We found ourselves in the food court recently and decided to try Otto's for a burger and fries, based on the recommendation of a friend. The burger was large, but thin. I think my least favorite part of it was the mustard, but I still...More

Came across this in the Tunnels in downtown Houston. Hungry male teens. Great food. Wasn't sure about it but glad we stopped. Just like an old fashioned burger.

They have good food but a little overpriced compared to how many bbq restaurants are in Houston. They have excellent burgers!! My personal favorite is the mushroom swiss burger

Food is a 2-3 star affair - all cook offsite and delivered to the commissary kitchen but the people are great.

One of the better BBQ places around, and I think it beats Pappa's. It is less expensive, better BBQ sauce (to me), and good location in the tunnels, makes for easy eating even if it is raining outside. They have all of the tables down...More
