Best burger joint in Sugar Land, Texas.

Our family lives about 5 miles from Live Oak Grill and have been coming to Live Oak Grill once or twice a week ever since the 80's. They prepare the burgers or other sandwiches they way you desire and they are always steaming hot. I am sure we will continue to dine at Live Oak Grll as long as... read more

This is a great place to get a good hamburger and fries. It's very casual and reasonably priced. You order at the counter and then pick up your food when it's ready. On a nice day, you can sit outside at picnic tables. They have a good selection of salads, sandwiches and finger foods. It's a great place to bring... More

I gave the new owners (Hoggs & Chicks gang) a couple of months before trying the new fare at this long standing institution. Not only was the food off the charts but the whole place has had a nice face lift. I had the patty melt which was almost too big to finish and I am a big eater! I... More

I had the best grilled chicken and potatoes, cooked to perfection. I love that they updated inside and did some beautiful work outside, tables, patio and dog friendly outside.

Live Oak is a classic -- terrific burgers and lots of ambience. Clearly a favorite of the locals - which speaks volumes

Had a nice lunch there today. We lived in Sugar Land for many years and have eaten at this restaurant many times. We moved away two years ago, but had to return for business reasons. Our lunch was as good as it was years ago. The chicken fried steak with green beans and Texas Caviar (bean salad) was great. I... More

One of our "Go-to" places. Always great food and wonderful atmosphere. Crazy old guy walking around with an apron on looking like he's working! He just might sit down at your table and strike up a conversation, but the food is worth it. Just joking.

It's nice to know there are still old reliable places where you can go for lunch where the food is good, the service is done with a smile, and you can always count on having a pleasant experience.

This is a GREAT place for good ole fashioned food. They have about the best hamburgers in town, and their port chop, tuna steak, salmon and everything else are very tasty. You can't go wrong with anything you order. On a nice day, enjoy sitting outside under the shade of the big trees.
