While you might not associate Vietnamese food with great Texas beer selection, Hughie’s Tavern and Grill offers both. Located on 18th Street in the former home of Queen Burger, there are plenty of reasons to like Hughie’s. Portions are generous, prices are reasonable, and there are a few American dishes for those who aren’t into Vietnamese cuisine. Our personal favorite was the banh mi, served on a baguette with pickled vegetables and fresh herbs, but you can also choose from vermicelli bowls, fried rice, meat dishes, and even burgers and chicken fried steak.
Hughie’s proudly prepares their menu from old family recipes and doesn’t use any MSG in the kitchen. Rumors has it that Hughie’s will soon be adding pho to the menu, so keep an eye out for that. Carnivores will love the shaking beef, filet mignon pieces seared over high heat in a wok and served with rice and salad.
Regardless of what you choose, be sure to save room for the red bean ice cream! Trust us on this. We’d also strongly recommend starting with the Vietnamese bbq wings, and if you’re a fiend of caffeine, the sweet Vietnamese iced coffee is a can’t-miss. The bar includes ten tap beers (soon to double to twenty) and a pretty extensive collection of bottled local and regional brews.
