    Best Shish Kebab - Cafe East

    The "East" in this spiffy, clean little restaurant, housed in a former fast-food outlet, does not refer to its location in Houston (it's actually on the far west side of the city), but to the Russian word for east, vostok. In Russia, east is a shorth...

    Best Steak Dinner for Two for 20 Bucks - PJ's Sports Bar

    Best Martini - The Twister, The Remington Grill
