“Yum Plus!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Taste of Texas rocks - it is the best steak house I have ever been in and the service was outstanding. The wait is long, but well worth it. FYI - on your first visit, if the waiter or anyone finds out that you are a first-comer, you will have a red bandana tied around your neck for the duration! Wonderful salad bar and incredible desserts. A Must Try in Houston!

“Holiday Staff Dinner Party”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

The drinks are really good quality and quite tasty! The steaks are excellent. The lobster was sumptuous. The desserts were huge and wonderful. The service was impecable and our group of 10 can be a bit demanding. What more could you ask for?

“Best steak I've ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

This place is awesome. From the moment you walk in to the moment you leave. Particularly enjoyed the neckerchief for first time visitors! The selection and freshness of the food is second to none and the staff are attentive.

The portions are huge and tasty and I will always pay a visit the next time I'm in Houston.

One of the top 5 restaurants I've ever eaten in.

Absolutely amazing quality steaks, awesome salad bar and what appeared to be incredible desserts (diabetic, couldn't try them).

“A First Class Epicurean Delight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

This place is Texas at its best! We arrived early enough to find parking.and avoid long lines. Our greeter led us to a great table as soon as we asked to be seated. The seasonal decor was abundant but not overdone. The wait staff were exceptionally attentive and amiable. Each of us placed our orders for filet mignon and side dishes. The self-serve salad buffet was almost worth our tab all by itself. Our steaks were as rare as we'd ordered, the salad was a smorgasbord of delights, and the sides were good as well. Our only complaints were the failure of our wait staff to alert us of the restaurant's cowboy-hat traditions for first timers and the sommelier's repeated and over-eager hard sells. This isn't a place for daily dining — the food is too good — but it's a memorable place to dine on a special occasion.
