Taste of Texas is one of our go-to restaurants when we want to celebrate something. It has that air of being special but not being over-the-top fancy. (Some people do wear shorts when they go there.) I love their rib-eye steak, one of the best I've ever tasted. They know how to cook and season their steaks just right. The... More

We come back once a year at least for a family dinner. The best steaks I've tasted anywhere, fabulous service, good salad bar and decent wine list with a reasonable markup. Pity about the long long wait for a table, but always worth it!

Wow, you can pick your own steak. The shrimp was good. The do it yourself salad bar. Homemade rolls. It was just a great experience and the food was good too. We did a lunch and the portions are just about right. Not too much and not too little. One of the best places in Houston

If you just want to taste some superb prime rib and excellent salad bar, the Taste of Texas in Houston, TX is the place to go. We enjoyed the salad bar very much especially the variety of rolls. The prime rib was very succulent and tender and the baked yam was delicious.. The ambiance is uniquely Texan with great artifacts.... More

Even if this isn't the best steak you have ever had, it is sooooo good you won't care. Everything delicious! Salad bar with all sorts of breads....fabulous! You won't be disappointed in the food or the service. Because it is so fantastic if you don't get there early, you will have to wait. It opens at 3:30 by full by... More

I had eaten at Taste of Texas before, as I make fairly frequent trips to Houston on business, so I decided to it this time. I went there on a Tuesday evening for dinner with one of my colleagues, and the restaurant was quite crowded. We had a 20 minute wait for our table (no reservations allowed!), but even the... More

Made a late-evening visit to Taste of Texas after arriving late into Houston. Still, there were many restaurant patrons - a great sign. The facility was nicely furnished and steak house comfortable. Our server, Rachel Y., did a nice job giving us a menu tour and suggesting beer and wine accompaniments to our meals. On Rachel's recommendation, I enjoyed the... More

Everyone enjoyed the steaks; they were perfectly cooked - very good salad bar with a wide selection of salad fixings, cheeses and bread. Friendly servers; be sure to order your red wine at room temp - otherwise it will be served to you chilled (unusual practice but was fixed without too long of a wait). The place is almost like...

You expect great steaks and that's exactly what you get. Superb cuts of beef cooked well and not over cooked. The salad bar has wide ranges and is well presented. Service is very good, nothing is too much trouble. Atmosphere is lively and friendly. A great place for all the family, we had 3 kids under 9, 2 more teenagers... More

I am a Texan through and through and the steak I had was so tender and juicy it was the best! Service was great and the atmosphere was spot on I am definitely coming back soon.
