This time, we're moving to the antique shop, bungalow, and dining mecca that is the Houston Heights. There were certainly no shortage of great eateries before, but in the past year even more have been popping up -- like the much-anticipated fried chicken joint Funky Chicken, market-restaurant-hybrid Heights General Store, and soulful Cajun spot Mozelle's Cajun Seafood Market.

Note: For the purposes of this list, "the Heights" is defined as south of Loop 610 West, east of North Shepherd, north of the Katy Freeway and west of Airline Drive.
Honorable Mention: Hot dogs at Happy Fatz and the new storefront of Good Dog Houston, the Tex-Mex lunch specials at Teotihuacan Mexican Café, and gravy-dipped beef sandwiches at Chicago Italian Beef. More »
