Houston has a wide variety of different restaurants that feature many kinds of cuisine. A Greeter will offer you suggestions and accompany you to the restaurant of your choice!

Do you love food? I mean really love it? Come take a bike tour through either the Montrose or Heights area that highlights the newest additions to the Houston food scene: food trucks! These aren’t your average lunch trucks, these trucks serve everything from grass-fed beef burgers with truffle oil french fries to chicken poblano pocket pies to red velvet cupcakes! Most of the chef run trucks use local or organic ingredients and the results speak for themselves. Depending on the time of day and location of the trucks, this experience will stop at 2-4 trucks while experiencing a scenic bike ride through two of Houston’s most pedestrian friendly areas.
Hole in the Wall Restaurants
Where do the locals eat? Houston is home to many independent, “hole-in-the-wall” type restaurants. Take a detour from the tourist areas and let a native Houstonian take you to a fabulous restaurant slightly off the beaten path. BBQ, Mexican, Burgers, Cuban, Southern/Home Cooking, even Vegetarian are some of the options available.
