If you've never been, Railroad Cafe has roughly 10 tables, including one in a semi-private alcove by the kitchen. For several years, it was my preferred eatery in the northeast Houston suburbs. It was my favorite place to take friends and family for a great meal, terrific service, and a wonderful overall experience. I knew the chef/owner and his family by name, and could call ahead to reserve my favorite table (front, by the window) and to discuss any special requests.
Dinner at Railroad Cafe was not a hurried affair. It was a relaxing, almost luxurious event. While not extensive, wine selections were wonderful and every course delectable. Sadly, after moving away for a couple of years, I returned and found the same chef/owner, the same service and smiles from his wife, but the cuisine had gone downhill. The three-course dinner was one disappointment after another and not worth what I paid for myself and my guests.
Having said that, given its former glory, I'll soon return to Railroad Cafe and hope my last visit was on an "off night." We need good options in Humble, and I'd sincerely like Railroad Cafe to be on my list of favorites again.
