Were I to recommend Louie Mueller's to a stranger, I would tell him it is a Texas tradition.  It's as Texas as the State Capitol... You need to go there even if you are a vegetarian.

crosen's Review of Kozy Kitchen

  • Overall: Pretty nice joint. I'd come back. The lady that helped us had worked there for 50 years, and she was super friendly.
  • Potato Salad: Whipped with crunch, great flavor
  • Atmosphere: Little, broken down building in the 5th ward of Houston. Friendly, good folk to help us. Torn up booths and chairs. Looks like they could get a crawd. Black folk jukebox a nice touch - serious blues is pouring out of it. Place is 50 years old.
  • Brisket: Very tender, moist, a little bland, fatty
  • Veal: Fatty cut. It was okay.
  • Pork: Very flavorful, tasty, hickory smoked
  • Spare Rib: Salty rub, tender, not much else
  • Sausage: Pure mystery meat, very scary!
  • Sauce: Tastes like ASS!!!
  • Beans: Spicy & Sweet, I loved it!
