It's an experience to go there. Treebeards is one of a few restaurants in town that I bring out of town guests. The atmosphere is good and they have great food (love the gumbo--and good gumbo is hard to find in Houston). I also know that they do a lot for the community, which is a major plus in my book.

This place is only open for lunch on weekdays... so it's a good spot if you just got out of jury duty :) or if you work downtown!

Hopefully you'll be there on a day when they have macaroni and cheese. Try not to eat too much :)

Treebeards on the street and in the tunnel are great. We use them as our lunchroom. There can be a line at noon but it is well worth the wait. Take out is convenient and their catering service is second to non. Anyone can find something excellent to eat for lunch. Highly recommend this most wonderful establishemnt!

I used to work downtown, Treebeards was a regular lunch destination. At least once a week.

The food is mostly Cajun style, but they have a good enough mix to usually make anyone happy.

Worth a stop if you are in the downtown area. I always loved the Red Beans & Rice with a Link.
Made for a VERY filling lunch at a very reasonable price.

Treebeards is a great lunch spot; they have really good blackened fish, gumbo, and too many southern dishes to mention. Price is reasonable and it is quick cafeteria style so you can get in and out. But the food is cafeteria style...so it can sometimes feel like it was made for the masses. All in all a good place if you're downtown to grab a bite.
