Had lunch here with my church group on weekday. The shrimp etouffee I had was really good. This is cafeteria style, casual but very clean and has plenty of seating (upstairs), even has balcony seating. Price was very reasonable.

Treebeards is only open for lunch which makes it easily accessible to meet downtown in of all places the Episcopal Church Cathedral of Texas. Close by to many business located in the downtown area for a quick crowded yet quiet place for conversation.

Chicken Fried chicken was great with the gravy. Co-worker swears by the rice and beans with sausage. Great place to have a team lunch.

Excellent selection of good quality comfort foods. I had a cold shrimp salad followed by Italian cream cake that was light and tasty. Really worth the extra calories!

The food here is very good. The shrimp etouffee was great. Long tables seat many so get food fast. Mostly people who want cafeteria style food and service.

Every trip to Houston includes a stop for lunch at Treebeard's. They offer delicious quick serve Southern food via a cafeteria line (but sure doesn't taste like it). Butbe sure to know what you want, because that line moves fast!! I love the brisket and...More

For the casual downtown Houston visitor (and of course if you do work downtown) this place is a gem. Had not been here before. This locale appears it was a church at some point. today, more like a communal busy eatery, it is fast but...More

It has been years since I traveled to downtown Houston for a down home cajun food experience. Why did I wait so long! Treebeards has always been one of my favorites to gather with friends for lunch. Seafood gumbo is amazing, but everything on their...More
