Esther's Cajun Cafe and Soul Food
Houston, TX 77091
Houston Press' Description
You know that when you're eating here, you're one of the family. The customers are a tight-knit bunch at this little restaurant with a steam table (if there's no steam table at your soul food restaurant, you're doing it wrong). Pass your tray through and let Esther load it up with smothered pork chops, buttery mashed potatoes, sweet yams and a giant slice of chocolate cake for later. In the spring, Esther's even does crawfish boils on the small patio. You might feel like you ended up at someone else's family reunion, but they throw one hell of a party.

Wear elastic pants! Cabbage is spicy. Mac is creamy slice of heaven. Wished the weather were better to sit on the patio.
The peppersteak is toooo good! Can't go wrong with anything on the menu!..
