I was there a few years ago, unfortunately I forgot the names of the places I went to, but quite a few of them had a live band playing.

Hey Cupcake

Tell me what type of cuisine you're most interested in and I'll help you out. I can't be too helpful with bars though.

For Barbecue, try Rudy's, Art's, ooooh the Saltlick is amazing but it's a little out of the way, or Stubb's.

Brunch: The kerbey lane is a great choice as is the Magnolia Cafe.Trudy's has a good brunch, and wonderful drinks. If you go there for brunch I suggest a bloody mary. Any other time of day go for their mexican martinis.

A lot of these places I'm naming off are fairly low budget, being a student I go for cheap but good. If you are wanting fancier restaurants I can name those off too.
