This is the BEST place in Houston to get a steak, cooked to your perfection. I'm told they have other great food but every time I've been there I did not pass up the opportunity for one of their classic steaks. If you have a problem with ANY of you food, steak not to your exact expectations, they will replace... More

While my filet was so very tender and juicy, my favorite part of my visit was the salad bar and bread. Ohhh... I LOVED the bread. There were many salad options as well. The dessert I had was some sort of chocolate mousse and it was delightful. I would definitely recommend, but would include a price disclaimer! ;)

You want to know how great the food, service and ambiance are at Taste of Texas? On just about any given night, including weeknights, you can easily expect a 1-2 hour wait. There are NO RESERVATIONS taken but you are welcome to complimentary soft drinks and popcorn while you wait. A TIP FROM A LOCAL: Put your name down on... More

Out of all the restaurants I have been to this is my favorite. The food is outstanding and you can't beat the service. It is also decorated very Texan, so it's a great place for tourists. They don't take reservations but they have complimentary snacks and sodas while you wait and they also have a bar.

Arrive eary as they do not take reservations. The wait can be extensive but they have done a good job making your wait enjoyable---- Nice bar area, free popcorn, etc. Excellent service and food preparation. Fun atmosphere-- especially for first timers. Knowledgeable wait staff indicating rock solid training program! Pick out you own steak and cut of meat. Enjoy!

We've been going to this restaurant for years. Service has always been good, they provide snacks/drinks while you wait (if you come at one of their many busy times), salad bar is always fresh, good cheeses, bread, and the complimentary cinnamon coffee is a nice touch! My husband and son always pick out their steaks from the counter...I always leave... More

I've been to Taste of Texas three or four times in the past couple of years. They serve a white tasteless bread that has no more flavor than a slice of white Wonder bread. The salad bar sucks and the steaks are mediocre for the prices. A Though the service is acceptable, the food sucks. I got a fifty dollar... More

Great food, great service and great atmosphere. Make sure to go back to the kitchen with your server to choose your own steak.

One of my favorite Houston restaurants. Great for introducing out of town guests to excellent Texas beef and seafood.....without having to take out a 2nd mortage. Busy and service may not always be the most attentive,but the quality and taste are first rate. Try a table in the bar for faster seating.
