In Houston there is a wide range of places where one can order sushi. You can of course sit down and eat sushi at a restaurant, gorge on simple sushi rolls at a Chinese mega-buffet, pick up a selection at your local grocery store and if you are bold purchase the components and make sushi at home. On the west side of Houston, off of Fry Road and Kingsland Boulevard there is another option that falls somewhere between sushi restaurants and take out sushi from a grocery store. The name of the restaurant is Big Bite Burger & Sushi.
You read correctly, a restaurant, well more like a hamburger joint that also serves fresh prepared sushi while you wait. Or is it a small Japanese sushi restaurant that also serves hamburgers? Regardless, of your personal preference, for the price, quality and convenience, Big Bite Burger & Sushi prepares some really good sushi rolls. What I like most about this establishment is that it really is just a simple food joint with nothing fancy in the décor. You walk into the place and order your food at the cash register and then sit down to wait for your food to be delivered. You can either eat in the restaurant or order the food to go. I have done both.
There is ten or more sushi rolls to select from in addition to order in addition to a selection of sushi nigiri. You can also a selection of Japanese style rice bowls and of course the standard fare of hamburgers and other options from the grill.
If there was anything to find fault about the sushi rolls at Big Bite Burger & Sushi it would be that the speed of service is inconsistent, no alcohol for sale and that the sushi rolls are not rolled tight. None of these reasons are important enough not to enjoy the quality and quantity for the price. As far as the prices for sushi rolls, my friend Tony and I ordered more food than we could finish and we spent less than fifty dollars for two grown men. For me, given that I go to sushi restaurants to eat a meal versus having a snack, this is a good price.
If you live on the west side of Houston and have a craving for fresh, made to order sushi rolls and do not desire to sit down in a Japanese restaurant, then Big Bites Burger & Sushi is the place to go. Whether for lunch with colleagues, dinner with the family or take out it is hard to beat. Not to mention, for those that do not enjoy sushi, you can always order a cheeseburger.
