My family has been going here for many years. Two things stand out: the menu and quality. The menu has a nice variety to satisfy most appetites. The chicken-fried chicken or steak, any hamburger and the pork chops are my families go-to choices. The quality of the food is always consistent. The mashed potatoes and green beans are my favorite... More

The food here was superb, and better than I thought. It was not your run-of-the mill burger place. There was a decent selection, the service (counter) was great, and quality of food was fantastic. My wife is a born foodie and not the easiest to please, but liked this place. This is a neighborhood place for us and we will... More

Great little place. Good sized menu with plenty of choice. Friendly staff and quick service for the food; although this place is more like fast food in that you order at the counter and collect your food rather than table service. Great to sit outside on a nice day. We had grilled shrimp with fries and coleslaw and chicken fried... More

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 we... 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
