D&T Drive Inn

1307 Enid Houston, TX 77009 | Heights | 713-868-6165

Location Description:

According to our bartender, this historic Heights ice house was named after the original owner's kids, Dan and Ted. Opened in 1959 but now under new ownership, the place has gained a loyal following among craft-beer fans, with 51 different taps available. A favorite drink among patrons is the house-made Frozen Shandy, a beer and lemonade mix that is tart and sweet simultaneously. Employees describe the food as being much better than usually found in an average bar, with smoked pork nachos and Frito pie topped with beef stew, pickled jalapenos and smoked pimento cheese among the favorite items. Tuesday is steak night, offering a New York Strip or rib-eye with a loaded baked potato and salad. Out back, shaded picnic tables and benches are available and provide a laid-back, backyard party vibe, where the diverse crowd here enjoys the eclectic music selections on the jukebox, many from local musicians: country, blues, soul, punk and more.
