Contemporary Southern
Edgar’s Hermano expertly blends Houston’s native Tex-Mex cuisine with trademark classic Southern fare, and the result is some of Houston’s most inspired and authentic downtown dining. Join us for a meal and let Executive Chef Sylvia Covarrubias excite your palate with unique dishes like Adobo Crusted Pig Wings served with agave habanero glaze over masa cheese grits, mac and queso with chipotle grilled Gulf shrimp, and our award-winning Southern fried stuffed chicken with masa grits and candied bacon jam.

While you're here, saddle up to the bar and sample our inventive cocktail menu that puts a Texas twist on everyday standards. You can sip on one of our specialty cocktails made with our own private label Edgar’s Truth bourbon or choose to quench your thirst with one of our many craft brews from local Houston breweries.

We’re open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so head on over anytime - your taste buds will thank you, and so will we.

    The restaurant is in a hotel which was not immediately obvious from the online description. The food was uninspiring and overly salty. The staffing was minimal and our waiter did the best he could considering he appeared to be waiting on every table by himself.

    The food was terrible. I could make better food on my own. The service was not attentive and dull, as if he didn't even want to be there. I was checking this place out to invite clients for brunch or breakfast but after tonight I wouldn't even order a drink there. Burger was clearly burnt and we still got charged for it. I'm sad to say this restaurant needs massive improvement in both service and food.

    Hi Chrys, Sounds like we didn’t provide you with the same customer service that many have come to know us for. I’m sincerely sorry. We pride ourselves on southern hospitality and delicious food and it seems we fell short this time around. Please contact me, I would like to fix things, if possible? My name is Erica and I’m one of the F&B managers . Please send me an email erica@thewhitehallhouston or call at 713-739-8800 when you have a free moment. Sincerely, Erica Storch F&B Team

    Food was decent. Good portions but blackened fish wasn't blackened, other plates looked good. Service was painfully slow, took an hour to get main courses and had to ask for water multiple times to get it. Did not get asked if wanted dessert or anything else before check was brought. There's definitely better food and service in downtown Houston.
