New and Noteworthy Restaurants in College Station

College Station is a magnet for new and trendy eateries. Though there is often a lot of speculation about what's being built and what's coming next in town, here are a few newcomers that have already developed a devoted fanbase near our apartments in College Station.

MESS Waffles, Etc

The much-hyped and loved food truck is now a brick and mortar at Century Square. MESS Waffles, Etc serves their famous chicken and waffles along with other savory waffle creations and comfort food specialties like mac and cheese. They also offer crazy imaginative dessert waffles topped with fruit, ice cream, chocolate, caramel, and more. The upscale new location plans to be open by October, and fans are already clamoring to place orders.

Dat Dog

Brand new to Church Avenue, Dat Dog is definitely not your average hot dog stand. Featuring 12 types of sausages—including vegan, alligator, duck, and of course traditional—along with 31 different topping options, Dat Dog could serve you a different dog each day for months. Choose your own combo or check out house specials like the "Bacon Werewolf" or the "Son of a Saint 'Dog." What began as a small New Orleans shop quickly expanded to multiple locations, but the newly opened College Station spot is only one of two to be found outside of Louisiana.

French Fry Heaven

The new French Fry Heaven will also mark the first Texas location for this small chain of potato purveyors. Their mission is to serve the best fries on earth, and with a menu of fries topped with outrageous toppings like poutine, chili and cheese, and even bacon cheeseburger, they are sure to become the next great place to cure a late night carb craving. Don't want fries? Stuffed spuds and chicken tenders are also options. Planned for Century Square, their opening date isn't set just yet, but they promise they're coming soon.

For more details on new dining establishments making their way to the neighborhood, the City of College Station produces a podcast to give you the scoop on what's really coming and what might just be a rumor. Check out the "Is This a Thing" podcast for all the latest news on what's opening soon.
