Contemporary American | College Station, College Station / Bryan

We could not have been more pleased with our graduation celebration at Poppy. We arrived early and with one less person than our reservation had been for, but the staff got a table ready quickly, seated us early, and served delicious food. The ambiance was lovely and comfortably quiet (quiet enough to hear each other but not so quiet that we were concerned about having a fun time!) Thank you Jose for such exceptional service. More

Tex-Mex | Temple, Killeen / Temple

Overall, I liked the restaurant. Both service and food was good. The interior of the restaurant was nice and new, but not fancy. Probably not my first choice for a romantic date night out. More

The service was exemplary and the food was delicious. One of the best gluten free pasta dishes I’ve had. It felt like we were guests in a warm family home. Definitely going back. More
