You’re in Corpus Christi and you’re hungry. You had a long day of fun, and now it’s time to have dinner and relax. Which of the many Corpus Christi restaurants will provide you with a good meal to satisfy your appetite?
Corpus Christi is a fairly big city, so there are many places to eat. It is nice, however, if you can find good restaurants fairly near to where you are likely to stay when on vacation in Corpus.
Here are a few of our favorite…
Corpus Christi Restaurants
My favorite among Corpus Christi restaurants is probably the Ol’ Steakhouse Co. (formerly Longhorn Steak & Ale).
These guys sure know how to cook a steak. Try the ribeye! The calamari is wonderful too.
The atmosphere at the Ol’ Steakhouse Co is casual, their service is great, and so are their prices. All round excellent value!
Andy’s Kitchen is a simple, family-owned restaurant with good food. It is a “southern home style” restaurant.
Andy’s Kitchen is open for breakfast and lunch. You can have amazing country breakfast there for under $10. If you feel like a Mexican breakfast, they have that too.
For lunch they have old southern favorites, like country fried steak and country fried chicken. They also have a nice range of seafood and Mexican dishes.
The kids enjoyed the locomotives circling on two suspended tracks! I enjoyed the friendly service, good food, and reasonable prices.
In the mood for some Italiano? Give Bellino’s a shot!
Bellino’s serves authentic Italian food. While they don’t serve pizza, you will find an excellent range of salads, sandwiches, pasta, dessert, coffees, and more. They also have a great kids’ menu.
Bellino’s is closed on Sunday and Monday, open for lunch and dinner on all other days, with happy hour from 3 pm – 6 pm.
Hester’s Cafe & Coffee Shop have two locations, one on Alameda street, and the other at the Art Museum.
Hester’s is open for lunch and breakfast, although the Art Museum location only opens at 10 a.m.
If you like good coffee, Hester’s is the place to go. If you go for breakfast, try one of their omelettes. They are great. Their panninis are very good too. For lunch they have a variety of tasty sandwiches and panninis, as well as salads.
Did I mention coffees? And then there are the coffees…
Last, but not least, is the Executive Surf Club. They have good food, cold beer, and live music!
Some of the Executive Surf Club’s favorites include chicken fried steak, various wraps, and fish & chips. They also serve various delicious burgers and sandwiches.
If you’re a beer lover, you’ll find various domestic beers, imported beers, and beer on tap. One of my favorites on tap is Landshark.
There are usually also live bands that play that the Executive Surf Club on the weekends. If you want a fun evening out, this is a great place to go.
These restaurants ought to provide a scrumptious meal to satisfy a wide variety of people, including you and you family. If, however, you want to look at a few more choices, here is a list of good Corpus Christi restaurants.
