Escape sudden cold snaps this winter and bask in the toasty comfort of five popular Antone’s favorites at their two restaurants and two grab-and-go kiosks in the Houston area.
It’s no surprise that Antone’s Famous Po’ Boys is best known for its eponymous sandwiches…they’re literally in the company’s name. But in recent years, Antone’s has reinvented and reinvigorated its menu of comfort food favorites.
It’s the perfect time to soothe your taste buds and warm your soul with Louisiana, Tex Mex, and even Italian-influenced dishes.
5 Tasty Cold Weather Food Options at Antone’s
- Gumbo – Made from scratch with fresh ingredients, Antone’s palate-pleasing gumbos are a satisfying cold-weather staple. Choose from Chicken and Andouille Sausage, Seafood, or Vegetarian. Cups start at $6.45 and bowls start at $8.45 (Seafood Gumbo is a little bit more).
- Red Beans & Rice – A classic dish that goes back to Antone’s Louisiana Creole cuisine roots, today’s Red Beans & Rice recipe was revamped a few years back. What was once made with a pre-packaged base is now made from scratch, with Antone’s own original recipe. Cups are $4.45 and bowls are $5.95.
- Tex-Mex Cheese Steak Sandwiches – Hands down one of Antone’s most popular sandwiches, Chef Alex’s cheese steak feature a Texas border twist on the old Philly favorite. In addition to tasty skirt steak, sandwiches are loaded with chipotle mayo, peppers, onions, pepper jack cheese, and jalapeños. Bread is all locally sourced from Royal Bakery. $9.25.
- Cubano Sandwiches – Featuring pork loin roasted fresh in-house every day, this taste-tingling sandwich is also filled with ham, Swiss cheese, spicy mustard, and dill pickles. Chef Alex also added pesto to the bread to give it a unique and zingy touch. $8.95.
- Fried Seafood Baskets & Platters – Sometimes you just want to dig into tasty fried shrimp and seafood, and Antone’s platters do not disappoint. The Seafood Platter boasts shrimp, catfish, and oysters for $15.45, while the aptly-named Shrimp Basket is filled with crispy fried shrimp for $13.95. Both are served up with French fries, hush puppies, tartar and cocktail sauces, and fresh lemon.
About Antone’s Famous Po’ Boys
Founded in 1962 as Antone’s Import Co. by Jalal Antone, the original Antone’s market catered primarily to the city’s Syrian and Lebanese immigrants long before generations of Houstonians grew smitten with the restaurant’s unique po’ boys and other delicious dishes.
Antone’s four traditional sandwiches also are available at approximately 200 grocery outlets throughout Texas (HEB, Randalls, and Kroger), in addition to broader menu items at their two standalone Houston locations on the West Loop and North Loop, and Antone’s grab-and-go kiosks (weekday only) in Greenway Plaza and the Downtown Tunnels.
