Houston Press' Description

This stand-alone restaurant could do with some updating and cleaning, but the food is downright glorious. Just Oxtails serves down-to-earth soul food, and lots of it. The menu changes daily but, as you might imagine, the wonderful oxtails are featured every day. Other dishes include excellent smothered pork chops, ham hocks and chitterlings, and all are served with homemade corn muffins and three typical sides, like collard or mustard greens, yams, rice, beans or corn. The homemade coconut cake is just like Mom used to make.

But owner Kenneth Washington's commercial is pretty much what you'd expect a soul-food commercial to be: a dude talking about how good his restaurant's food is... More >>
