About Us

H-Town Chow Down is written by a small group foodies who live in the Houston area, and enjoy sharing their experiences, both good and bad.  We feature a mix of news, rumors, opinion, and reviews, and hope that our work is something that you enjoy.

We were honored by the Houston Press as one of their 2010 Blog Stars. We were honored again in 2013 as their Best Food Blog. They like us. They really like us.

When we're not eating and writing about it, we design web sites for some of Houston's best companies and organizations.

In the hospitality industry, we have designed and hosted sites for Tony's, Ciao Bello, Caffe Bello, Amici, The Grotto, La Griglia, Samba Grille, The Salt Lick, Manuel's, Serrano's, Two Chefs Bistro, the Houston Racquet Club, Crust Pizza, The Blue Mug Cafe, and other fine establishments.  We are not compensated in any way for mentioning them on the blog.  But we don't ignore the great work being done by these establishments because they've been web design clients, either.
