I found that the profiles of the restaurants I know were right on target, so I'm looking forward to trying many others which are new to me. The extensive indexes make it easy to find exactly the cuisine you're in the mood for, or the nearest affordable eats. (Get an extra copy for your car--you never know when hunger will strike while you're in an unfamiliar part of town!)
If you live in Houston, you like to eat out. With this book, you can eat someplace different every night. You'll never be bored with the same old food!
Mike has done a great job covering the big name restaurants and the small "hole in the walls". If you are in the mood for Korean, Vietnamese sandwiches, hamburgers or central Mexican, Mike has tried it all and rated the best and cheapest.
In the mood for Tex-Mex? Chinese? Middle Eastern? Ethiopian? Whatever your desire, in Houston Dining on the Cheap you'll learn where to satisfy it. The 320 restaurants profiled are listed in alphabetical order, and indexes in the back make it easy to find the type of ethnic food you want, places to try in your neighborhood, all you can eat buffets, a great breakfast or late-night meal, drive throughs, deliveries, and places with outdoor dining (a must on those beautiful spring and fall days).
Each profile includes lots of great information about the menu (with suggestions of what to order), as well as atmosphere and decor, and lots more. I've already identified several places I can't wait to try. Get your copy of Houston Dining on the Cheap and start eating your way across town.
The details and descriptions of the food and establishments you cannot find in any other Houston publication.
If I ever meet Mike, I will give him one love filled sucker punch!
What makes this book very worthwhile are accurate descriptions of the restaurants, items that each place specializes in, and their price range. I also loved the section of more expensive and better known restaurants to go to during lunch hours. Each restaurant is profiled with type of food, price range, speciality items, decor, and much more.
If you are looking for a great jumpstart to your dining adventures and you do not want to spend a great deal, this book is the way to go. Affordable dining experiences can easily be found from this book.
