ULR’s Guide to Houston Restaurant Weeks 2020

It’s that time of year again! Houston Restaurant Weeks is back! This month-long event sees participating Houston restaurants set out menus ranging between $20 – $45 depending on the number of courses. One dollar from each meal purchased will be donated to the Houston Food Bank. The donation amount is smaller than in past years, but this allows more establishments to participate and helps support workers in the hard-hit restaurant industry.

Diners who want to stay at home can take advantage of the fixed multi-course menus that will be available for takeout and delivery at some of the restaurants. This year, Houston Restaurant Weeks’ motto “Dine Out and Do Good” is now “Take Out and Do Good.”

Here is ULR’s guide to the best restaurants for Houston Restaurant Weeks 2020.
