Re: Texas: your favorite places and things to do

Flying into Houston tomorrow night for a few nights to catch a couple Dbacks vs Astros games. Any recommendations for good bbq in that area? Based on a very quick search I'm looking at The Pit Room or Ray's BBQ Shack, but am open to about anything.

Fwiw, my airbnb is right beside Minute Miad Park and I won't have a car. I'd like to avoid a $100 round trip Uber ride to somewhere too far away if I can help it.

Thanks for any tips.

EC for TexMex try Ninfa's its near your place. I hate Houston because of its sprawl, so the best bbq may be a long ride, not $100 long, but still long. The Pit Room seems like a solid choice.

Best bbq I can vouch for is Tejas Chocalate Factory, but it is far away from your spot.

Just now saw your reply. Thanks for the recommendation. Ended up at Rays BBQ Shack for lunch today. I thought it was good. Had brisket, sausage, turkey, mac & cheese, baked beans, and fried corn on the cob. Nothing was bad.

Re: Texas: your favorite places and things to do

I am a big fan of the restaurant Cured in the Pearl Brewery district. Just loads of excellent charcuterie and a sprinkling of inventive yet soulful dishes.

Mi Tierra. I dont eat a lot of texmex and this next place is a bit touristy but it was solid the last time I went 3 years ago.
