At Niko Niko's, the decor and interior are reminiscent of a low-key diner, but fans of Greek food will not be disappointed in the least by the menu. If your focus is not on atmosphere, definitely give it a try. Outdoor seating is a perk in fair weather. Prices are extremely reasonable, but expect to really fall in love with the traditional gyros, the hamburger-stuffed cabbage rolls and the Greek meatballs.
This little late night joint has built a reputation on its New Orleans-style po' boys. (Why yes-that daiquiri *does* come in a to-go cup!) And while Maw Maw really did know how to make a mean, open-faced Hot Boudin Po' Boy and roux-riffic shrimp gumbo, this place particularly satisfies in the early morning hours with seven soul-satisfying ultimate breakfast burrito choices. For sensitive stomachs, stick with the Captain America (scrambled eggs, bacon, potato, cheddar). Otherwise, go for the Heart Attack (catfish, queso, fried eggs, and more) or Morning Glory (scrambled eggs, Cajun cheese dip, country sausage and special sauce). - JoAnn Takasaki

BB's has your New Orleans fix. Go to the happening White Oak Drive for a tremendous value in dinner. Just like their downtown and Montrose locations, this Louisiana eatery (with a healthy dash of Texas) overflows with coolness as they serve up delicious bayou treats, like Gumbo, Grillades & Grits, and Red Beans and Rice. In the mood for a sandwich for lunch? BBs' overstuffed New Orleans style Po'Boys will leave you slightly confused as to how you attack. Try the Bedtime In The Bayou, the ever-popular fried gulf shrimp sandwich fully dressed. You can blissfully tell where the crunch from the batter stops and the crunch from the shrimp begins, it's fantastic. -Adam Rosen
Barbecue lovers and chicken fried steak aficionados have been flocking to this popular Heights area family restaurant since 1986. There is no table service, but you are welcome to grab an icy soda or beer from the old fashioned drink case while you wait to order. The rustic wood walls, vintage signs and formica tables spell out casual dining. There is plenty of seating indoors, or you can stake out a table on the small covered patio. On the weekends, there is dinner and a show when bluegrass bands take to the stage in the back dining area. The generous barbecue brisket plate, served with tangy house sauce and two sides, is dependably delicious and bargain-priced. Other popular dishes include the crispy, chicken fried steak. A kid's menu is available, and there are plenty of desserts for everyone to choose from. If you want something stronger than the iced tea served in mason jars, beer and Texas wines are both available.
