Grille takes love of team to affordable cuisine
In the heart of the City Centre shopping center is Houston Texans Grille, an affordable place for college students to enjoy a wonderful meal and experience state-of-the-art sports viewing.
The restaurant was designed to be an accurate representation of Houston — a menu with diverse options at a place that loves its sports teams.
I have wanted to try out Houston Texans Grille because I had heard the buzz about it since it first opened last year.
The moment I walked in to the restaurant, my breath was taken away with the advanced technology.
It really seemed like the Hollywood equivalent of a restaurant in the Lone Star State.
Our server, despite being a little busy, introduced herself with a warm smile and did not try to rush us at all.
As we were browsing through the menu for our appetizer selection, I noticed the appetizers ranged from $6 to $10 — great for college students.
Despite the immense options that were available, we decided to try out the spinach and artichoke dip.
For our salad options, we both selected the traditional house salads, which were only $5.
The dip was beautifully decorated on a rectangular platter with little triangles of toasted pita bread and garnished with parsley.
The dip was in a hot bowl that contained sautéed spinach, artichoke hearts mixed with Parmesan cream sauce and topped with diced tomatoes and bread crumbs, giving it a golden crisp.
For my entrée, I ordered the mahi sandwich, which ended up being my favorite part of the meal.
The mahi was blackened with southern spices placed between two buttery, toasted buns served with a side of golden, crisp fries and a ramekin of the restaurant’s special tartar sauce.
Fish is typically very pricey, so I was very surprised it was $12.
I definitely could not pass up the opportunity.
We also could not even think about leaving without dessert.
Our server recommended the bread pudding — the smallest dessert in size but enormous in taste.
It was only $8, a very nice amount to spend between two college students.
The dessert was a traditional warm bread pudding drizzled with caramel sauce and served with vanilla ice cream.
Between my friend and I, we only spent $21 on the three-course meal.
With its affordable prices, aesthetic appeal and the quality of service, I’m definitely coming back to Houston Texans Grille.
