“Excellent Italian Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2012

Some of the best food in a corner strip center restaunt. The food is excellent, ambiance... not so much.

“Don't judge this book by its cover!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2012

Tucked away in a little strip mall, it's one of Houston's hidden gems. Best Italian food in town and the eggplant parm is a real specialty. I highly recommend the lobster ravioli as well. Reservations may be needed, but we have walked in on a weeknight and were seated right away. It's not fancy and you can go in casual dress and it won't make a big sent in your wallet.

“Frenchie's is a NASA institution”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2011

Frenchie's is a NASA institution and has been there 25 years+ He serves really good Italian food and Frenchie (owner) is always entertaining... The portions large with lots of fresh ingredients and pastas are rich and full of authentic Italian flavor... Luncheon specials are always good and homemade bread & sandwiches are super

With the Government shutting down the Manned Space program - I sure hope Frenchie's survives

“Great food..... It's all about the specials”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2011

From the outside you'd never know what lies within (unless you'd been told by someone else).

Frenchie's serves excellent Italian / Texan food with bold flavours and fresh ingredients.

They have 30+ specials in addition to their regular menu, so do ask what they may have.

Highly recommend this to all

“Gotta love Frenchies - Great food and history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2010

If you haven't been, its like Texas meets Italy. Big portions and heavy italian accent with your order from the owner.

This place has been around a long time, and the astronauts used to come here frequently during its heyday. There are signed pictures on the wall everywhere. The pastas are much richer and more authentic italian (lots of butter and garlic) which suits me fine!

I go frequently and always enjoy it. Ciao!
