Nearby restaurants

The list below is not complete - I'm not sure it ever could be. As fast as places open (and occasionally close) that wouldn't be possible. It is fairly comprehensive and Karen and I have tried many of the restaurants personnally, so we determine what goes on the list and what doesn't. If you find something notable that needs to be on the list, please let us know. If you try something that shouldn't be on the list - we're sorry - and please let us know so we can make that correction.

You can have meals delivered to Meritage Meadows from restaurants noted below with an asterix (*). Other than Pizza, there is a $25 minimum order and there is a delivery charge and delivery takes about 1 hour. All considered, that makes it just about like room service at many hotels except you don't get a cart. We have silver and dishes available for your use in our dining room. If you order in, please feel free to use the service and tables in the dining room - it really is more comfortable than your room for that purpose.
