Tilted Pint

4248 Boonville Road

A few years ago while enjoying some home brew, three friends decided to make a lifelong dream a reality. That dream was to create a neighborhood pub. Their dream came to life with the opening of Tilted Pint in early 2020. Their website states, “We wanted to cultivate an environment where people feel at home. Where everybody knows each other, and of course we know who you are and what you like to eat and drink.”

Tilted Pint has quickly become a destination for locals & visitors looking to gather with friends & neighbors, unwind with a craft beer or signature cocktail, and recharge with classic pub fare like fish & chips, or modern bites like roasted red pepper hummus.

Bonus Spot: Inside Scoop From A Local


Taqueria El Tio

911 North Bryan Avenue

One might say this taqueria is definitely more of the “hole-in-the-wall” variety, but trust us when we say you’ve got to make a stop here. Their tortas, tacos al pastor, and fajita tacos are some of the best & most authentic you’ll find in Bryan-College Station.

Know Before You Go: The restaurant is really just one big patio. You’ll walk through a gate, and order from a window on the side of the building. There’s no menu posted, so you just have to know what to get. That’s what we’re here for! Your options are tortas, tacos, or quesadillas. We recommend the tacos al pastor, beef or chicken fajita tacos, or the chicken quesadilla. You also absolutely cannot go wrong with a torta filled with whichever meat you prefer.

No need to be intimidated if you’re not fluent in Spanish – this writer isn’t, and I love this place! Just be polite, and if all else fails… order a quesadilla and a coke!

HOURS OF OPERATION
Daily | 11AM-2AM(ish)


Now head outside & soak up the sunshine with a tasty bite and a refreshing drink or two! For more inspiration & the inside scoop on all the best Bryan has to offer, follow us on Instagram!
