The USDA's food pyramid traditionally puts bread on the bottom because some of the most savory suppers are best served on buns. Get a good a base with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of hot dogs, burgers, and subs at City Eats in Kingwood.
City Eats brings the lore of East Coast street food to the outskirts of Houston, where stacks of burgers, fries, subs, and sloppy joes shape an eclectic menu. Listen as grill maestros orchestrate sizzling symphonies of meat with half-pound Angus beef burgers ($5.79+) and authentic Sabrett hot dogs ($2.29+) that snap with encores of spice. Culinary engineers may build their own doghouses or choose prefab meal units such as the new york dog ($2.89) ornamented with brown mustard, onions, and sauerkraut. Take a bite out of Brooklyn's back-street delis with a 9-inch italian sub ($7.59), piled with layers of ham, salami, provolone, and slices of the Williamsburg Bridge. City Eats' basket builders are equally quick to shovel mounds of fish 'n' chips or fresh-fried chicken fingers over shards of potatoes and pair them with tangy tartar sauce, sweet honey mustard, or cool ranch dressing ($5.99 each). Housed within a demure storefront, City Eats invites diners to nosh generous portions of casual eats inside or under the patio umbrellas of its sidewalk café.
