    LaLupita: Woodlands Riverwalk

    by apbeaches Updated Apr 26, 2014

    Pretty restaurant with a large shady patio on the Riverwalk in the Woodlands. Service was good. Quesadilla appetizers weren't too exciting, sort of a dry grilled cheese. Enjoyed the jicama shrimp tacos but they didn't come with all the nice sides. Drinks were good but pricey, desserts weren't too special.

    Favorite Dish: The River view.

    Pappas Bar BQ: BBQ

    by apbeaches Written Apr 26, 2014

    They packed our BBQ beautifully to transport home. Pounds of Brisket, Pulled Pork and BBQ sauce were wrapped & triple bagged for our plane ride home. TSA agents asked about our container of BBQ sauce wrapped in foil, once they heard it went with Pappas they let us through. We enjoyed a pulled pork po-boy and pecan pie for the flight, it was amazing.

    Favorite Dish: BBQ
    Others had huge baked potatoes stuffed with BBQ that looked incredible; but didn't think they would travel well.

    Chatkhara Grill: Mind bogglingly fab Lahori cuisine

    by alycat Updated Mar 28, 2013

    I was in Houston to attend an Indian style family wedding and did not get a chance to venture out much, but I was able to sneak in here on an off day. It was obviously the first time for me at this restaurant. They have a wonderful, wide spaced location, airy, with a great owner and a few lousy staff. The service is slow but the food is absolutely fabulous.

    I even got some kababs packed for myself on my way back to DC!....highly recommended

    Favorite Dish: I will VERY strongly recommend that you try their kababs, lahori choley and naan combo.! I hadnt eaten anything of this magnitude in a while, the taste still lingers in my mouth when I think about it. Perfectly grilled kababs, fresh pipping hot naan, and spicy choley for gravy with mango lassi to boot..what else....please tell me what else does a man need??

    On my next visit to Houston, I will try and have a meal more than once here.

    Hugo's: Fancy Mexican on Westheimer

    by XenoHumph Written Feb 10, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This wonderful restaurant offers haute-cuisine type of Mexican food, it is delicious and unlike any other Mexican restaurant you have been too. Everything is delicious! They have a large menu of meats and fishes. I enjoyed the goat dish (yes!) and the rabbit one. And the margaritas are probably the best in town. Try the original smokey Oaxaca one. Very professional waiters and the presentation of the food is also lovely (see picture).
    Make a reservation for a Friday and Saturday night. It gets crowded!
    They have valet parking at the back of the restaurant but you can park for free in the nearby streets.

    Favorite Dish: Everything is good. Be adventurous and try the grass hoppers? Don't worry, they also have chicken and snapper...

    Eric's: University of Houston Hilton excellent restaurant

    by XenoHumph Written Feb 10, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The University of Houston main campus has a School of hotel and restaurant management & service. This is their restaurant. All the food and service is by the students. Excellent service and dishes. Sort of average choice of fish and meats American style, but everything was perfect! Atmosphere is a little what you expect from a hotel restaurant, a little boring and empty. But there are not many good restaurants around the University of Houston main campus, and Eric's is one of the best.

    Favorite Dish: I had the most delicious tuna, cooked to perfection.

    Rouge: Excellent French/American, all in red! (Montrose)

    by XenoHumph Updated Feb 10, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    ****Update 2013: this restaurant unfortunately is now closed!!****

    Rouge is a recently opened restaurant in the Montrose area. As its name indicates, the decor is all in red (bordeaux). The service and food are excellent for the price. The presentations of the dishes are very original and nice, and the portions sizes very reasonable (not too big like in most American restaurants!). Can be a very romantic restaurant especially in the small room upstairs. The food is a cross between French (with a tinge of North African) and American. They change the menu regularly and experiment. Count $150 for 2 persons with wine.

    Favorite Dish: We loved the lamb and the rabbit dishes!

    Jeanine Bistro: Lovely Belgian restaurant: best mussels & fries!

    by XenoHumph Written Feb 10, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although this restaurant has been in Houston for decades, I only went recently and absolutely loved it! You do not know what Belgian food is? Wonderful mussels and fries, excellent creamy chicken dishes, nice steaks and stews, good fish and of course excellent fries served with mayonnaise! Note for Americans: what you call "French fries" is originally a typical Belgian specialty! They of course have a large choice of Belgian beers but also a good wine list. The waiter was very effective, professional and had lots of humor.
    They are closed on Sunday.

    Favorite Dish: Moules et Frites! (that's mussels and fries). I had the Congolese spicy version and it was delicious. I recommend the croquettes for appetizers (yummy fried potato puree bits). We had a nice German riesling with that.
    And the desserts! Try the crêpes (see picture)!

    Schlotzsky's: My Favorite Sandwich

    by msbrandysue Written Dec 30, 2012

    Schlotzsky’s is one of my very favorite places to eat. It’s a sandwich shop that you can take out or eat in the shop with plenty of tables always available. It’s a bit pricier ($6-7 for a sandwich) than most other sandwich shops but definitely worth it.

