This classic favorite manages to combine funky wharf decor with elegant table arrangements to create a finished atmosphere that seems just right. Although Pappas Seafood House is popular with business diners during the day, the soft lighting particularly appeals to couples in the evenings. You will find that menu items like the soft shell crab or stuffed flounder are more than worth the expense. The menu says that the Greek salad is for two, but it will feed four or more.
This extremely popular country and Western club features a full-service liquor bar and a huge dance floor. Live music gets the people on the dance floor every Friday and Saturday with the sounds of Steppin' Out Band and Canyon Road. Saddle up and come on in for a foot-stomping good time. Thursday night is Steak Night and if there then simply order a beautiful rib-eye with a big baked potato and beans for a very modest price. It doesn't get any better than this!
Situated a short walk away from the Knights Inn Houston North/IAH, Vincenzo's has a menu filled with simple Italian preparations. If you're in the mood for linguine scampi, salmon Florentine or a meatball sandwich, this restaurant will cater to your needs. The eatery makes a good venue for private events, and also offers catering services.
If you are ready to enjoy old-time quality and magnificent barbecue, give this casual restaurant a try. Obviously, barbecued beef and pork are the main attractions, but the regulars insist that many other items are also worth the trip. Both the fried shrimp and the chicken-fried steak have earned equal popularity, making this the perfect dining spot even when all the members of your party are not in the mood for barbecue.
Escapade 2001 is a sizzling nightclub having some of the best events themed parties in town. Besides being a popular nightspot, it also hosts concerts by top notch bands and upcoming musicians. Local, regional and national talents have performed here and the place has also been used as a venue. When you're at the Escapade party, all you can think about is having the time of your life and enjoying the vibrant ambiance.
This neighborhood restaurant in a tiny, seedy-looking strip center has some of the best Vietnamese in a town where Vietnamese restaurants are almost as common as taquerias. The restaurant itself, though nothing fancy, is sparkling clean. Their vermicelli and rice dishes are wonderful, but make sure to try some of the more exotic dishes like eel. Don't skip the crispy egg rolls with fresh lettuce, basil and cilantro to wrap it in—the fish sauce for dipping is savory and usually not too sweet. The $4 lunch special draws a crowd. For those not as adventurous, there are Chinese options as well. - JoAnn Takasaki
The decor in Doyle's of Oak Forest is modest and casual with the feel of a German Hill Country cafe. Families particularly enjoy the comfortable atmosphere and the "home-cooking" focus of the menu. New pasta dishes are creating quite a stir, and the traditional lasagna and pizzas are as popular as ever. Every order is accompanied with baskets of garlic bread laden with butter. With reasonable pricing your wallet certainly won't suffer and you're sure to help yourself to multiple helpings of these savory meals.
The place is completely rustic, right down to the wooden floors inside. A lot of pride is apparent in the Texas-style cooking. The delicious smell of roasting meat is definitely for the carnivorous. Slaw and beans are available if you happen to be a vegetarian but you might change your diet if you inhale the aroma too long.
The strip center location with its orderly interior reminiscent of a cafeteria,may not sound appealing, but the food is excellent. It is the perfect dining spot for a boisterous family outing and those more concerned with quality than atmosphere have made it a regular dining spot. Pricing is extremely modest and there is plenty of the complimentary, spicy pineapple salsa to go around. Be sure to sample a glass of the South American house wine along with your choice of South or Central American entrees.
This exclusive gentleman's restaurant and sports bar is one of Houston's grandest. The exciting and pleasurable atmosphere features beautiful hostesses and entertainers, along with exquisite food and drink. The finest cigars are also available to further enhance the experience. If you are a sports fan, sit in the bar and take in the game on a big-screen TV.
The skin on Hartz' fried chicken shatters on impact then dissolves on contact with every bite. And whatever they marinate the meat in must be the secret to keeping it moist and oh-so-tender. The meal deals come with their famous yeast rolls and a choice of two sides-including such southern classics like fried okra, pinto beans and rice, and even liver and gizzards. Don't worry-they also have the standards of creamy cole slaw, mashed potatoes, and corn too. It's fast, easy and delicious. And the good news is that there is more than one location to get that southern-fried chicken craving satisfied! - JoAnn Takasaki
