Houston, TX 77042
Houston Press's Description
Just because it’s attached to a hotel — in this case, the Westchase Hilton — is no reason to think less of Rio Ranch. This restaurant can hold its own with the Goode Companys of Houston, and has done so for nearly two decades. A Robert del Grande concept from its beginnings, Rio Ranch has been expertly shepherded since 1993 by its longtime chef, San Hemwattikit, who puts together a gorgeous (and well-attended) brunch buffet on the weekends and serves classics like buttermilk-fried chicken and cowboy-cut rib eyes at dinner.
Tips from foursquare
Sunday brunch is excellent. Omelet station, pancakes and waffles made to order, breakfast tacos, eggs benedict, and the other down home buffet usuals. $16 :)
Waiting for 3 minutes already for a waiter, I guess that's why they are accepting applications...
Avoid the chicken-fried steak and tortilla soup. I had it and got very sick.
The food was okay but they're at hotel prices. This grilled chicken salad was $16. A plain burger is $13. Chili's quality at 2X the price.
Chicken wings are amazing!
