This is part two in a series highlighting restaurants that occupy Taco Bell buildings. YiaYia's Roadster Grill at 5210 Bissonnet is the all-American restaurant housed in an old TB building that serves Greek food and has what we consider to be the best burger in Bellaire, although on our most recent visit we got a hot dog.
We needed a little hangover cure, and a big dog on a bun was just the right amount of meat and grease to fix things up. We love hot dogs, and sometimes little mom-and-pop places do them the best. Ours came with mustard, relish and onions. Next time we'll ask for bacon on top.
There's only a couple more places we know of that occupy old Taco Bell buildings in Houston, so if anybody runs across one that serves any kind of food, good or bad, let us know. If it still has the actual bell on top, we will get really excited.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