    It's a place where you order at the counter, then wait for your food and pick it up when they call your number. It's very casual and I'm sure you'll love the food!

    Hours of operation
    Mon-Sun: 10:00am-10:00pm; some Houston locations vary

    Participating restaurants also include a Cinnabon inside

    Favorite Dish: The highlight is the sandwiches. They make it with thick sourdough bread and very thinly sliced meat. Then they sprinkle cheese (the best is a mixture of cheddar and mozzarella) on one piece of bread and run it through an oven conveyor belt. Therefore the sandwich is warm and very tasty. The Original is their signature sandwich and comes with: “Home of The Original® Sandwich. Lean smoked ham, Genoa and cotto salamis, and melted cheddar, mozzarella, and parmesan cheeses layered with black olives, red onion, lettuce, tomato, mustard and our signature dressing on toasted Sourdough bread.” (From the website.)

    Their sandwiches are quite large. I’ve never ordered a large, the mediums are quite enough when you’re at your hungriest.

    Their original chips are delicious! Their pizzas are as well. The cheese and pizza is definitely worth trying, also cooked on a sourdough. The bbq chicken looks just as good but it’s hard not to get my favorite sandwich, the turkey and cheese.

  • fandango: Excellent Chicken Fajita

    by cuteguy1987 Written Jul 4, 2012

    This restaurant on weisthiemer road is a joint for Mexican food. The crowd is noisy at times (cant blame - Its the weisthiemer after all). Magarritas are yummy. Unlike the chain restaurants, the food is authentic mexican.

    Irmas South West Grill: A nice place for Lunch in the Downtown

    by cochinjew Written Jun 27, 2012

    warm welcome, a very american crowd, the resto is much more american in ambience but the food is definitely tex mex

    Favorite Dish: Large portions so unless you are very hungry dont order combinations or specials.
    i had just one cheese enchilada and it cames with mountains of nachos.. i could hardly finish it ..
    Taste is just ordinary so you come here for lunch not for a gourmet experience

    lounge like ambience cheese enchilada with frijoles and arroz

    Landry's Seafood House: Great Seafood, Family Upscale

    by msbrandysue Written Jan 17, 2012

    I’ve been to Landry’s three times now, for three consecutive Thanksgiving meals. The first two times were EXTREMELY pleasing and the thought of it makes me wish it were November already. (Note: The Thanksgiving of 2011 left a bit to be desired but 2 out of 3 ain’t bad.) The seafood is amazing: especially the salmon and tilapia. The waiters and waitresses are dressed nicely in white button down shirts with black ties, and prices are higher than you would normally pay. Needless to say, we don’t come here with big parties or every day use. But it’s nice every now and then to pay/eat above normal seafood.

    *If you find yourself in Houston (or The Woodlands) next Thanksgiving you may want to try their Traditional buffet for a pre fix $30 or something like that. But the food is AMAZING with traditional fixings and THEN a whole other section of seafood. The wine list is also nice, and all drinks I’ve ordered there have come out very nice. Make sure you make reservations, though! It can be up to a 2 hour waiting line…

    On a beautiful day they have an outdoor seating area that has a beautiful view of the manmade lake that surrounds most of The Woodlands.

    Hours of Operation
    Monday - Thursday: 11am - 10pm
    Friday - Saturday: 11am - 11pm
    Sunday: 10:30am - 10pm

    Lunch Hours
    Monday - Saturday: 11am - 4pm

    Dinner Hours
    Monday - Saturday: 4pm - Closing

    Favorite Dish: The seafood is wonderful. I enjoyed the salmon, seafood pasta and the many desserts.

    Good wine selection... Dining area (and out the window is the patio seat) The corner of the restaurant from the Waterway

    Mission Burritos: What Chipotle wishes they were

    by bocmaxima Written Sep 20, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    "Mexican" isn't really an accurate way to describe a Mission-style burrito. Originating in San Francisco's Mission District, the only thing they really share in common with a Mexican-style burrito is the wrapping style.

    Locally-owned and so much better than Chipotle, Mission Burritos is Houston's hometown burrito place. This was a staple for me while I was in college and I have to make at least one trip there whenever I'm in town. They were unfortunately limited to two locations (Durham south of I-10 & Alabama east of Kirby) for many years after closing several within the city in the mid-90's, but have since re-expanded into the Houston suburbs.

    They differ from Chipotle in the variation of ingredients. For instance, you can choose from four different kinds of salsa and four different kinds of tortillas. But the quality is also so much better.

    For Austinites, the comparable place is Freebirds. In fact, there was somewhat of a lively competition between the original Freebirds location in Houston (on Shepherd) and Mission Burrito for a number of years.

    Favorite Dish: Of the meats, my favorite is the chicken

    Me at the Durham location in 2009
