It’s not very often we head out to Sugar Land to grab a bite to eat, but when we do we always say it’s closer than we think and how come we don’t do this more often? I’ve had Jupiter Pizza & Waffle Co. on my list to try since they opened.
Walking in the restaurant is really open and loud. I forgot to take a picture. I’m not sure if it’s because we had a kid with us but we got seated in the very back behind a partitioned wall. The waiter seem super overwhelmed and forgot about us on several occasions. He had a line about them being a craft brewery outlet, yet didn’t know any of the seasonal beers on tap nor did they have a beer list.
For my son we ordered a kids pizza $6. The waiter brought him a cheese one instead of a pepperoni. The portion size was good and he really enjoyed the flavor.
Hubby and I both did their lunch special for $12 each. You choose an item for 3 courses.
I went with the House Salad (spring mix, arugula, strawberries, dates, buffalo mozzarella, candied pecans with an herb balsamic), Speed Dating (dates filled with goat cheese, wrapped in pancetta bacon served on belgian waffle triangles sprinkled with powdered sugar with a side of maple syrup and balsamic reduction) and Southern Belle (Crispy fried all natural chicken breast served over a Belgian waffle topped with our homemade maple cream)
The salad was good, it just lacked some dressing, but I liked how big and fresh the strawberries where. The speed dating was out of this world good. That balsamic reduction was life changing good. I really wanted to hoard it and lick the bowl. As for the chicken and waffles their waffles are really fluffy and the flavor isn’t cakey or too sweet. The chicken was melt in your mouth tender and moist and the seasoning in the coating was really good. Eating a bite of the chicken and waffle really took away from each other which I was sad about, so best to try on their own.
D ordered the Chix (spring mix, arugula, curried grilled chicken breast, gorgonzola
cheese crumbles, candied pecans, bacon and dill honey mustard), sweet potato fries (add cheese for $1, bacon or pulled pork for $3) and Meat Hugger Pizza (tomato sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni, italian sausage, and pecan smoked bacon)
The salad was ok, the potato fries where really good with the truffle oil they served, but the waiter forgot the add on of bacon and just brings a plate of bacon out. It was kindof random and not what we expected. The pizza was large in size and we took home half for another lunch.
Would we come back? Depends on who you ask. Hubby said no, I said yes. The prices are reasonable and the food seemed to have a lot of flavor. Yes it’s loud, but go when the weather is nice and sit outside.
