Great place for food and dessert

I think we panicked them a bit when we walked in at 9:00 on a Friday night with 26 people. However, they seated us quickly and made us feel welcome. The food is wonderful. It had been 4 years since I had been there and it was everything I remembered it to be. Great food and even better pie. Bayou... read more

I arrived in Houston in 1972 and found the House of Pies on Wertheimer Rd. What a delight and a fantastic range of delicious pies. My favorite then and now is Blueberry Pie. It has remained the same and has a wonderful selection. Great breakfast and lunch too,.

On my recent visit to Houston, I stumbled by House of Pies during one of my walks and decided to go in. The wait staff didn't even acknowledge the first 5 minutes of my existence and then someone came by and asked me if I was ready to place the order without bothering to check if I had given a...

First, The food and the pies are great. Unfortunately, I won't be able to go back. My husband is in a wheelchair and when we tried to go today, the only seating available was booths. There is an entire section of the restaurant that has tables but that section was closed. A person who is wheelchair dependent is not able... More

Good food, lively atmosphere, mixed crowd and sassy (yep polite) servers. The menu is extensive but at 2 am everything sounds good. Just go!

If you are from the Houston area it is the law that you have to eat here when you go home to visit. I started going there when I was in high school. Now I'm in my late 30's, and no longer live there. The coffee and Bayou Goo make me feel like I'm a kid again.

The food here is excellent diner fare and I eat here quite often. Thank goodness the fire did not wipe out this local landmark. But you really should be coming here for the pies. I have not had a bad one yet and still working my way thru the menu. If you're in the area, take time out for some... More

Great food. Patty melt on herb bread is my fav. Does breakfast all day, too. Really good food, reasonable prices and generous servings. Full service restaurant as well as lots of varieties of fresh homemade type pies. A Houston tradition. Don't miss this!

Wow. From the perfect 1960s decor to the menu, the service, the other clientele - this gorgeous and well-established restaurant is the genuine article and we loved it. And that was even before the food came out! We were on our way to a Rockets game so needed to eat early, and didn't want anything too heavy. Plus of course... More
