I travel to Houston on business and I love all things spicy. Someone recommended this place because they have a "bucket of destruction" available upon request. The bucket is filled with all kinds of hot sauces. Not all of them are really hot but each one has fantastic flavor. I went to dinner with 4 colleagues that didn't like spicy... More

Living in a city like Houston, we have lots of places to dine and a large percentage of these places specialize in burgers or, at least, burgers comprise a large percentage of the menu options. One such place is Backyard Grill. Backyard Grill serves up a nice selection of food and burgers are one of the restaurant’s go- to items.... More

I have grown up in this area and never experienced this place except once; which means I need to keep coming back! I got the Cypress burger and was it stellar! Full all meat patty with avocado, tomato, & red onion on a jalapeño bun! Such a delish & filling burger. You don't even need the side but I did... More

My business colleague and I stopped for a quick lunch on a recent business trip to Houston. The decor is rustic and pleasant, the food was good and the service was excellent.

My husband and I were on a way to a meeting and decided to grab something to eat. We stopped here solely because of the restaurant's location to our destination. The ambiance is a little country with a big tree in the middle. My husband kept asking what I suggested and the waitress overheard me tell him that it was... More

When the location we visited changed ownership, we were very disappointed and did a grave injustice to the 'old' owner. The other day I passed by the location on Jones road and my face lit up once again; we found it! I had no idea they had two locations! We ate there last night and it was just as good... More

Came here for dinner on Labor Day, because my sister in law suggested this spot. She has been coming to this restaurant for years she said. I got the blackened catfish with green beans and it was super yummy! The green beans were fresh and the fish was nicely seasoned. I will definitely be coming back here to try more... More

This is a great, casual, family- friendly restaurant. We've been eating here for years and I've never had anything bad. I love their burgers and fajitas. Try the snake it burger- good stuff.
