That restaurant was Brandani’s Restaurant & Wine Bar, located in Township Square in Missouri City. Nearly four years later, in January 2019, when another space was available two doors down, they jumped at the opportunity again and opened Brandani’s Burgers, Tacos & Brews.
“Everybody loved our [first] restaurant, but not everybody wants to come and do a sit-down meal,” Claire said. “On a Saturday you just want to go grab something quick, but you want something that’s still fresh and delicious and not made by a chain.”
Brandani’s Burgers, Tacos & Brews is more casual than the Brandanis’ first restaurant and serves a variety of diner-style menu options including half a dozen burger choices, tacos with different toppings, and items such as sandwiches, salads and chicken fried steak. The restaurant also has a vast selection of beers and wines.
Ron said when the restaurant opened last year, there was no place like it in Missouri City.
“I thought, well, there’s no really good burger restaurants in town,” he said. “And, no one’s doing burgers and tacos.”
When Brandani’s Burgers, Tacos & Brews opened, the restaurant had only eight tables. However, a boutique next door closed around the same time as the restaurant opened, so the Brandanis leased that space and expanded the dining area into it.
“We knew we were probably going to need this space,” Ron said. “It’s been great; it’s been a lot more room.”
Claire said the food at the restaurant is inspired by what her family likes to eat. Because of this, there is something for everyone, she said.
“We kind of run the gamut with our flavors and our food,” Claire said. “If dad wants to have an outrageous burger that’s just amazing, but mom wants to eat healthy, and then the kids want something that they like, we feel like we can really cater to the whole family.”
