Here at Eater, you can reliably find Houston's hottest restaurants, the city's essential eateries, and pretty much all the food news you can chew on. But some restaurants, namely those that have been around for a while or don't employ a massive staff of publicists, can fly under the radar.
It's no surprise that Houston is chock-full of hidden gems that don't get the same fanfare as Houston's James Beard Award-nominated restaurants or those helmed by celebrity chefs. With so much ground to cover – Houston is a massive city, after all – and all the great restaurants in the 'burbs, you could probably eat at a solid new (to you) restaurant every single day for at least a year without any repeats.
So without further ado, scope out Eater Houston's first-ever guide to the city's Restaurant Underdogs. For inclusion on this map, restaurants must not be on the Eater Heatmap or Eater 38, and must not have publicists.
