OUR FAVORITE 
HOUSTON RESTAURANTS

HOME    TEXAS REGIONS



Houston spends more per capita eating out at its many fine restaurants than any other city in America. There is an ongoing debate between Dallas and Houston as to which has the best selection of restaurants in Texas. Most agree that Houston has a far more diverse ethnic cuisine than Dallas, which is no big surprise due to Houston having a large area which has become sort of an Asian Town. Houston may have restaurants representing every cuisine in the world, but the town has not forgotten Texas. There are plenty of great barbecue joints, steak joints and good ol' Southern Cooking. And Tex-Mex.


Below are some of our Favorite Places to Eat in Houston.
