    The few times I've been to Houston, this is a stop I make. It wasn't as good as it has been all the way around. The food, service, and the menu all were lacking. It's been much better.

    This spot is an institution for a reason. I've literally never had a bad item here, from salads to milkshakes, delicious eggs Benedict, and yummy coffee. Plus super friendly service!

    This diner is classic, and it's great. The burger with the egg on it is oh-so-messy but oh-so-tasty.

    Get the omelets. Excellent, large, cheap and served hot. If you add jalapeños ask for the fresh kind instead of canned to keep your omelet from tasting like nachos.
