Taste of Texas Restaurant Review: Radio host and restaurateur Edd Hendee and his wife Nina opened Taste of Texas in 1977. The sprawling building is decorated with Texas artifacts such as museum quality newspaper articles and documents signed by early Texas leaders. But more than being a repository of Lone Star history, this restaurant in far West Houston draws steak-hungry folks for the Certified Angus beef it has served for more than 30 years. They serve up rib-eye steak by the ounce, cut to your desired thickness; slow-roasted prime rib; filet Oscar topped with a two-ounce crab cake and hollandaise sauce; a massive tomahawk steak; and a huge bone-in porterhouse. For lunch there are sandwiches, burgers and salads. Typical steakhouse sides include au gratin potatoes, fresh asparagus and loaded baked potatoes. A full bar and a lengthy wine list round out the experience, along with desserts like the Snickers pie.
