Where do 'hounds go in Beaumont?

Indeed, Finch Hutton is the new hot spot. Excellent all around! A must try, and I am very glad it's in mid-county. I hate driving to Beaumont.

I tried Fuzzy's and it totally sucked.

Some other newer spots in Beaumont include the Grill by Arfeen and Major League Grill on Dowlen. Also I forgot to mention Katherine's on MLK which is an incredible place to eat some gourmet lunch or early dinner.

Pho Four Seasons is excellent, as is Chaba Thai on Lucas if you're into Thai food.

They just moved, they are over by Parkdale mall in the old Lone start steakhouse location.

By the way, there is a new gourmet place in Nederland on Boston Ave. I checked out the menu and it looked incredible! I can't recall the name but it is on Boston ave on the left after you turn off of twin city hwy.

Also, if you are into small, home made pecan smoked bar-b-que (the east Texas way), you HAVE to go up to Evadale and check out Chuck's BBQ. Worth the drive!

As a native, let me agree that Al-T's down the road in Winnie is a great place. As for Beaumont, I have heard good things about Goodfellaz on Dowlen. For Mexican food Cafe Del Rio near 11th st is good. Elena's is ok, I would call it typical. Rao's is a must for their great coffee and unbelievably beautiful baked treats. Willy Ray's does have good bar-b-que, as does Fat Mack's and Patillo's. All are different styles.

Honestly the best thing you could do around Beaumont is to make friends with some locals and go to a family get together, particularly if you can find some Louisiana transplants to feed you some authentic cajun food. If you're wiling to drive a few minutes, Larry's French Market in Groves, TX has good food and a really unique, real-deal cajun atmosphere. North of Beaumont, in Lumberton, TX you will find the best hamburgers on the planet at Dippity's, and be sure to order the onion rings too.

The Classic 3-2-1 Margarita

This is good but I also add a bit of non-pulp OJ to mine.

Breakfast in Houston

Mama's cafe on Westheimer is great. Try their skillets. Barney's (near West Gray) is good too.
