Good variety of salads, burgers and TexMex plates. Portions are generous. All ingredients are fresh. Good for eating inside and comfortable seating outside. Spacious enough. Servers are polite and helpful. Decent prices. Will come back and would recommend to everyone.

This place is amazing!! As a huge Lord of The rings fan, I absolutely had to come here with my boyfriend. He ordered the BLT with guacamole & egg...it was insanely big. My tropical chicken salad was fantastic as well. Highly recommend!!

Interesting decorations based on the Hobbit franchise. They had some pretty great food options on their breakfast menu, and the portions were huge. I had the avocado omelette, which I really enjoyed, but I think the fajitas were even better. Service was pleasant and fast.

I've enjoyed eating there. Good and friendly service, with decent brunch and lunch offerings. Neat atmosphere for The Lord of the Rings fans. It's a popular place that I would recommend for a casual meal.

My wife and I stumbled upon the Hobbit and are so glad we found it. The restaurant is located off Richmond hidden behind a couple of other places. The restaurant is a cool cozy little place with great patio dining. We started with guacamole and chips, the guac was very good and chips with fresh and crispy. My wife had... More

I am surprised to read the reviews and see how many people like this place...maybe I ordered the wrong thing?? I ordered the quesadilla and didn't like it. Maybe I will give it another try and try something else

I visited the Hobbit Cafe this past week. I had heard previously that it had closed. I am not sure why, but happily it is still doing a great job. My first visit to this cafe was back at its original location in the 1970's. During my seven years in Houston, we frequented the cafe to enjoy its wonderful menu... More

My sister and I went today after reading about it on Zagat. It is sort of hidden back in there and parking lot was full. We had excellent service from Dannie. We both had fish tacos. Blackened fish. Great sauce. Loved the mango pics. Will definitely be back

Thank mellykayi
