Where to Find the Best Cheap Eats in Houston

Are you looking to enjoy a delicious meal that won’t break the bank? If so, here are three restaurants that offer some of the best cheap eats in Houston:

Hubcap Grill 

Known for serving the city’s best burger, the Hubcap Grill turns up in food shows and publications across the country. Nestled in the Houston Heights neighborhood, this restaurant is a fun place to meet friends. The patio features picnic tables and an outdoor jukebox to play your favorite tunes. All of the burgers are 1/3 pound patties served on a toasted bun, and one of the most popular choices is the Hubcap Decker. It comes with two kinds of cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, and onions. You can enjoy it with a side of fries for around $12.

Stanton’s City Bites 

What began as a family-run grocery store in 1961 evolved into a full-service restaurant called Stanton’s City Bites. It serves unique made-to-order burgers, and Mr. Stanton raised his family on the building’s second floor. Today, his son and daughter-in-law run the eatery. It has a 4.5-star rating on Yelp, and guests appreciate the friendly service and quaint atmosphere. Try a classic burger and original fries for about $9.

Frenchy’s Chicken 

New Orleans native Percy “Frenchy” Creuzot came to Houston in the mid-1960s to find a job as a traveling salesman. Before long, his focus changed to food, and he and his wife opened the first Frenchy’s Chicken four years later. The seasoning for the chicken comes from an old family recipe. Today the restaurant is one of the most popular eateries in the Houston area. Enjoy the chicken tenders, fries, and a regular-sized drink for just $7.
