What a fun and useful guide!... I highly recommend Houston Dining on the Cheap. If you are like me and eat out a lot, the cost of the book will be returned many times over when you consider all the savings you get when you eat at good but cheap places. --Ted Powers, Jewish Herald Voice, August 9, 2007
