Houston, TX 77008
Houston Press' Description
The Houston Press gave Zelko Bistro the Best Comfort Food award in
2010 for good reason: This cozy converted house in the Heights offers
everything comfort food should be. It's inexpensive, well-made,
thoughtfully presented, delicious food from childhood served with a
warm smile. Zelko Bistro also happens to serve one of the finest
burgers anywhere, The Boss Burger, and desserts you thought you'd
never find on a chef-driven restaurant's menu: funnel cake and banana
splits. An elegantly constructed wine and beer list with seriously
affordable prices and a hidden garden-style patio make this one of the
best bets in town for a wonderful meal on all fronts.
Tips from foursquare
2010 Best of Houston® Winner: Best Comfort Food Restaurant: Try the meatloaf cooked in a can served over a mound of buttery mashed potatoes. They even have fried pickles, hearty soups & fab burgers!
Foodie Heaven right in the Houston Heights. Try the Chopped Bleu, fried pickles, Captin's Fried chicken, or Blue Crab Cake. Save room for dessert: funnel Cake or ice box lemon pie are my favorites.
Zelko seats about 50 people and has a no reservations policy. We recommend grabbing a spot at the bar or coming in at off-peak times.
Try the Chopped Bleu salad! It has juicy apples, pecans and red onions! Add some bacon and romaine and suddenly you have a salad that rivals your entrée.
foursquare users: be sure to check-in here before entering - 3G signal is very weak (perhaps because of metal roof).
