America's is a natural romantic eatery in the evening. But Brunch at America's is a special event. Very broad selection of appetizers, salads, vegetables, roasted pig, roast beef, tenderloin, shrimp, empanadas omelets and waffles and great desserts.

When I visited America's, two years ago, I said that the churasco was kind of the highlight of my trip. I'm so happy to say that two years later things haven't changed! The churasco was absolutely amazing and perfectly cooked. The atmosphere is always funky...More

Another Houston Restaurant Week Lunch, we went for the diner menu which was recommended, food was good although I was a little concerned at the tenderising used on the steak. The decor is interesting and worth the explanation from staff.
