    Hey guys we are coming into H-town for the weekend and we are looking for some good inexpensive places to eat. We normally stay around reliant and eat at Pappas (which I like) but we would like to try other restaurants that arent too far from our hotel.

    I like BBQ so I would love to hear if there are better bbq restaurants that are worth the drive (30 mins maybe 45)

    Also, We both like seafood so if there is a good seafood restaurant/ cajun that you think we should vist let us know.

    Basically we are looking for things we dont have in SA, so if you think there is a chain for us to check out that is good as well.

    Thanks guys and I look forward to seeing yall on SUn.

    Kozy Kitchen Barbeque. I-10 and Lockwood. They've been there since 1946 and make their own sauce. You're welcome.

    Rudi's is by far the best BBQ to me, because you can order their "moist brisket" which is the very tender pieces near the fat so you're guaranteed to get the types of pieces that I like. They have those near SA and Austin though, so you might have been there. Everything else there is wonderful as well though.

    There's all kinds of crap on harwin so watch out.

    Rajin Cajun is overpriced and a wee bit overated. Driving in there is a place called Orleans at Westgreen & I-10. Westgreen is like 3 or 4 exits after you pass Bass Pro Shop in Katy when you are coming in. Its on the north side of the highway.

    We tear it up over there. Great stuff very decent prices.

    I have heard fantastic things about Orleans. I guess I am going to have to try it out sometime.
