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.

Four of Antone’s traditional sandwiches are available at approximately 200 grocery outlets throughout Texas (HEB, Randalls, and Kroger), in addition to broader menu items at their three Houston locations on the West Loop, North Loop, and in Medical Center and Antone’s grab-and-go kiosks (weekday only) in Greenway Plaza and the Downtown Tunnels.
