In Houston, we take our icons pretty seriously. But it’s not all ZZ Top and Beyoncé up in here. No, we also make icons out of things we eat. Or more accurately, things we drenched in cheese, gravy, and chipotle butter. And while Houston may not have invented these essential dishes, we most certainly perfected them. Here are H-town’s 13 most iconic edible offerings, and the places to get them.

Chicken-fried steak

Frank’s is known for reinterpreting classics, but honestly, a great chicken-fried steak doesn’t need much tweaking. Instead, the kitchen focus on farm-fresh, high-quality beef with a crazy good, crisp, and craggly crust doused with an awesomely white gravy with cracked black pepper to finish the old-school number off with a major bang.
