Three words: Bone. Marrow. Pho. Yes, there are other restaurants that rank higher than Pho Binh on this list, but that single dish makes it one of my favorites, and a favorite among many other night owls in Houston. Pho Binh by Night in Alief is open until 3 a.m. on the weekends, and it’s well worth the drive out of the Loop for some of that heavenly pho. It’s rich and sumptuous and not at all the austere beef broth you might get at a shop in Midtown (though that pho is good, too). This is the king of pho, brought to you by an unassuming little spot in a strip center primed and ready for some late-night eats and people-watching.
