    The Captain's Chicken (inspired by Captian Crunch himself 😜) really stood out to me! Their rosemary bread is also hard to put down!!

    The steak, the cheese plate, the Captin's chicken, and the Rail Dog are all good.

    The Karbach Rail Dog does not get as much attention as the yummy Captin's Chicken, but it is filling akaushi deliciousness!

    The $30 steak was cooked to absolute perfection and was very fairly priced given the high quality. It needs no steak sauce, but the included steak sauce was flippin’ fantastic.

    The shrimp and grits are pretty much to die for.

    Tack on a giant plate of chef Jamie Zelko's infamous cereal-crusted Captin's Fried Chicken, shrimp and cheddar grits, and brioche French toast and your lazy Sunday just got a little bit lazier. Read more

    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!

    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.

    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.

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

    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!

    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.

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

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

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