Heights – New Eateries

Heights – one of the most eccentric areas of Houston. A mix of antique and modern, history and warmth, never ending charm. This area has everything and is in the Heart of Houston. Close to everything and seemingly in its own world in more ways than one. You really don’t have to leave the Heights because you can find it all here, and if you want to support LOCAL then this is the place to go. Mom & pop shops and restaurants, there is never a dull moment. The Heights is ever changing and welcomes some new hot spots that are a MUST!!

BB’s Cafe on 6th and Studewood (bbscafe.com ) is the newest cajun eatery in the Heights. This is their 4th location with plans of expanding even more. My favorite items on the menu are: Tex-Cajun Virgin fries, the name doesn’t roll off the tongue at all but being a french fry connoisseur this is amazing. Its french fries topped with queso, gravy and succulent roast beef, its an appetizer but its very filling and a great way to start the meal. Not a fry lover? Try the Chalmette Macaroni – jalapeno cheesy macaroni topped with gravy and roast beef. Another concoction your taste buds have never experienced!! Of course gumbo is never a bad choice, especially not from here, its tasty, filling and made with a dark rue for a richer taste. There are 3 sizes to choose from, I can’t ever seem to order anything other than Medium. You can never go wrong either with several choices of po’ boy’s for lunch or a combo of soup and sandwich. I am not a big fan of chicken but if its fried or drenched in gravy I am down! The Tuesday Special – is pecan crusted chicken with pepper cream sauce served with salad and chalmette macaroni – to die for! The chicken is cooked perfectly so its juicy yet crunchy with the pecan crust and the cream sauce is just mouth watering. This place is not only delicious, its priced well, good quality and service is always great.

Carter & Cooley Co. on historic and legendary 19th Street brings you a blast from the past. Walk into a 1921 built restored drug store in the Heights main street. This street takes you back and there are a ton of cute shops and places to eat that are super cute and great for people watching. Come down on Heights 1st Saturday to do a free walking/tram tour to see what’s new. Known for their sandwiches, choose from tons of options & my favorites are: Italian and Meatloaf. The Italian has my favorite ingredients, the best Italian deli meats and sauces on fresh bread and home made meatloaf is juicy and very filling. Their menu changes so be sure to try something new each time. Prices are low, service is fast. For more information visit their website – carterandcooley.com
