I've lived in Houston all my life (little over 25yrs) and I had no idea this place existed until I took a tour of the 4th Ward (DiscoverHoustonTours). It was a perfect ending to a tour of one of the oldest historic areas in Houston. This is the perfect spot to catch a glimpse of what's left of the 4th Ward. It's good 'ol Southern, home-style soul food, so if you're into the "healthy fad" and counting calories, this is not the place for you. The portions are huge, so 10 bucks covered my lunch and dinner. I had the chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes with the most flavorful brown gravy, green beans, mac n cheese, and corn bread. It was all delicious and very filling. I had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Mr. Craig Joseph, the most down-to-earth and one of the few, if not the only minority business owner on that part of the strip on W.Gray. Also, if you notice the broken sidewalk, or lack of sidewalk, don?t blame Mr. Joseph, the City of Houston should be ashamed of itself for not fixing this problem. I find it a disturbing coincidence that this minority establishment is the only one on that strip without a nice sidewalk. Visit their website (thisisithouston) for the restaurant?s brief background before you go. It will definitely enrich the experience, because this shouldn't be your typical dining experience, it should be one about culture, history, and of course, lots of good food.
Pros: good portions, flavorful food, affordable
Cons: can't think of any
