The interior theme of this charming cafe is decorated in memory of a dog named Barnaby (may he rest in peace). The little dog bones adorning the walls certainly make excellent conversation pieces. Bring along family and friends for this enjoyable experience. The menu offers a wide range of items that might make it difficult to choose. A good old-fashioned hamburger with French fries is always an excellent choice. If you want something lighter, try one of the delicious (and huge) salads. Talk your friends into sharing with you because you will want to leave room for one of the delicious desserts, such as the carrot cake or apple pie.
Pizza goes gourmet at this award-winning restaurant. The decor at this rambling, two-story restaurant is as eclectic as the clientele, which ranges from urban hipsters to suburban families. There are several dining areas to choose from, including an upstairs area with big-screen television and a large dining deck. Even the staunchest spinach hater will ask for seconds of the Joe's Pizza, which features sautéed fresh spinach and garlic and is the restaurant's number-one seller. Running a close second is the Rosemary & Garlic Grilled Chicken Pizza, topped with alfredo sauce, gorgonzola cheese, sautéed mushrooms, onions and fresh basil.
A Houston mainstay since the early 1970s, people of all types seem to be irresistibly drawn to the House of Pies. The round-the-clock service even keeps the staff hopping in the middle of the night. The dinner menu is dominated by diner-style, short-order items but there is no denying that slices of pie are what put them on the map. Chocolate fans will adore a monstrous slice of bayou goo, but there are plenty of other heavenly-sweet slices to choose from if chocolate is not your flavor.
Pappas Brothers Steakhouse is just one of the many Pappas restaurants that prevail in Houston. The cuisine this family seems to have spells success. Soft lighting and 1920s brass-rimmed decor give this Galleria-area favorite a sense of class and style. The old-fashioned phones located in every booth are real and never fail to stimulate conversation. Live entertainment further ensures a memorable evening. The menu is steak-heavy, but alternate seafood selections are available. Menu prices are a steal for very high quality food. Wines to quench your thirst are available too.
Make a reservation and take a trip down Westheimer to the pleasantly international Westchase District for a pleasing taste of Persia. If you still haven't given Middle Eastern food a try, you are sorely missing out. Kasra Persian Grill is the perfect place to start with their warm and inviting atmosphere and crave-worthy food. Despite this being Texas, lamb is indeed the new beef, and Kasra's Lamb Shank is simply other-worldly. Not sure which spiced meat you're in the mood for? Get a combo, featuring hot skewers of either red meat or poultry. Even try the marinated Salmon Kebab. And you'll love the fluffy Basmati rice and spiced grilled veggies. -Adam Rosen
Maggie Moo's is a magical place particularly for young children, but certainly for adults of all ages as well. Stop in after either lunch or dinner for countless chunky combinations of mix-ins, laced throughout silky smooth frozen dairy goodness. Create your own perfect mixture, like Vanilla Bean with firm blackberries and squeaky walnuts, or mix your favorite candy bar with your favorite ice cream flavor. You can also order your ice cream cakes and cupcakes here, and Mint Chocolate Chip never fails. Fear not health freaks, they also have several frozen yogurt options too.
