59 Diner

3801 Farnham Houston, TX 77098 | Lower Shepherd-Kirby | 713-523-2333

Location Description:

This is one of the best examples of a good old-fashioned diner we have in the city. Here you'll find lots of chrome and pleather and a lunch counter where you can sit while watching the food being prepared. Great breakfasts are served all day long, and there's comfort food for lunch and dinner. The daily Blue Plate Specials include perennial favorites like pot roast, turkey and gravy, catfish and roast pork. Traditional floats, malts and milkshakes alone are enough to make the trip here worthwhile.
