Ever had Faccia di Vecchia [fachya-di-vekya]? Regardless, this is the place you want to have it. Light and crispy bread (almost like a very light pan pizza) lightly topped with bold, rich Sicilian ingredients. It can effectively take the place of garlic bread as an appetizer or with your meal. If this sounds even remotely interesting, trust your brain and ask for it. You can't beat it in Houston or in Texas, period. And when you're done and satisfied, either go back again for it, or ask for a sheet to go. Keeps frozen very well and warms up easily. You really can't go wrong with the entire menu here. Ok so I've been a few times. It's not exactly junk food anyway. A great family owned and run Italian deli/diner just off 45 (opposite of U of H central) on Leeland. Very well known, but a best kept secret at the same time. Go now! Eat!

Very near and dear to my heart. Their po' boys have been my favorite food since the 1970s. I could eat them every single day and never, ever get burnt out. My 82 year old mother (who is also a native Houstonian), still talks often about how they had to have a cop direct traffic at lunchtime back when they were at their original location on Taft Street. I have fond memories of going there as a small child and being in complete awe (who knows why) of the wooden Indian that stood at the door. I was always compelled to touch it (again, who knows why! lol.) I truly feel sorry for those who aren't aware of the difference between the ORIGINAL Antone's and the "fake" one. Shameful. There is just NO comparison.
