The Houston Press gave Zelko Bistro the Best Comfort Food award in
2010 for good reason: This cozy converted house in the Heights offers
everything comfort food should be. It's inexpensive, well-made,
thoughtfully presented, delicious food from childhood served with a
warm smile. Zelko Bistro also happens to serve one of the finest
burgers anywhere, The Boss Burger, and desserts you thought you'd
never find on a chef-driven restaurant's menu: funnel cake and banana
splits. An elegantly constructed wine and beer list with seriously
affordable prices and a hidden garden-style patio make this one of the
best bets in town for a wonderful meal on all fronts.
