This family owned and operated business is the bomb! Ever hungry at 4:00 am? They have the best feta cheese, roma tomatoes & chicken pizza in town. It's only $15.15 for a medium, feeds 3 adults and takes only 15 minutes (if you are

Great place for late night eating - good food and great service. The Greek omelet is fantastic! The lamb gyros are also great. The staff is very friendly. Apparently this location and the one on Westheimer had some sort of legal battle and

Great brekfast. Cooked like at home. They got the best breakfast in the area, probly in the city. Good place if you're in a hurry during the week. Service is very fast. Weekends is also good but food takes a litle more time. But its still very good considering all the people they get on the weekends. John is my favorite server sunday mornings. He's a great character.

My wife and I decided m taking a break from Katz's and do somthing different. One's-a-Meal is an institution. How could we wrong?

Here's how: dips were very heavy and fatty (and this from a guy raised heavily on milk and cheese!). The meat was very greasy, the terxture was wrong for Greek gyro meat, and the seasoning didn't taste right either.The feta cheese was nor wonderful, the gyro sour cream sauce lacked something (and it was heavy)...Even the small greek salad that come with the small was REALLY small, and the dressing on the side was not great; too much of the wrong vinegar is my guess.

My wife felt moved to compain too the (probable) manager, butheseemed unmovedand uninterested, andentirely without comment.

BTW, even the men's room was extremely hot, with no A/C. Didn't seem intetrest in thata news either.

Next time we're on that street, we'll go one more block to a GOOD meal at Katz's, and at about the same price.

Sad, sad, sad. This was not the review I hoped to write.

Pros: Decent Portions. Dish serves two.

Cons: Food is heavy, greasy, faty, and not particularly good

I have been going to Biba's Ones a meal greek villiage resturaunt for about 10 years. EVERYTHING I have had there is very good and VERY reasonably priced. I am someone who is so picky, I usually have to cook at home. Personally, I LOVE thier pizza most of all. Its a lil pricy compared to say pizzahut,or some other pizza joint, but well worth the extra for a GOOD pizza. If you like a deep dish type pizza with lots of cheese and lots of toppings on it, then Biba's is the place to go. ( I get mine with all the meats, greek olives, and jalepenos). The calamari is very good (And I usually hate seafood because of the iodine taste). The grilled chicken club is huge, they dont skimp on the chicken and also a good size piece of ham that accentuates instead of overpowering. Greek salad is also very good. And also the gyro meat is the only gyro meat I ever actaully liked. (I have tried many and those others tasted real dank) My Husband loves thier chicken soup... he thought it being served with lemon was a little wierd at first, that is untill he tried it. He says it makes a good thing even better and that the soup is certainly the best you can find in Houston BY FAR. He also really likes the BLT. John who has waited there ever since I started going there 10+yrs ago, is very good. I love his greek sense of humor, but some are shocked by it. Those people need to get over themselves and RELAX. Enjoy the food! I really can't say enough good things about this place. The best thing about it is the new location on westheimer is only 3 blocks away from where I live and is one of only 2 resturaunts in montrose open 24/7! (the other is Katz's, and all I will say about them is YUK. But thats for another review lol - Michelle-Paulette

I went in to One's a Meal with some friends late one night expecting some reasonable fare and good service. To start, The food took a long time, was served lukewarm, and by await staff so overworked that they were visibly sweating onto the food and guests as they served it! Gross.

As it was time to pay, i approached the Greek owner at the cashier to cover the tab and my friends waited right outside in the parking lot next to the vehicle talking. Both of my credit cards were declined. I explained that I only had some of the cash and I would step outside to gather the rest from my friends. He began to give me a suspicious look which made no sense at all. As i was getting the cash together, we all turned around to see the owner standing LESS THAN 5 FEET FROM US By OUR CAR giving us an angry look. I handed him the cash for the bill and said,
" You should know better than to follow a guest outside for any reason." He promptly replied, " You should get some decent credit cards !" and stormed back inside.

