Yes their slogan, just south of hooters, is a play off of another restaurant but their food is very good.

For the vegetarian, I would recommend the Beaver Nut Burger, made of brown rice, cashews, walnuts, and cheddar, with bibb lettuce, tomato, onion house pickles and a side of miso-mustard sauce.

For the non-vegetarian, try the T.B.L.T, made of all natural smoked turkey, thick cut bacon, swiss, bibb lettuce, onion and chipolte mayo on a pecan cranberry bread. It comes with bacon cheddar mashed potatoes and green bean casserole.

Both of them were very good and served quickly by our waitress.

Don't let the name discourage you from eating here as their menu is diverse for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians and they support local farmers and producers.

Cocktail menu is amazing and really well executed, food was simple (we had off the smoker) but real tasty and lots of it. Our waiter was great, fun and knowledgeable and seemed to enjoy working there, which is a good sign. We only had one night in Houston, and although not the best meal of the trip I would not hesitate going back. Felt like a place you could make your home!

Get the beaver nut burger, mac and cheese, any breakfast item, and just about any drink. Great place to take visitors to Houston! Unique, flavorful, and laid-back.

"Bearver's, just south of Hooters." With a slogan like that and a raunchy menu to boot ("[--]-burn wings" etc.), this palace was a must after we first moved to Housotn. The building is tucked away, and very unassuming with a terrible parking lot. They do offer valet, but we somehow managed to squeeze into a parking spot and reverse our way out of the lot (literally drove backwards out of the lot, because there is no turn-around room) without any dings. Phew!
The atmosphere was very laid back, as we're the servers. This doesn't mean that they were rude, quite the contrary. Our waiter offered some great recommendations, and made sure our drinks were always filled. Speaking of drinks, they have and incredible bar, with a lot of unique drinks.
Now, on to the food. We started off with the smoked wings, and they were lick-your-fingers good! The entrees to follow didn't disappoint. My partner had the Smoker's Sampler, and couldn't stop raving about it. I had the Sloppy Sandwich, with North Carolina style (vinegar soaked) pork, and it was jus the right amount of vinegar (not overwhelming).
I would highly recommend this place if your looking for a laid back atmosphere with good and unique drinks and/or food.

Very original cocktails that are not just good, but great! The appetizers hit the spot. And the meals were truly original. Everyone made you feel at home - especially Mike mixing it up behind the bar. One of those places that just seems like you belong there!
