Best Restaurants in Houston, TX

friends toasting at dinner

You may find great eats in Pasadena and Pearland, but Houston restaurants are truly in a league of their own. Whether you’re in the mood for a white tablecloth dining experience or a good old-fashioned deli, we’ve got you covered with our picks for the best restaurants in Houston, TX.

La Griglia

As one of the top Italian restaurants in Houston, TX for nearly three decades, La Griglia is an award-winning dining experience that takes you on a culinary adventure from Tuscany to Roma. You’ll find this local favorite at 2002 West Gray Street and while customers rave about the fantastic hospitality, the fresh and flavorful menu is the real star of the show. Try the citrus-lacquered salmon with pancetta or an eggplant parmigiana with homemade pasta, and don’t forget to ask about the extensive wine list for a great pairing.

State Of Grace

Want to enjoy a world-class American restaurant without all the stuffiness that comes with fine dining? State of Grace is an award-winning restaurant at 3258 Westheimer Road, led by the incredible mind of Chef Bobby Matos. This Houston restaurant has a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and there’s always something interesting to try on the menu. Experience the butter burger for an indulgent lunch or pick up some perfectly seared scallops and blue crab hush puppies for a taste of the sea.

Kenny and Ziggy’s

A beloved tradition in Houston and Baytown area, Kenny and Ziggy’s brings that authentic New York deli experience to 2327 Post Oak Boulevard. Drop by for a breakfast of Challah French Toast or try the smoked salmon bagel sandwich. And if you want a great sandwich with generous portions, the pastrami on rye makes for a hearty lunch. Just make sure you don’t leave without taking home a slice of their famous cheesecake!


Named after the Goddess of Flowers, Xochi shares the culinary traditions of Oaxaca with Houston foodies. Stop by 1777 Walker Street to explore the bold and diverse menu, which offers everything from gluten-free to vegan options. We recommend the rich Angus Bistec con Mole or the crispy goat tacos for something new. And if you have a sweet tooth, the chocolate and dessert menus will blow you away with delicacies like the Piedras y Oro tart with gold and Pastel de Queso Fresco with salted caramel popcorn.
