Pappas Bros. Steakhouse - Houston
The Pappas Brothers restaurant group remains a privately held company long after it was established in the 1970s. Owned by brothers Chris and Harris, the Houston-based group includes Pappas Bros. Steakhouse, Pappasito's Cantina, Pappas Burgers and mostly famously Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen.
Pappas Bros. Steakhouse is the siblings' upscale eatery and this original location serves as a shrine to the family's patriarch, their grandfather H.D. Pappas. He left Greece in 1897 to come to the United States to open restaurants in Tennessee, Arkansas and Texas.
Based in the Houston Galleria, the steakhouse is as classic as steakhouses come. All steaks are dry aged in house and consist of cuts such as 12-ounce filet mignon, 16-ounce New York strip and 26-ounce Porterhouse. Non-steak favorites include pan-seared sea bass and live Maine lobster.
The restaurant hosts monthly wine tasting events.
