The Salad Bar ingredients are always fresh and includes warm bread and huge cheese rounds to help yourself. Steaks are great. It's one of my favorite restaurants in Houston.

Taste of Texas was the first of several stops on a week long resturant tour (not officially, we were just determined to try as many resturants in the Houston area as possible in a 7 day time frame). We didn't know what to expect but the place did come highly recommended. They offer a salad bar that has a pretty good variety and we enjoyed the drinks (Shiner (beer) and the Texas punch). Being that it's a steakhouse, we ordered the steak; I ordered the 6oz center cut, my boyfriend had the 16oz New York Strip. While the steaks were good (mine was very tender) the most exciting part was going to the back and being allowed to pick out our own. For the price (and forgive me but the hype), there left a little to be desired. While the quality of the steaks were superior to the majority of most chain steakhouses, the flavor was a bit dull. Bottom line - if you're in TX stop by for the experience (the servers outfits are a TX must see) but if you are a fan of marinated steaks, don't expect too much from the beef as far as flavor is concerned.

The salad bar is great, good selection. The filet with garlic butter is the best steak I've ever had. I dont live in houston but make it over there (2hour drive) at least every six weeks just to eat here. Nothing compares.

From a quiet lunch for two to a football team celebration of twenty, ToT is a great venue. The food is fresh, well-prepared and delicious and the waitstaff is even better! This family-owned Houston icon is well worth the visit and higher prices. Actually, my girlfriends & I prefer ToT for our lunch gatherings over anywhere else. For $10, their fresh salad bar, fruit & rolls and wonderful atmosphere is a bargain!

Fantastic sums up the whole experience of visiting this incredibly friendly restaurant. The staff and the food were exceptional.

No secrets in this place. You can have a guided tour of the kitchen if you so wish. You are also taken to the kitchen and asked to chose your steak once you have decided on the cut from the menu. The salad bar is all very fresh and changed regularly.

Thoroughly recommend this place. Got to be one of the best eating experiences in Texas if not the US of A.
