    Pappasitos is quite good. I went when my FIL still lived in Houston. I'm a NASA dork so Mission Control was sweet.

    If you can, hit Perry's. Their humongous pork chop is nothing short of a meatgasm.

    What kind of chow do you like? Believe it or not, Houston has a terrific Chinatown, but you will need a car. I know many great places if you are interested.

    We will be at MD Anderson and would like to know about places fairly close.Could you drive to the coast and back in a day.

    From MD Anderson it is about an hour to the beach at Galveston.  If you are there for dinner eat at Gaido's.  The food is excellent and they have a great beer selection.

    Since you're visiting the Anderson, I wish you and yours strength and health. 

    Pappasito's is a decent place. Nellore is a good churrascaria near the medical center. Hollywood has decent Vietnamese. Hugo's is a nicer Mexican place that I really like. Make reservations for their  Sunday brunch if you can. There are some Indian places not far from the medical center too. Tons of good Asian places in town - sushi, Chinese, Malaysian, etc.  If you let me know what your budget and tastes are like, I can give better recommendations. 

    Houston Yelpers are a pretty good bunch, so anything rated 4 stars on Yelp is usually good. You canmake it to Galveston in about an hour or so, but it will be windy and possibly cold at the beach. I hear Lake Jackson is nice, but I've never been down there. Also check the Chowhound boards for medical center area recs.
