The Woodlands Wildflower Festival – September 26th 10-2pm

From inception, the vision of The Woodlands set out to maintain green space and the natural beauty of the Texas piney woods in the midst of their growing developments.

This year’s event is sponsored by The Woodlands Development Company, and The Woodlands Convention and Visitors Bureau and will take place September 26th, from 10-2pm in Town Green Park in The Woodlands Town Center.

23 varieties of free wildflower seeds will be distributed by local businesses during The Woodlands Wildflower Festival. As with many local events, there will be many free activities for this family friendly festival. Giant inflatables, petting zoo, face painting, balloon art and music will also accompany the event. The Woodlands’ very own Puffy Pine Cone will make an appearance along with Bridgeland Bill from The Woodlands’ sister community.

Concessions will be made available by the Griddlez Road Side Café and Cousins Maine Lobster food trucks, which will be accepting both cash and credit.

honeybeeham

Honey-Bee Ham & Deli – 4.12/5 Stars (25 Reviews) $
Honey-Bee Ham & Deli WebsiteDirections | Link to Yelp Profile

Honey Bee Ham & Deli has been at this Woodlands location since 1994. We feature spiral-sliced honey glazed hams, smoked and cajun-smoked turkeys, cajun fried turkeys, tur-duc-hens, gourmet sandwich trays, fruit and veggie trays, and delicious side dishes, as well as our deli sandwiches. Honey Bee Ham was also voted best burger in Montgomery County!

“I’ve been coming to Honey-Bee Ham & Deli for at least six years. It was voted best burger in Montgomery County once upon a time for good reason and nothing’s changed. The burgers are cooked fresh, they have a great selection of amazing buns, and a wide variety of foods from Jerk Chicken to PoBoys. My go-to here is a 1/3 lb bubba basket with the Jalapeño Sourdough bun and the pepper jack cheese. I love that dang bun.” Matthew E. – Yelp Review

 

jaxJAX Burgers Fries Shakes – 4.06/5 Stars (16 Reviews) $$
JAX Burgers Fries Shakes WebsiteDirections | Link to Yelp Profile

JAX Burgers is dedicated to serving the most delicious burgers in Spring, TX; Conroe, TX; The Woodlands, and the surrounding areas. We take our role as a reputable burger joint seriously and work hard to keep all our loyal customers happy and satisfied. Whether you’re looking for a quick bite to eat on your way home from work or want to take your whole family out to dinner, JAX Burgers is the place to go.

“Gave them a rare 5 star for one of the best hamburgers I’ve ever ate!  If it is not the best it is definitely top 3. I had the bacon cheeseburger and Cajun fries. Both were great and we all spilt a couple of Chocolate malts to wash it down. The malts are made to order and were also top notch. If you like to find good burger joints, this one is a must!” Josh R. – Yelp Review

 

grubburgerGrub Burger Bar – 4.02/5 Stars (91 Reviews) $$
Grub Burger Bar WebsiteDirections | Link to Yelp Profile

We’re passionate about great food, great drinks and great hospitality. We believe in fresh ingredients and big flavors, delivered by caring, friendly people. And we know that a lively environment makes it all feel and taste better. At Grub we use quality, fresh, and differentiating ingredients.Our buns are baked from scratch every hour. We grind our signature blend of chuck and brisket in-house daily. All of our sauces and dressings are homemade. We are proud to source local when possible.

“Amazing burger – food was tasty, hot, and exactly as ordered. Kids menu is small, but both loved the chicken strips. Beer menu isn’t extensive but they have some great seasonal choices. Never been before but planning to return soon!”– Michael W. – Yelp Review

 

culver'sCulver’s – 3.94/5 Stars (54 Reviews) $
Culver’s WebsiteDirections | Link to Yelp Profile

As Craig Culver will tell you, Culver’s ButterBurgers are made the way they are today because that’s how his mom always did it. Still, we use fresh, never frozen, 100% Midwest beef, seared to perfection and served on a lightly buttered toasted bun for that extra touch of goodness. Sure, it takes a bit longer doing it that way, but boy is it worth the wait.

“Hamburgers and fries are very, very good. Their onion rings are excellent. Not exactly a steak burger nor a thick burger – sort of a mix. The veggies on the burger are fresh. I was really impressed with the variety of items on the menu. Look forward to visiting even more often after a good first impression.” Jared B. – Yelp Review

 

Whataburger-big-burgerWhataburger – 3.93/5 Stars (15 Reviews) $
Whataburger WebsiteDirections | Link to Yelp Profile

Each and every Whataburger® is still made to order—when it’s ordered. We still use 100% pure beef and serve it on a big, toasted five-inch bun. We still greet our customers with a smile 24 hours a day, seven days a week. And while we now serve hot, fresh food at more than 750 Whataburgers across the country, that original burger stand in Corpus Christi is never far from our hearts.

“When you are truly craving a Whataburger burger there is no other means to satisfy that craving. And while I may whine and fuss over their location and wish they delivered I will still make the trek.” Jamie M. – Yelp Review

 

3bs3B’s Bill’s Burgers Beers – 3.70/5 Stars (54 Reviews) $$
No Website| Directions | Link to Yelp Profile

No Website/Write-up available, so we’ll jump straight to the reviews! “I come here all the time, their burgers are the best! Always hot and juicy. I’ve tried almost everything on the menu. The Frito pie hot dog is one of my favorites. I’ve never been disappointed here!” Joshua L. – Yelp Review
