    Don't worry Bobby, anybody can eat wherever they want. Unfortunately I can't remember the name of the joint, but it was pretty popular and may still be around. That kind of sick is something you never ever forget. You go right ahead, help yourself!

    Although they are a chain now, they are a Houston chain, you can't go too far wrong with Pappadeaux or any of the Pappas places. Pappas Bros steakhouse is very good.

    Uchi is some of the best sushi I have had anywhere.

    As far as Churrascarias, there are many in Houston. Good and bad. I wouldn't avoid all Italian restaurants because someone you know from the interwebs got sick at one once. If you are worried about it, be sure to prepare your stomach with a caipirinha first. The best in Houston, IMO is Chama Gaucha on Westheimer or Nelore's, but neither are convenient.

    check the reviews on the place first...

    Ummm. . . thanks Penn, I think. Chama Gaucha it was! I guess they had an unfortunate ingredient in something on the salad bar or the grill that night, but my friend and I spent a couple of hours in the ER about 12 hours later. I'm sure it is generally fine, but once burned . . .

    Believe me, I have gotten as sick as you can get from some backwoods Churrascarias in Brazil. Salad bars in particular can be bad and I definitely avoid the sushi sitting at the salad bars at most Churrascarias. However, the salad bar is just a ruse to get you to fill up before the meat starts coming, so you should avoid most of it any way and focus on the meat and the pao de queijo--and, of course, the caipirinhas

    If you want to go gourmet route and aren't worried about price, Smith & Wollensky on Westheimer is one of the best restaurants I have eaten at, period.

    2nd on Smith & Wollensky. Tru Luc is also very good and in the Galleria area also.

    There a loads of good Texas BBQ places. The brisket is great.

    I think America's - which is Brazilian, and may be what others are complaining about - is superb

    I also think that Bar Annie (used to be Cafe Annie) is exceptional
