We've Narrowed Down the Most Underrated Greasy Spoons...Vote Now!
Nice try folks, but this Houston institution ain't underrated.

Before we go any further, let's get one thing straight: Dot Coffee Shop and House of Pies are not underrated in any universe. We appreciate your enthusiasm, but we're pretty sure those two spots consistently get the credit they deserve for being excellent greasy spoon eateries.
We didn't get as many comments on this query as we did on the previous query related to Tex-Mex restaurants (though we didn't really expect to), but there was much more consensus among these suggestions than usual. Aside from minimal griping about what is/is not underrated, y'all stayed pretty civil in the comments section. We were truly touched.
Here's your latest poll of the most underrated greasy spoon in Houston.
As usual, you get one vote, and only one vote. Use it wisely, friends.
The poll will close Friday afternoon at 2 p.m., so be sure to vote before then.
And if, in the interest of accuracy, you decide to try all of these places before casting your vote, we encourage you to take some TUMS along for the ride.
