Willie's Grill and Icehouse is casual, has good food and has a patio, so it's always a reliable spot for dinner.
This restaurant started in Houston as a burger joint in 1993 and has grown to many locations (and lots of menu options).
Now you order at the counter, grab your drink and find a seat. The waiter comes to your table, grabs your ticket and puts in your order. (It's a mix of counter service and wait service.)
Once we were hot and sandy, the food arrived and we cooled off in front of the Astro's game on TV.
