Beaver's

2310 Decatur St. Houston, TX 77007 | Heights | 713-864-2328

Location Description:

Billing itself as a “gastropub meets Texas icehouse,” Beaver’s is really neither of those things and something greater than the sum of those descriptions. It’s still one of the most reliably creative restaurants in town, taking risks with Korean-Mexican-Gulf Coast-inspired dishes like jasmine rice cakes with goat cheese, pepitas and kimchi that aren’t expected amongst the barbecue-heavy menu, yet work stunningly well. Located in Historic Sixth Ward off Washington, Beaver’s also still has the best macaroni and cheese in town, as well as one of the strongest cocktail programs.
