Help the Greater Houston Visitors and Conventions Bureau Update Its List of 15 Iconic Houston Meals

If we were to send visitors out for a steak in Houston, it'd be to Vic & Anthony's.

Whether or not you agreed with our own recent list of our 100 Favorite Dishes in Houston, most residents have their own very definite ideas of what essential Houston meals are. Perhaps it's barbecue at Thelma's or oysters at Gilhooley's. Maybe it's crispy-skinned snapper at Reef or Vietnamese crawfish at Wild Cajun. Either way, every Houstonian has at least one meal or one restaurant they guide visitors to when they want to dine in the Bayou City.

Last week on Twitter, the Greater Houston Visitors and Conventions Bureau asked for help in updating its own list of 15 Iconic Houston Meals. The list as it currently stands includes:

Personally, we'd sub out the steak at Taste of Texas for one at Vic & Anthony's, and the pancakes at Buffalo Grille for those at Fountain View Cafe. And there should be at least one food truck meal on there, for which we'd probably sub out Barnaby's.

What changes would you make? Let the GHCVB know on Twitter: @VisitHoustonTX.
