Houston has more than 8,000 restaurants (that’s not a misprint). People here love eating out, and the array of options is overwhelming, from lowly fast food to lofty haute cuisine. Visitors and residents benefit from the city’s enormous international population, offering authentic fare from all corners of the globe, including specific regional styles not found in most mid-sized cities.
This being Texas, the options also include a fair number of home-grown varieties, including some of the state’s finest barbecue, Tex-Mex, and good ol’ fashioned down-home Southern cookin’.
