I'll based my assessment of this coffee shop on my actual experience. When I went here, they served me really well and I can say that they love what they do. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 6/17/2013

The Best Old School Diner/Truck Stop Resturant 9/14/2011

I wanted to go to this place because it reminded me of the truck stops from when I was a little girl. I went in & it had the same look of the old truck stops & highway diners that you would see up & down IH35!!!!! Then I got my food & it was some seriously off the chain food!!!!! I love it~love it~love it!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is my new favorite resturant & I will have to stay away because if I don't I will be there everyday & will be bigger than a house & plus my diet will not allow it but once a month!!!!! So when I go there I will have to workout even harder afterwards!!!!!!! LoL!!!!! more

bad experience 5/23/2011

pupose. left tip on table,+ was charge on ticket for tip+ bad experience, and yes it was done on purpose. she was going to keep the change $16.10 out of $100-for a bill of 83.90 with $10.94 gratuity already included. $10 tip already left at table. waited a table for more than 10 min for her. had to go to register and ask for copy of receit, and ask her personally for my change, wich she only returned $12 out of $16.10. $10 tip at table+ $10.94 included in ticket + $4.10 which she did not return. for a dine in of $72.96+$10.94 gratuity included. something like that had never happened to me before. more

It's a coffee shop, folks 5/22/2011

Dot's is a Houston's original, a throwback to the great coffee shops in Times Square that offer huge sandwiches and mouth-watering cheesecake. The goal of this restaurant is to provide you with tasty, filling food that is reasonably priced. It never fails. The service can be touch and go but the people watching while you wait makes the trip worthwhile. To-go orders are handled fairly quickly and you can torment yourself looking at the huge desserts in the display case while you wait. This restaurant dares not list calorie counts - the numbers would be too shocking. Most entrees are good, and a few are great. Take a risk - order something you're craving - you are bound to be pleasantly surprised. And for the youngsters out there - Dot's is a coffee shop in the traditional sense.Good coffee served and a lunch menu/desserts offered. This place was making money long before we decided we just had to have specialty coffees from a ""coffee shop."" more

Best Ever! 1/12/2011

DOT Rest. 7/19/2010

This was a great place. First time I have been there and the food, service was just great. more

Definitely worth the trip 1/5/2010

After researching several all night restaurants in Houston, I finally decided that Dot's Coffee Shop looked the most promising. I drove there tonight at 1:00 and arrived at about 1:30. The restaurant is on the feeder road of I-45, very close to the Gulfgate Shopping Center. I am from the Baytown area and, as such, it was a fairly lengthy drive, but I do not at all regret my visit. The food was terrific, and the service was even more impressive. I will definitely return. Pros: Fantastic food, friendly customer service, great location Cons: None.. except maybe its distance from my home more

Best hashbrowns anywhere. 11/8/2006

This place is great, the portions are great, and the food is delicious, and the price is very reasonable. It just isn't a good vacation if i don't visit this place atleast twice a week while im there. I've visited several states and countries and still haven't found better hashbrowns, and the omlets are among the best i've had.\r Pros: 24 Hrs., portions, value, and ambiance. Cons: There's nothing like this in Washington. more

Not that good 10/6/2005

You'd think this place would be off the hook, but you'd be wrong. I've been serveral times mainly in the evening hours. Service tended to be slow on all counts and the food seemed just like or a little worse than i hop in some cases. Seek other options. more

MY college hang-out 6/12/2003

I love this place! It's so clean and almost like stepping back into time. I used to eat here when I was a student at UH. Good times! Pros: 24 hours Cons: Gulf Freeway location more

Ambiance 5/3/2003

If you want something faithful to the American dinner car ""Dinner"" experience (long and narrow), waiters in white shirts, that is the closest thing to a classic dinner eating experience. People born and raised in New York and New Jersey will feel at home.... just like being back in the old neighborhood. more

Typical Pappa's 8/7/2002

Like all pappa's restaurants, the food is plentiful, and of high quality. The hash browns are the best in Houston. Pros: portions, service, value Cons: diner atmosphere, location more

  • Dot Coffee Shop has been a Houston institution since 1967. Dot was the first of many restaurants from the Pappas brothers. It all started in downtown Houston off of Main Street and the tradition continues today on the Gulf Freeway. We offer yummy comfort food 24 hours a day 7 days a week. We never lock our doors.

    Dot serves up mom's favorites, made from scratch every day. Beyond the short waits and leisurely service are large helpings of affordable home-style breakfast specialties, biscuits, omelets, pancakes and much more. Comfort food and burgers top a list of lunch and dinner favorites, including chicken fried steak, pot roast and meat loaf. Coffee lovers rejoice with our strong, no-frills java, and the apple, strawberry and pecan pie slices can't be missed. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Dine-in and to-go available.
