Sweet News: State Fare Opens in Sugar Land

Houstonians need comfort food now more than ever — is this long-awaited expansion perfect timing?

Opening a restaurant during a pandemic isn't a challenge suited for just anyone. But four years after opening its doors in Memorial City, State Fare expands to Sugar Land, set to open tomorrow after months of uncertainty.


The familiar menu of comfort-food faves is lengthy — but the restaurant, and its chef, Justin Yoakum, are known for executing everything well. Last summer, a new section of health-minded “Lighter Fare" debuted, with vegetarian options to offset the heartier plates like the half-pound Akaushi beef burger topped with a slab of pork belly and bánh mì relish. And Yoakum, who will oversee both locations, is apparently most excited to bring his killer weekend brunch menu to Town Square: Wash down the savory crawfish benedict or “H-Town Hot Fried Chicken" with a flight of inventive bloody Mary's.

Patrons in Sugar Land can also enjoy late-night bites on Friday and Saturday nights, beginning at 9:30pm. The new menu includes brisket-and-cream-cheese-stuffed jalapenos wrapped in bacon, and slider versions of State Fare burgers.
