Cafe Rita - Closed

2352 S. Dairy Ashford St. Houston, TX 77077 | Memorial | 281-493-9200

Location Description:

This Armenian/Lebanese restaurant is a small, one-of-a-kind place run by an elderly Armenian couple. Eating here makes you feel like you're a guest in their home -- everything is homemade and served with pride. Their hummus, mouhammara (red pepper spread) and falafel are excellent, and all of their kabobs -- lamb, chicken, kefta -- served hot off the grill, are scrumptious. At lunchtime, expect a wait.
