Friends watching the game at The Ranch at Shadow Lake in Houston, Texas



Football season is here, and your Houston Texans are looking to make the playoffs for a third straight year. Bring the bar to your Ranch at Shadow Lake home with game day takeout spreads from these popular Houston hangouts.

Christian’s Tailgate Bar & Grill

Christian’s serves up traditional bar fare – wings, burgers, wraps, sliders, etc. – fit for game days. The burgers are Christian’s claim to fame. If your taste buds are feeling particularly adventurous, opt for the Country Fried Bacon Burger. This monstrosity is topped with country fried bacon and an onion ring – and it’s good for about a week’s worth of calories. Christian’s Energy Corridor restaurant is closest to home at The Ranch at Shadow Lake.

Jake’s Sports Bar

The menu at Jake’s Sports Bar offers a twist on your traditional pub offerings. Choose from cheesesteaks, hoagies, burgers, tacos, catfish platters, and an inventive array of appetizers – all with a creative twist. Some of the highlights include Jake’s Touchdown Burger, a glorious blend of brisket and angus, and the Chile and Queso Burger, an unholy mix of beef, cheddar cheese, jalapenos, queso, and chili. Order online for delivery or pickup.

Empire Pizza

Pizza and football make a great pair. Close-to-home Empire Pizza delivers a winning menu with a wide selection of pies worthy of a Texans game day. They also have a solid selection of wraps, subs, sandwiches, calzones, stromboli, and pasta. You can’t go wrong!