For anyone that is not aware, one of the MOST important rules of operating a restaurant is to never ever follow guests outside for any reason, whether intoxication, walking the check, regardless of the reason. It is illegal, unsafe, and poor etiquette. The owner has no legal power other than to call the police or walk next door to the HPD station if he feels someone has just walked the check. In all my years as restaurant management student or working in restaurants I have never seen a single action go against all legal, etiquette, and common precautions for restauranteurs.

It baffles me that this muppet owner has been around this long and still has no decency, embarrassing patrons by following them outside as they trying to solve a situation. I hope one day One's a meal can provide some real service! Avoid at all costs Houston!

must try the appetizer--BOILED OCTOPUS. they were large, thick and juicy. spritz a bit of lemon, and BONA PETIT!

their entree dishes were large. i packed 1/2 my shrimp kabob, which was delicious by the way, to go.

it's awesome also that it's open 24 hrs for night owls like myself.

MUST COME BACK!

My wife and I went into this place to try it out..and I had my 2 small kids with me. Not knowing what was good, and looking over the menu, I asked the nice waiter(I think manager). I said I was trying to eat low fat and so was my wife. He said, "I will choose for you, and for your wife"...he was thinking fish. The kids, he chose a small pizza. He was such a nice man, we didn't turn his offer down. Well, out comes a egg plant dip, which was ok...then the small pizza came for the kids...my little girl didn't like pepporoni, so he sent out another without asking. This time a cheese just for her...again, nice guy. After a long wait, our dinner's came out. He ordered me salmon, with sides, and my wife got shrimp! ok..it was good....not low fat though and it was $90!!!! ..for a Tuesday night out with the kids! Don't ever trust anyone and definetely don't let these guys order for you ... I was stupid to fall into this trap. I know you guys are laughing at me now ..LOL, but really. I was ripped off! This is not a fine dining place!

Pros: Food was ok

Cons: Don't be fooled by.."I will take care of you"

As a native Houstonian, I'm ashamed to say I never went to One's A Meal. Until recently. I'm not a late night person but I they are open 24 hrs for all your late night cravings.

I went for lunch. And for $7 I ate for DAYS. I went again and got stuck in a typical Houston down pour ... so I had a glass of wine. It was the perfect lunch.

The hot appetizer sampler is enough to feed 2 for 2 full meals. The gyro is the same. And both are mighty tasty. But the reason you go to One's A Meal [outside of the fact it's a Houston tradition] is the owner ... who has come to my table at each visit and made us laugh. It's like eating in an old friend's house but more food and friendlier.

Pros: lunch, price, hours

My husband and I went here one night after painting our garage for hours on end. We were hungry and wanted different things; he wanted Greek, I wanted Not Greek. We decided to go to One's a Meal since it offers different types of food (Greek and Not Greek, as it happens) and it was open late.

Our waitress was kind and prompt and offered several suggestions when I didn't know what to order. We ate the provided bread (pita) sticks and marinara sauce while we decided on our entrees. The crispy bread was positively addicting which may have set our expectations for the marinara sauce too high because it was flat and tinny.

I ended up getting the chicken soup and my husband got the gyro. I loved the chicken soup because the broth tasted house made instead of from a can. They used orzo in the broth and served the dish with a lemon wedge to squeeze into the soup. It was a nice departure from traditional chicken soup and I appreciated the Greek touches (yes, EVEN THOUGH I SAID I DIDN'T WANT GREEK. My husband took joy in pointing the same thing out to me.). The soup was served with a little salad that was unremarkable and from a bag. The dressing was from a bottle which was disappointing.

My husband's gyro was decent. Their yogurt sauce tasted like it had a lot of sour cream in it which I didn't care for. The french fries served with it were previously frozen, but the meat was nicely seasoned and the flatbread was pretty good as well.

I'd like to go back and try more things from the menu as I would wager a guess they have some gems on their menu. It was hit or miss from the items we ordered, but well worth another visit.

Looks shady - but don't let that fool you. Great food - reasonable prices! Their Gyro is the best in town... trust me. Wouldn't take a date here to save my life, but definitely take a friend here for a nice sit-down lunch!
