“Reliably good”
Review of Live Oak Grill

This place is always, reliably good. Friendly staff. Something for everyone on the menu. It's very low key - come as you are. And there's often some kiddie sport team or other celebrating a win or a loss in there.

I've been there several times and it is always good, offering all the burgers and other standard Texas lunch fare.

Tucked away in Sugar Land, this is a favorite eating place for locals. The hamburgers are large, the onion rings delicious and there are daily “comfort food” Southern specials. It’s casual seating with some wooden booths and some metal tables. There’s even a playground in the back for small kids. When it is cooler you can eat out front picnic style. On weekends the games are always on TV.

Order from the counter, big menu. First visit - shrimp poboy, chicken quesadilla(loaded), grilled catfish, fried okra, onion rings and sweet potato fries. All food was very good. Best fried okra I've had in a long time. Also have bottled beers and margerettas.

Busy lunch spot during week. Have not been at night.

We are new to the area and saw the great reviews on this place. We ordered some things to share. The printed menu doesn't have all of the offerings on it. We used it as a general guide but the chalkboard menu was more helpful. We ordered the fried brisket mac and cheese balls as an appetizer expecting that to come out first but it was served with the meal. Since the food came out SO fast, we expected it to be burning hot just out of the fryer but everything was just barely room temperature and the cheese sauce was kind of cold and pasty. They could have been scrumptious but instead, they were heavy and cold. The fries and onion rings were the same...just barely room temperature, like they had been sitting in the serving window for a while, yet they came out within about 5 minutes of ordering. The only thing that was a better temperature was the burger, which was warmer but way over-cooked. They didn't ask how I wanted it cooked so maybe they just cook things "well-done". The buffalo chicken sandwich again was room temperature but it was even more disappointing to have them just squirt some buffalo sauce onto the sandwich rather than to dredge it. All in all, for the price and the calories, next time we're in the mood for "country cooking" we'll find another place. I'm sure we can find food that is freshly cooked rather than sitting out and served at room temperature. Highly disappointing.
