On a recent trip to Houston there were a couple of things on my list of things I wanted to eat: Tex-Mex, BBQ, Vietnamese (more on this in a future post) and steak. I was able to do all four in my short time in the city, and the steak was one of the best I’ve ever had.
I decided on Pappas Bros. Steakhouse. They have a few locations but we went to the one in Downtown. The vibe is old school with a live piano player the day we went. We started with oysters and caviar.
They were good but the star of the meal was dry aged ribeye.
The presentation could use some work but the flavor, texture, seasoning, and temperature were perfect and it was absolutely to die for. We also had a Caesar salad as a side dish.
For dessert, we had a pecan pie which is a Southern specialty, and according to Wikipedia,”Archaeological evidence found in Texas indicates that Native Americans used pecans more than 8,000 years ago”. It was a huge portion (they say everything is bigger in Texas), but it was good.
Overall, service and food were excellent, and I would definitely go back if ever I found myself in Houston again.

I had Luger a number of years ago so I cant comment specifically but I do know when something remains memorable its amazing. This will remain memorable. Luger wont remain memorable for me, “just” good.
wow “best” is a coveted term, despite the plain presentation. I know a foody who would travel for this. if you have a pic of the meat sliced that would be foodgasm. Pappas Bros website informs on the source of the beef, but nothing really unique: dry aging, knowing the upstream sourcing, etc
can you comment on comparison to Luger in NY?
