“Nice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

Friendly and professional staff in a laid back setting. A great salad bar that makes it hard for you to leave room for your steak. The steak itself: the best steak I've ever had. (Possibly equaled by those at Pappas Bros.)
High marks all around.

“Good food and outstanding Christmas decor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Taste of Texas is a family favorite especially during the Christmas season. The rib eye and filet are excellent. There is a nice salad bar that is noteable for its' fruit, cheeses, and 3 types of fresh bread. The Christmas decor is memorable, with great photo ops inside and out. They give you a free dessert and commemorative photo on your birthday. The wait time between Thanksgiving and Christmas usually exceeds one hour.

“Buttery Prime Rib”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

Always a good meal here. It is top notch on every item, but expensive. The wait staff always ask if you are there celebrating something, because it is a special occasion place. I've been lucky enough to go on business expense several times. Everything is always good. Favorites: filet, prime rib, salad bar, and bread.

“Friendly atmosphere, more than you can eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

Excellent salad buffet; friendly, family but busy/noisy atmosphere (compared to others like Pappas' bros).

Steaks are huge; you can go in the back to select your own (esp. for first time visitors).
Good value for money.

“Salad, starters, steaks, shrimp, sides, sweets all top notch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Went to the Taste of Texas for a team lunch. Bit of a treat. They are so popular that they normally do not take reservations and also do not really have separate dining rooms, but for us they had prepared a long table for about 20 people in a narrow corner of the restaurant which did give us the privacy we preferred for the event. The food was just outstandingly good, and the service very much on top of things in a relaxed way with special attention for newcomers to the restaurant including lots of explanations and a photo taken with cowboy hats and bandana for keeps. Salad, starters, steaks, shrimp, sides, sweets all top notch.

I have not been to all steakhouses in Houston, which is nigh imposible, but I am glad to say this is surely the best one I have been to (and I have been to some good other ones too).
