Taste of BCS Celebrates Local Cuisine


What makes a town unique?

Is it the history? Sure, that plays into it. Bryan-College Station has an exciting past that is sure to entertain locals and visitors alike. Or could it be the attractions? From Downtown Bryan to Texas A&M University to the countless recreational parks, there are plenty of things to do and see.

But the argument could be made that what really makes a town unique is the food.

That is why The Bryan-College Station Independent Restaurants, more commonly known as the Taste of B-CS, was founded. The Taste of B-CS promotes dining in local independent area restaurants in Bryan-College Station, wanting diners to experience local flavor and be aware of the importance of independent restaurants, not only in the area, but nationwide.

Local restaurants, such as Casa Rodriguez, Lakeside Icehouse at Lake Bryan and the Village Downtown, are owned and operated by people who truly care about the town, its people and its future. Money spent with these organizations stay in Bryan-College Station, as owners support other local businesses and charities. It is the hope of many of these restaurant owners that their businesses and services can help improve the way of life in the Bryan/College Station area.

Many of these restaurants offer amazing deals and experiences throughout the week, enticing diners to spend their money locally. On Mondays, you can enjoy Half Price Burger Night at Chicken Oil Co. Maybe you would like to join The Village Downtown on Wednesday nights for Salsa dancing. Need something chill to do on a Saturday? Live music on the patio at Shipwreck Grill is the perfect way to relax.
