This is a great place to get lunch, though the line can get a little long at peak times. There is a separate line for to go orders that is usually shorter. The grilled chicken and red beans & rice are consistently delicious.

Treebeards is a downtown Houston staple. They have dependable food, always tasty, and alternate side dishes on different days of the week. The desserts are particularly delicious.
