KATY (Covering Katy News) - If you are looking for burgers, football and flexible options, you should try Scholars & Scoundrels. They allow you to put anything on your burger so they get high marks for flexibility.
I tried a fried zucchini appetizer, but even with the ranch dip I was not a fan.
The burgers have funny names. The one I ordered is called the OG with cheese. It’s served with American cheese, pickles, butter lettuce, beefsteak tomatoes and red onion. While the burger was good, it wasn’t the best I've ever had.
I also tried a taste of their bacon burger that had a good amount of crispy, peppered bacon. It’s called the Cheat Day burger and comes with double patties, double bacon, double cheese, butter lettuce, pickles and beefsteak tomatoes.
The Chimi Churri wrap with chicken had a nice Southwest flavor. It comes with avocado, cilantro lime, rice and black beans.
My favorite was their Crack Mac and Cheese. It was cheesy, creamy and I couldn’t get enough of it. It was phenomenal!
The restaurant also has a variety of card games on the tables for guests to enjoy. In addition to that, they had loads of TVs playing all kinds of sports.
The check was presented with a unique touch. Instead of presenting it in a regular black folder, they bring it to you in an old book.
The history of Scholars & Scoundrels is very interesting. I spoke with the manager and he said there are two owners, Tony and Chad, who used to serve in the military. The restaurant started as a food truck that would pop-up at events. Then, demand from the public convinced them to open a restaurant. They chose the name because they believe that is what the people who built our great country were, Scholars and Scoundrels
While the mac and cheese was delicious, the food was just OK. The football, friendly and fun atmosphere made up for it. Overall, I give Scholars & Scoundrels 3.5 out of 4 stars.
Scholars and Scoundrels is located at 1251 Pin Oak Rd Suite 141, Katy, TX 77494.
