Places to DINE

  • Barnaby's Cafe
    Casual high quality. Enjoy with friends.
  • Tecate Mexican Restaurant & Cantina
    Totally taqueria, without excuse, but with all the hallmarks of good dining. Great authentic food, friendly staff who are at play while at work and a experience of both comfort and satisfaction. Try it out.
  • Shade
    One of the jewels of the Heights. Good food. Good service. Great wine.
  • Prego
    Prego. This is a great spot in the Rice Village. One of a few restaurants in Houston that always hits the right note. Houston has a great Italian tradition in restaurants and this one does not disappoint.

Barbecue Inn is a treasure! But you have to get there early or be prepared to wait!

Back in the early 70's I used to make the trek over to BI with my workmates from bank on 18th almost weekly. it was awesome. Good to hear it's still up to it's old standards. Thanks for the review.

Since I work "in the neighborhood", Barbeque Inn is on our lunch rotation. I think I've been going there since about '94 and can happily report that nothing has changed. It's old-school, no-frills, delicious, and friendly.
As an ex-coworker used to say every time we went "The pie is to die for." RIP... (just kidding. He's still alive.)

Barbeque Inn actually gets their pies from Dee's Pies on Little York. They are freshly baked, but not in-house by Barbeque Inn staff.

    Places for Drinks

    • PLONK!
      A Beer and Wine Bistro North of I-10. Scott Miller's incarnation brings classy quality to Oak Forest.
    • Cantina 1308
      Another El Tiempo. This one is the best of the three. A casual neighborhood atmosphere and great fajitas. Plus the legendary 'Rita's.
    • The Boom Boom Room
      One of the few bars in the Heights, this place is clean and friendly and close to home. After just one stop, I believe it's worth another look.
