There are ample dining options in College Station, and no endorsement is implied in the following information.

The University Drive and Texas Avenue corridors offer a good variety.  Just across from the Hilton there are a number of choices including Blue Baker for breakfast, sandwiches, and pizza; Razoo's Cajun Cafe; Pei Wei; and Grub Burger Bar.  For Mexican food in that spot, Rosa's Cafe is very reasonable and serves great tortillas, and Abuelo's offers classic Tex-Mex.

Just east of the university campus on Texas Avenue can be found a Chilis, Torchy's Tacos, Lupe Tortilla, Shiraz Shish Kabob, and much more.

For those willing to drive a bit, historic Downtown Bryan has a ton of fun options.
