Highlighting Houston Black-Owned Restaurants for Black History Month

No comments

Happy Black History Month!

This post will be short and sweet, but won’t skimp on spotlighting some of the amazing food coming out of good ole Houston — and of course, we’ll be focusing on black-owned restaurants. Tis the season!

And here’s a little tip for you Houstonians: Houston Black Restaurant Week is a great time to try out some black-owned restaurants.

Okay, so you’re down and you want to try some black-owned hot spots, but don’t know where to start…don’t worry about it. We got you covered.

Houston’s own Black Blogger Cliqueย has compiled a list of black-owned restaurants in Houston AND is giving you a chance to win gift cards to some of these places by participating in a fun game. Head on over to their Instagram (link here) for official rules.

So without further ado, here are a few of our favorite Houston black-owned restaurants we’ve visited, in no particular order. Pssst…we hear some of them are on the Black Blogger Clique’s list, too!

The Turkey Leg Hut

Shrimp and grits

Plates assorted with different foods. The fried catfish pieces were also seasoned well!
