Haven't seen this posted, but the Alison Cook Top 100 list came out this week. I know there is always *****ing and moaning about some on the list, but this year's seems especially wtf to me. Almost as if they just went out of their way to make it diverse or to include friends, etc.

Houston Chronicle Top 100

Not sure how Bludorn doesn't make top 25.

It won't work for me either. You can see it for about 10 seconds then it throws up subscription pop up

Don't think I've eaten at any of the Top 25 except Kata Robata and I've lived in Houston ITL for 8.5 years.

Pondicheri and Lucille's don't belong in the top 25, and BCN not making the top ten is a huge miss.

You haven't had kata rabata?

I'll agree that it was a lot of places I've never even heard of this year

We enjoyed Lucille's. But agree definitely not to 25 worth. Especially with places left out.

Agree on Bludorn. Been there twice and bot my times were 2 of the best meals I've ever had, if not the best.

I tried to go to Cafe Louie once and the dining room was closed.

Was able to open the link without it asking to sign up.

It is alphabetical and not listed out after the top 25. Think I've been to 20 or so of the places.

Don't understand the love of Doris Metropolitan. I liked the bread there more than anything. I'd take B&B's every time over Doris.

MAD is on there and I'm actually going there for lunch this afternoon. Will report back

Is it just me or does it seem like the list is pretty damn heavy with Asian cuisines?

Glaring omissions IMO:
- Pinkerton's BBQ
- Georgia James (Not a Chris Shepherd fanboy but Georgia James continues to pump out some of the best food I've ever had)
- Laredo Taqueria (Irvington Location is the best breakfast tacos IMO)
- Nancy's Hustle

Should Not Be on the List:
- Feges BBQ (Too inconsistent)
- Harlem Road Texas BBQ (Too inconsistent)
- Ragin Cajun?? (Enjoy it but would not even be in my top 5 cajun joints)
- Good Dog Houston (Gourmet hot dogs are so bleh)

From Cajuns I know, Ragin' Cajun is meh at best.

Including a hotdog place is just trolling.

Rainbow Lodge?!? Maybe I had bad luck but nothing there has blown me away. Sure its fun to try it out since they offer meats that are rare to find at other places, but nothing seemed like it was great.

I am Brett and I am a customer(not the owner) and the food is legit.

Nancy's hustle is 17. Not a fan of Georgia James but am surprised it isn't on the list.

To me the biggest misses are backstreet, uchi, hugos, and I'll say tiny champions even though I haven't been because I've heard so many good things by people I trust for food recos

I used to love rainbow lodge but feel it's gone downhill. Nothing great about it anymore besides getting meats you can't get elsewhere
