What does it take to start up a great restaurant in Houston, TX? From storage units holding backup equipment to doors swinging open in crowded dining rooms, chefs here in H-Town answer that question every day. Put these five locations at the top of your must-eat-here list, and get ready to take a bite out of the best.

1. Papa Charlie’s Barbeque

Head on over to Rusk Street, and satisfy your appetite by the plate or the pound. Papa Charlie’s serves up this beloved Texas tradition in all its slow-smoked glory. Just follow the irresistible aroma to downtown’s favorite barbecue joint, and chow down on mouthwatering brisket, ribs, and sausage.

2. Da Marco

Yes, you can get incredible Italian in Houston, TX. Whether you’re in the mood for a casual lunch or romantic dinner, this Montrose location just southwest of downtown serves wonderfully authentic Tuscan classics. Come for the potato gnocchi or the duck with grapes and saba, and come prepared to be impressed.

3. Xochi

If you like the idea of dining on something prepared by the latest winner of the James Beard Best Chef Southwest Award, stop by Chef Hugo Ortega’s place at the downtown Marriott Marquis. From rich mole sauces to tlayudas-styled tacos, every dish pays homage to Oaxacan cuisine.

4. Goode Company Seafood

The best Gulf Coast seafood available satisfies hungry souls at this Katy Freeway landmark. The Goode family’s venerable reputation is well-served with seasonal specialities like fresh red snapper and customer favorites like bacon-wrapped grilled shrimp.
