Dot Coffee Shop has been a Houston institution since 1967. Dot was the first of many restaurants from the Pappas brothers. It all started in downtown Houston off of Main Street and the tradition continues today on the Gulf Freeway. We offer yummy comfort food 24 hours a day 7 days a week. We never lock our doors.
Dot serves up mom's favorites, made from scratch every day. Beyond the short waits and leisurely service are large helpings of affordable home-style breakfast specialties, biscuits, omelets, pancakes and much more. Comfort food and burgers top a list of lunch and dinner favorites, including chicken fried steak, pot roast and meat loaf. Coffee lovers rejoice with our strong, no-frills java, and the apple, strawberry and pecan pie slices can't be missed. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Dine-in and to-go available.
Not that good – You'd think this place would be off the hook, but you'd be wrong.
I've been serveral times mainly in the evening hours. Service tended to be slow on all counts and the food seemed just like or a little worse than i hop in some cases.

MY college hang-out – I love this place! It's so clean and almost like stepping back into time. I used to eat here when I was a student at UH. Good times!
Ambiance – If you want something faithful to the American dinner car "Dinner" experience (long and narrow), waiters in white shirts, that is the closest thing to a classic dinner eating experience. People born and raised in New York and New Jersey will feel at home.... just like being back in the old neighborhood.
Typical Pappa's – Like all pappa's restaurants, the food is plentiful, and of high quality. The hash browns are the best in Houston.
