    2010 Best of Houston® Winner: Best Comfort Food Restaurant: Try the meatloaf cooked in a can served over a mound of buttery mashed potatoes. They even have fried pickles, hearty soups & fab burgers!

    Foodie Heaven right in the Houston Heights. Try the Chopped Bleu, fried pickles, Captin's Fried chicken, or Blue Crab Cake. Save room for dessert: funnel Cake or ice box lemon pie are my favorites.

    Zelko seats about 50 people and has a no reservations policy. We recommend grabbing a spot at the bar or coming in at off-peak times.

    Try the Chopped Bleu salad! It has juicy apples, pecans and red onions! Add some bacon and romaine and suddenly you have a salad that rivals your entrée.

    This place rocks. Exquisite fried chicken. Outstanding service. Looks elegant but it's casual. Hot place for a date. Say hi to your mama.

    http://ZelkoBistro.com | Jaime Zelko (ex-Exec Chef at Bistro Lancaster) & Jeb Stuart nailed the concept of a comfortable but upscale neighborhood place. A deft touch in the kitchen + great room = GO!

    foursquare users: be sure to check-in here before entering - 3G signal is very weak (perhaps because of metal roof).

    Really cool atmosphere - I dig all the hardwoods. Liked the fried chicken & the bleu cheese salad. Wine by the glass is WAY over-priced.

  • Lora B.

    The fried chicken looked amazing and hearty compared to my super tiny crab cake of the same price. Great wine selection!

    Fabulous! Bruschetta with hummus was bursting with fresh flavor. Loved loved loved the shrimp and grits. Creamed corn was savored. Will be back again.

    One of the hardest things to find in Houston is a BRUNCH on saturdays. The only harder thing to find is the actual restaurant.

    Fun, casual atmosphere with great food. We had the fried pickles, parmesan fries and bruschetta to start & all were terrific. For my entree, I had the meatloaf and it was also excellent.

    The shrimp and grits are pretty much to die for.

    The waiters were assembling their napkins and silverware over an open trash can. Left the pile of napkins on a box balanced on the trash can rim. In plain view of customers!

    This place doesn't look like much from the front, but the menu and beer/wine pairings are very well done. The food was great and this place would definitely get 5 stars!

    DO NOT get the fries... without truffle oil! OMFG. I just want to smash them against my face. And the fried chicken is slap yo' mama worthy.

    Fish tacos are so good. For the guilt factor, try the funnel cake. Well worth the calories.

    Initially felt the hostess was a bit unhelpful - and seem to only smile at people she knew.... but the food.... enjoyed by all 4 people. In a rare case - I even cleaned my plate. The fried chicken is
