I got stuck in Houston on a Friday night and checked out TA reviews. Pappas was the top restaurant near by and for good reason. i got there about 7:00 and it was packed. I found a spot at the bar and had the fried oysters. They were the perfect blend of crispy and moist, very fresh tasting. A couple next to me was back for their second night in a row of sharing a plate of them and they were very pleased as well. The bar staff was busy but the service was fine. i would definitely visit Pappas again the next time I'm in Houston.
