Delicious Crawfish

1. BB’s Cafe

Cafe, Restaurant, Seafood, Cajun

BB’s brings out the best of Houston, and now they’re bringing it to Upper Kirby. The fourth location of the Montrose hot spot is by far the largest. Here you’ll find Cajun and Creole cooking at their finest, including great Cajun classics such as gorgeous gumbo, outstanding oysters and phenomenal po’ boys. The atmosphere is light and adorned with Cajun flair. BB’s Cafe is the perfect spot to dig into crawfish by the pound.

2. Star Pizza

Restaurant, Pizzeria, American, Fast Food

Serving delectable pizza to hungry Houstonians for nearly 40 years, Star Pizza is a local legend. The fact that this place is locally owned and operated means everything at Star Pizza. The restaurant is in a renovated home; the owners lived upstairs when they first started, which creates a wonderful family friendly atmosphere complemented by excellent neighborly service.
