No. 1 EAT Like a Local
Get your taste buds ready for a culinary experience in Midland.
With over 80 locally owned and operated restaurants, the only challenge is deciding where to start first! Enjoy a unique dining experience at Café at the Gardens located in the midst of Alldredge Gardens, a local nursery and garden center. Café at the Gardens was recently recognized by Texas Travel Counselors as their favorite restaurant among the many they experienced while on the Texas Travel Industry Association tour through Texas. The savory aroma of the bar-b-q will tempt you before you ever reach the pit at KD’s Bar-B-Q. Select the meat straight off the pit and then head inside for all the trimmings at the fixings bar.
If Mexican cuisine is what you crave, you will have an abundance of establishments to choose from, including Gerardo’s Casita, owned and operated by Mayor Jerry Morales and his family. For fine dining, step into the Garlic Press or Venezia’s and enjoy fare fit for a king. At Graham’s Pharmacy, they are serving up great lunch fare with a side of nostalgia at their old fashioned soda fountain, but get there early because tables fill up fast!
