This is by far one of my favorite places to eat! It is not unusual to walk into a packed house on a workday afternoon. The store has an orange and white roof, which should help you find it. If I thought my heart could handle it,I would eat here daily! It is the perfect combination of melty cheese, piping hot meat, and golden grilled onions! Or you can go for authentic and get a Philly with cheese-wiz. The bread they use is specially ordered and shipped to them. It has a nice crust on the outside and is soft and delicious on the inside! Their fries are always hot and perfect! They have a light batter on the outside and just look great, and are perfectly seasoned. They have chicken sandwiches and burgers too, but the owner says that 90% of their sales are a form of their FAMOUS Philly!Free refills on the fountain drink machine! Always a good thing!Price point is about $10-$11 to make your taste buds smile. It is totally worth in every now and then (or weekly if you are like me and love a good Philly Cheesesteak.I consider myself to be a bit of a Philly connoisseur, and this place has the BEST I HAVE EVER EATEN!
Catherine’s latest venture, Café Brussels is a great new addition to the Heights. Try the Tartare de Saumon dressed with a zesty Belgian country vinaigrette accompanied by a Belgian draft beer or glass (bottle!) of wine. You can’t go wrong requesting Catherine’s favorite mussel dish for a main course, Belgian classic, Moules Marinières, accompanied by a large serving of golden Belgian Fries. The large and succulent mussels are steamed to perfection and portion sizes are very generous! My dining companion enjoyed le Petit Pavé de Bruxelles, a perfectly cooked steak and le Cordon Bleu. Be sure to leave room for one of Café Brussels fabulous desserts! Catherine's crepes are among my favorites.Catherine Duwaz is both a good friend and a genuinely nice person. It brings me great pleasure to see a friend continue to succeed in a town that can be unforgiving to restaurateurs. Cafe Brussels is our new "go-to" place in Houston for great Belgian food. And to top it all off, the prices are very reasonable for the quality and the portions sizes are generous.
We decided on the Villagio & couldn't be happier! The venue is clean, spacious, and simply elegant. We had our ceremony and reception here. Trish, owner & overall planner, is prompt, thorough, charismatic and easy to work with. The venue is tucked away at the end of a street, with private parking & far from the street. There are inside/outside room options, but the trademark is a beautiful spiral staircase for a grand bridal entrance! The package we chose was the Ultimate II. This package comes with everything except the DJ and videographer so we didn’t have to worry about hiring various vendors for each part of our wedding. Trish already has a strong vendor selection. Our package came with food, cake, linens, floral arrangements, photo booth, lighting, photography, 2 HPD officers, and a wedding coordinator. We paid extra for drapery and it was beautiful. The caterers allowed us to test the food in a prior meeting so we can give them very specific details. Mr. & Mrs. King 08/12/2016
This restaurant reopened since the end of Jan.2013 because of the ownership changes. Every dishes totally different with previous. Simple menu but fresh and delicious. Main menu : 15 kinds of fresh sushi roll(except raw fish) , Teriyaki, Homemade Dumpling, Fresh Salad and Daily Special with the unbeatable price. I am office lady has to work 5 days, so that do not have enough time cook for my family, when I been here at first time I had loved here, 'cause whatever I bought for my family, they ate all of them and even asked for next time order. Sushi roll, Teriyaki, Salad and Dumpling we tried all. Here is the best one I knew in Katy, yummy and health food with acceptable price, strongly recommend!! Promise if you try, and you couldn't forget it!!
We visited the Vertskebap in Spring, Texas on July 1, 2015 at the recommendation of a co-worker. A gentleman by the name of Cederick took our order and also offered great suggestions regarding the sauces, etc to put on our meal to enhance the experience. Everyone including Cederick was super friendly and all three of us, my wife, myself and our son, all voted 5 out of 5 stars and a definite new restaurant on our palate of dining choices. The food is fresh, wholesome, and is healthy. Lots of fresh vegetables, the meat choices come in beef, lamb and chicken and the sauces are made homemade they said every day, right in the store. A definite recommend, you have to try it - you will be hooked.
The sushi was nothing special, the menu is very limited, and the atmosphere reminds of a food truck. But my rating is more reflective of the service than the actual food. I will never go back, not because the sushi was bad. But because I don't like when my server refuses to let me pay my bill without ordering more food when I only have a credit card and didn't meet the $15 minimum by 90 cents, then telling me "well tell Mama that" when I tell her I'm not going to order another roll. Mama is the older lady who owns the place, I'm assuming, by the way. And yes, there was a sign about the minimum. Did I see it before I ordered? No, because it was in small font and behind me.
I went with my family on March 2nd 2008. I have been before and remember the wonderful steak. The service in the past was good, not "Emeril good" but good. They were extremely slow with drink refills, taking about 40 minutes and asking 3 times for some iced tea. I would think if they were out, it wouldn't take more than 10 minutes to make more. Maybe they had to go down to the store and buy some, I don't know. The after dinner coffee was cold and weak. The steak was wonderful as usual, as were the sides and the wine. It was not a busy night. I am not sure why the service was so poor. If the service wasn't an issue, I'd probably rank this restaurant very good.
