The goofy "Hungry's" name aside, this is a really good restaurant. We went for Sunday brunch and were so impressed with the service, menu selection and food quality. You can order traditional lunch items or extraordinary breakfast. We had the goat cheese appetizer and the...poke tuna appetizer and both were outstanding.More

I live in Texas but am original from the UK and one of my old friends flew out as we hadn’t seen each other on years, I decided to treat her to a classic Texas style meal at this place as I had eaten there...before and enjoyed it a lot! Unfortunately the cleanliness of the restaurant has gone down hill since the last time I visited, specifically in the bathroom. The toilet bowl had quite clearly not been washed in goodnesses knows how long, there was water all over the floor and appeared to be some sort of liquid in the wall. Apart from those issues we faced the overall experience was nice and food was great! 👍 I am only putting my personal review in now because one of my friend mentioned to me not long ago she had the same issue.More

We're not from Houston. Our family lives there though, and this is why my husband wanted to spend his 50th birthday there. He has Celiac Disease and cannot have gluten at all. Because of this, we are diligent about doing research before going somewhere to...eat. He also has a gluten tester called a Nima Sensor that is very accurate. We picked here because they have a gluten friendly menu. We are both aware that restaurants will never say "gluten free" mostly because it's a liability if something should happen. That being said, most of the managers have been very kind and accommodating if gluten is found, they will have their cook change gloves, and clean a small section of the grill, my hubs is happy with a chicken breast and some vegetables. Not this guy. He was bothered, short with us and dismissive. He said he couldn't guarratee anything on the menu and basically walked away, leaving my hubs with no meal and to sit there and watch everyone else eat on his 50th birthday. My husband is good natured and just sat there, hungry (ironic). By the way, my husband is also a Veteran. Worst meal ever since we find out he had Celiac. On another note, the service was terrible, the server was slow, uninformed and inattentive. Glad his family made it bearable. Just because you're a semi trendy restaurant, it doesn't give you the right to be jerks. DON'T GO HERE IF YOU HAVE A DISEASE OR FOOD ALLERGY!More

Stopped here for lunch after going to a museum in the local district. This is a convenient location near Rice University. I had the Black Bean soup and the Gyro sandwich. The service was great. Valet parking is available. The food was good, not great....Overall above average experience.More

Light and open area. Good service. Valet parking is a plus. The food appealed to all of us. Vegan options were also available.

We went this past Monday night for happy hour drinks before dinner somewhere else in the neighborhood. Being from Boston, I loved sitting outside on the upper deck on Nov 25th! The heaters weren't even on. Our server was friendly and the drink prices were...more than reasonable.More

We visited this place during lunch time. Great food with friendly and fast service. There were nice salads to sooth hot sun as well as sumptuous burger type food for the needy. Menu was vast and there were veg choices. Moderately priced also
