This Is It, one of Houston's oldest and most recognizable soul food restaurants, started in Midtown but has since picked up and moved down the street from Texas Southern University. Originally opened in 1959 under Frank and Mattie Jones, This Is It is run today by grandson Craig Joseph Sr. and his wife. The restaurant still turns out classic Southern comfort food and the best plate of oxtails in town, stewed until the tender, fatty meat falls from the bones with a breath. It's packed to the plate-glass windows at lunch, and good luck finding a parking spot along Blodgett. Our advice: Wait until the lunch rush is over around 1 p.m., or head out early and get there when it first starts serving at 11 a.m.
