Sabine River Café is a restaurant that blends the taste of Louisiana with Texas making it very unique and the name comes exactly from the five hundred fifty five mile river that divides the two states even though they are neighbors. The place won immediately a lot of different awards like the 2009 Best Breakfast Award from the Houston Press and from Customer First as well.
The restaurant opened in 2009 at 10001 Westheimer Road near the Westchase area and the hours of operations are Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. And the service is average they could improve a tad bit but is not lousy that leaves a bitter taste in your mouth, plus they have an open kitchen which is cool and the prices are extremely reasonable.
