With your kitchen's pots and pans inhabited by the evil spirits of dead pots and pans, cooking at home has become both time consuming and spooky. Get quality cuisine without interference from crazed kitchenware with today's Groupon: for $4, you get $8 worth of comfort food, Mexican-influenced fare, deli-style eats, and more at either of Luchi & Joey’s two locations. Choose to dine at the original Frontier Barbecue location, or snack on sandwiches, salads, and specialty coffees at the Deli location, both on Walker Street.
Luchi & Joey’s offers eaters the choice of two downtown dining establishments, both of which are stocked with casual, savory fare crafted from fresh ingredients. Visit the Deli for a beef fajita sandwich with mozzarella, guacamole, red onion, lettuce, tomato, and chipotle dressing ($7.95), or start your day with a breakfast burrito of potato, egg, and cheese ($2.75), all flushed down your throat by the caffeinated sloshings of a grande-sized mystic latte ($3.50). At the Frontier Barbecue, guests can partake in a breakfast of migas—a pair of eggs scrambled up with tortilla chips, onions, tomato, and hot peppers ($5.75)—or show up at lunch for a house-smoked rib plate (with two sides, $8.95), the popular made-to-order salads with smoked meats such as sausage, chicken breast, and more ($6.65 for small), or specialty chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and green beans (normally $7.99). In addition, the Friday catfish special comes with two sides and includes a medium drink ($8.95).
Hailing from Chiapas, Mexico, Luchi and Joey decided to spread their love for fresh, home-style fare to others by opening a restaurant—then, to further their delectable dynasty, they opened another one. Deploy their edible arsenal at your hunger front and besiege the barren no-man's land with high-caliber eats.
Luchi & Joey's was recommend in My Table's 100 Great Things about Houston Restaurants:
- Hidden in the Mellie Esperson Building tunnel is one of the most promising restaurant operations I have encountered. Luchi and Jose Figueroa arrived here from Mexico a couple of years ago and bought an existing barbecue restaurant in the Esperson tunnel. They are young, brilliant, hard-working and they absolutely glow. When I met them, I told them that I thought they had to use their names on their business because their personalities are so much a part of it ... so they put “Luchi and Joey’s” on both the tunnel barbecue restaurant and their new line of Frontier Cocina BBQ sauces, which are now on the shelves of Whole Foods. – Kathy Heard, My Table
