The Most Popular Restaurants in Houston

 Looking for a place to eat while visiting the beautiful city of Houston, Texas? Well, you are in luck! Here are a few of Houston’s highest rated and most frequented restaurants.

 Pappas Bros. Steakhouse

Looking for some fine dining and a great steak? Check out this upscale steakhouse. While a little bit on the pricier end of the scale, Pappas Bros. garners consistently high ratings and makes the top ten lists of numerous patrons. Though of course their steaks are their most popular dishes, they are also known for their wine selection and their dessert, especially the cheesecake. If you’re looking for fine dining in Houston, look no further than here!


Brought to Houston from Austin, this Japanese restaurant is highly praised among the Houston locals and visitors. Their sushi dishes are considered some of the best around, and their sake selection is well-regarded. Although another somewhat expensive option, the richness of the dish flavors and the countless options will no doubt satisfy your hunger. They even offer a ten-course chef’s selection of sushi, if you cannot make up your mind! They offer other traditional Japanese dishes aside from sushi, as well.


Famous for its Latin American (particularly Mexican) food, Hugo’s is beloved in Houston. Slightly cheaper than the previous mentions, their exotic Latin flavors will entice anyone into handing over their money. Their brunch and churros are particularly loved, if customer reviews on websites such as TripAdvisor and Yelp are anything to go by. This Mexican restaurant is not to be missed during a visit to Houston!

 Torchy’s Tacos

If you’re looking for Mexican food but wary of spending the money, check out Torchy’s Tacos. Their prices tend to be under $10, and their funny dish names make the experience even better. Customers say you cannot skip out on their chips and queso, and their multitude of tacos are all delicious. They even have vegetarian options, for those who may need or want it.


Being so close to the Mexican border, it is difficult to avoid good Latin American food in any part of Texas—and why would you want to? For another somewhat upscale Mexican food experience, check out Xochi. Not only is the food delicious, but customers rave about the open layout of the restaurant and say that the inside is beautiful. The restaurant is hyped consistently by local food critics.

 Jackson Street Barbecue

Another one of the most popular restaurants in Houston serves a Texan delicacy, of course, barbecue. Though there are many highly rated fine dining barbecue restaurants in Houston, for something more affordable but still delicious, Jackson Street Barbecue is the place to go. Brisket, often considered the signature dish of Texas, receives high praise from patrons of the restaurant. Their prices are in the $10 to $30 range, which is typical for good quality barbecue. If good smoked meat for a good price is your desire, this is the place to go.

Houston is an amazing place with flavors upon flavors scattered around the town. In truth, you would be hard pressed to find bad restaurants in this city. This list is only the beginning of the fantastic food Houston has to offer.
