About Us

Serving the Finest Texas Hospitality since 1977

In 1977, our family opened the Taste of Texas Restaurant in Town and Country Village and welcomed our first customer in the door. In the years that followed, we survived oil booms, oil busts, moved to a new location, and have seen our Houston Astros win the World Series!

We believe the dinner table is the heart and soul of Texas, which is why we strive for excellence for each guest’s visit to the Restaurant. Nearly four decades have brought countless celebrations with your families: birthdays, graduations, engagements, anniversaries, new baby celebrations, career milestones, and retirement dinners. We are honored that you have chosen the Taste of Texas for your cherished celebrations.

We have collected a world-class Texas history museum, hosted over four hundred thousand Texas schoolchildren on Texas History Tours, and welcomed countless foreign guests who have claimed their visit here was the highlight of their trip. Our menu is translated into thirteen languages and has been circulated around the world.

Over ten thousand young people have worked at the Taste of Texas, and we consider them family. We are delighted that over forty couples have met at work here, married, and have started families of their own. We even have second generation Taste of Texas employees working with us now.

Without you, none of this would have been possible. We are always grateful to you, our precious customers.

that is why we:

  • Constantly scour the market to bring you the finest quality beef at the best value
  • Require a minimum of 42 days of age on our steaks which results in incredible tenderness and deep flavor
  • Trim each steak to exacting standards so that you get an incredible eating experience
  • Bring you back to our butcher shop to select your own steak
  • Offer Ribeye steaks by the ounce starting at 16 ounces
