Triple A Restaurant

2526 Airline Drive Houston, TX 77009 | Heights | 713-861-3422

Location Description:

Situated right next to a farmer's market, Triple A is known for greasy spoon diner fare. From homemade Southern classics like chicken and dumplings, cornbread and chicken fried steaks to a very popular breakfast menu, Triple A specializes in comfort food. Stepping inside will transport you to another era, when waitresses were sassy and called you "honey" and "darlin'" and the most popular place to watch a movie was a drive-in. Plate lunches and dinners include one meat and three sides with a choice of a roll or piece of cornbread for under $10.
