  1. I doubt you will find agreement as to one restaurant in a city such as Houston that is THE BEST at anything -- seafood, sushi, Indian, Italian, burgers, BBQ or steak. Amongst the best I would list:

    - Vic & Anthony's downtown
    - Pappas Steakhouse
    - Brenner's / Brenner's on the Bayou

    1. re: grbroderick

      Do those places actually use charcoal? That's what stumped me on this query.

    2. Brennan's? Del Friscos?

      1. The rodizio type places? I've never been, just not interested in the pig-out experience, but any place claiming to serve asados should be using charcoal, no?

        Or some of the other South American places that aren't rodizio style service - Samba Grill, Emporio, Saldivias? I checked some websites but didn't see any mentions of charcoal.

        Some of the Pollo Asado wagons around town actually cook on charcoal! Some also serve fajitas but I suspect you're looking for something a bit more formal?
