The Mueller community is one of the fastest rising neighborhoods in the city, and has experienced a boom in restaurant and bar openings in recent months. There is a lot to choose from, and Eater is here to help.

Options are plenty in Mueller — Kyoten Sushiko is one of the premiere sushi restaurants in town, while L'Oca d'Oro offers Italian cuisine with ingredients all sourced from sustainable farms. Fresh fare also comes in the form of Contigo which thrives in its outdoor, ranch-inspired atmosphere.

Quicker choices are also abundant. Xian Sushi and Noodle offers hand-pulled Chinese noodles, Paco’s Tacos delivers no frills tacos and enchiladas, and newcomer Batch serves up delicious kolaches fueled by Micklethwait Craft Meats’ barbecue. The neighborhood is anchored by a weekly farmer’s market and several food trucks, including Gravy which delivers homey, southern breakfast foods.

For the purposes of this map, the Mueller neighborhood is considered east of I-35, with Airport Boulevard, 38th Street, Manor Road and 51st Street serving as the boundaries.

If there’s a favorite Mueller spot missing, let Eater know through the tipline or in the comments.
