When adult children come home for the holidays, treat them to their favorite eats at Lakewood’s best restaurants. Bring your out-of-town guests along, too, for a taste of Texas they can’t get anywhere else.

These are one homesick daughter’s must-haves before going back up north.

Alfonso’s — chicken parmesan
Lakewood Smokehouse — jalapeño firecrackers
Burger House — French fries and a cherry milkshake
Velvet Taco — Buffalo chicken taco
Cane Rosso — brussels sprouts
Cigarz Bona Pizza — meatball sub
