I just returned from a week visit in Humble, Texas. I’ve always thought that Texas, specifically the Houston area, is a restaurant Mecca. The roads are lined with a plethora of fast food joints, family owned eateries, and more. It’s hard to decide what to eat, but I know for sure you’ll never Humble.
We had a busy week, between throwing up a last minute Cookie Buffet for my sister’s birthday party, and food tastings for my mom’s upcoming milestone birthday, I can’t say I had much time, or room to wander Houston’s food scene. I did however manage to eat, and drink at a few great spots.
I’m not the biggest barbeque fan but dinner at Spring Creek Barbeque was great! This neighborhood restaurant on FM1960 in Atascocita offers up barbequed meats at generous portions and a self serve bar of sides that include delicious potato salad, cole slaw, green beans, and more. Not to mention the unending yeast rolls delivered to your table fresh from the oven. I had their marbled beef brisket, it was melt in your mouth goodness. Good food and friendly staff, this barbeque joint is definitely worth a visit next year.
I love a good cheeseburger! I’m always in search of a good burger joint. I’m not a burger snob and don’t care about ambiance as long as I get a great burger. From fast food to gourmet burgers I’ll try them all. My recent favorite fast food burger is from In and Out, last week I had my first cheeseburger at Five Guys. It was love at first bite! This tasty greasy burger definitely filled my needs. Is it healthy? I’m certain it’s not, but it sure tasted great. The fries were good too! For the price of about $5 for a small cheeseburger it’s well worth it. I will surely be back there next summer.
For some home style Italian dining we headed to Italiano’s in Humble. This busy restaurant serves up Italian comfort food such as Canelloni, Pizzas, Parmagiano, and more. The generous portions, moderate prices (lunch comes with a salad and starts at $5.95), and friendly staff puts this on our list of places to eat when we’re in town.
For late night drinks in a laid back place The Tasting Room in King’s Harbor is the place to go. The out door seating overlooking Lake Houston is a great place to hang out and chat over some good wine. This wine cafe also serves up tempting dishes, but we were too full to try any this time around. Their peach sangria was yummy.
Proof Rooftop Lounge is a great bar scene. Located in Houston this rooftop venue has comfortable seating, pours great drinks, offers a nice menu, has dancing, and a great view of the Houston skyline. The atmosphere is definitely vibrant. A must visit when in town.
