good pulled pork spots in Houston (I really would like suggestions). I had the half rack of ribs (about $20). There are better ribs in the city, but there isn't a prettier view of the Woodlands while eating ribs.

Come enjoy the expensive food and the great atmosphere. If you spill a little sauce on your shirt, you can just turn the corner, go into the attached Tommy Bahamas clothing stor, and buy an expensive shirt.

I have not tried it, but Lyndon's Barbecue is reputed to have great pulled pork. 13165 Northwest Freeway (SE corner of NW Fwy and Hollister).

You heard right. Lyndon's is absolutely the best place for pulled pork. I'm eaten there dozens of times. It's great!

The pulled pork is not very good here. In fact, it is horrible. The best ever-Memphis-Charlie Vergo's
