Houston, TX 77002
Houston Press' Description
Treebeards has been serving some of Houston's greatest Cajun food since 1978, and whether you eat at the original Market Square location, grab a seat under the rafters at the "Cloisters" location inside the Christ Church Cathedral, or pick up food from one of two tunnel locations, you're in for a treat. Things gets wild and wooly around noon during the week, when downtown office workers flock to the restaurant's locations for its red beans and rice, seafood gumbo and jambalaya. Smart diners go early or late.
Tips from foursquare
Treebeards has downtown covered. In addition to the Market Square flagship, there's a Treebeards at The Cloister at Christ Church Cathedral and a tunnel locations at the 1100 Louisiana building.
Lunch here is packed, but they move you along quickly. Try the Chicken Fried Steak w/gravy - it's actually not greasy. Avoid meatloaf and mashed potatoes - very bland.
Open weekdays from 11am to 2:30pm, Treebeards offers three dining areas to choose from. Daily specials start at $8.95 and include chicken, fish, or meat with your choice of two sides.
Great place to have lunch. The fruit is fresh and served with a mint leaf! Southern fare. Friendly staff.
Incredibly friendly staff. Make sure you look at the board before you get in line to order.
