The Memorial and Spring Branch area neighborhoods are homes to thousands of Houston residents. Fortunately, these are also the homes of many Houston restaurants, too. A good, well-priced meal is never far away, especially now. With the current COVID-19 crisis, many restaurant owners are putting in great effort to offer sensible packages, well-priced meals and family specials to feed a crowd. Want to dine after this is all over? There are many buy-one-get-a-bonus gift card specials going on, too, and this is a great way to lend financial support to a key part of Houston’s economy.
Below is our list of what’s available right now. For other neighborhoods and offerings, check out the shutdown-specific articles below. More dedicated neighborhood list articles are coming.
