I have a soft spot for Spring Branch because I went to school there from kindergarten to senior year. This neighborhood, located in west Houston, is known for its diverse residents and delicious restaurants. Spring Branch resident Becky
wrote in with suggestions below for those looking to visit the neighborhood.
Brian and Gemma serve up amazing cold brew and house-made British baked goods. It’s also decorated with geology stuff, which is soooo Houston.
American Legion Post 654
This community organization works to support veterans and their families. In the past, American Legion Hall raised funds to take 18 World War II vets to New Orleans for two days of fun, including being honored at the World War II Museum there with a full police escort. You also don’t want to miss their steak nights. The next one is on Oct. 6.
Eighteen Ten Ojeman
If you’re looking for a place to see live music, then check out this spot which also has a vintage arcade, bingo, karaoke, and open mic nights. Mark your calendar for their pre-Halloween party and car show next month.
The Battle of Tex-Mex
Which is your favorite Tex-Mex? They’re all within about a half a mile of each other on Gessner. A lot of the old-timers swear by El Gallo, but the food at Chavez is hard to beat. Juarez has the nicest servers and great tortilla soup. Taquería Cancún has the rare Tex-Mex drive-through. There’s definitely something for everyone.
