4 Best Restaurants Near Candlelight Place

Lancaster Homes - Tuesday, January 14, 2020

One of the many reasons people move to Candlelight Place is its proximity to amazing restaurants. There’s something to be said about having multiple 5 Yelp-Star options within a five-mile radius. Whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner time, you and your family should check out these wonderful restaurants just a stone's throw from Lancaster Comes at Candlelight Place.


Forget about the feud between In-N-Out and Whataburger, if you want a great burger in the Garden Oaks/Candlelight Place area, MytiBurger is your best option.

Since 1967, Mytiburger has been serving Garden Oaks residents the best burgers, fries and homemade onion rings in Texas. Your orders are rung up at the counter next to an antique soda fountain and come out fresh in about 10 minutes.

This classic institution has been enjoyed by multiple generations. When the original owner decided to retire, the community came together and found someone to buy and manage the restaurant so the doors could stay open.

Come by for lunch or dinner and see what the fuss is all about.

Gatlin’s BBQ

If you are craving pit-smoked pork, chicken, turkey or beef Gatlin’s BBQ is the place to go. Like many other BBQ places in town, Gatlin’s often has a line out the door so you know the food is good.

What’s unique about Gatlin's BBQ is their rotating menu. You never know what meats and sides will be available, but they sure as heck will be tasty.

We recommend stopping by for an early lunch if you want a chance to score some of the best brisket in Garden Oaks.


For those craving Asian food, Candlelight Place is home to a unique hybrid of classic Vietnamese cuisine with an American twist. Hughie’s serves banh mi, pho’, dumplings and egg rolls along with side burgers and chicken-fried steak. For craft beer lovers, Hughie’s also has over 20 taps of rotating craft beer from local breweries and over 30 additional options in bottles and cans.

Although Hughie's is a “tavern”, it is still family-friendly and a great place to take your kids on the weekends.

Tacos A Go-Go

Last but not least is an affordable and authentic taco place. Recognized by the Houston Press and Texas Monthly, the award-winning Tacos A Go-Go, is light years ahead of taco bell in terms of taste and quality ingredients.

Whether it’s stopping by for a breakfast taco on your way to work or grabbing a few tacos on the way home after a late-night, this restaurant should be on your radar.
