Opened in 1954, Doyle's is a vintage Houston institution where many Houstonians ate their first spaghetti and pizza. Spaghetti and meatballs is the house specialty. The time capsule atmosphere is great -- and so are the lasagna and the oven-baked sausage poor boy with red gravy and mozzarella. Bring the kids; it's a family restaurant.
