|Clam Chowder--New England Italian Style|
|HUGE New York Slice|
It had been several months since I'd been to Russo's--no particular reason why, just been busy. However this great clam chowder--slightly herbal and tomato seasoned in the cream, teaming with clams--reminded me why I was always happy to come back here. And the pizza, loaded with savoury meats, fresh veggies and stringy cheese on that huge slice of thin crust with a little edge to hold it in, totally delicious and completely satisfying my itch for good pizza! A slice of meaty veggie goodness! The service was friendly and I was given some herbed Parmesan flatbread and warm marinara sauce for dipping while I waited--no extra charge. All around great New York pizza with Houston hospitality!

I really like this chain because the food is served fresh and full of flavour, the quality is consistent, and it is based here in Texas. I just realized recently that, like several other old favourite restaurants, I had not done them the courtesy of a review and wanted to correct this oversight.
Russo's has location all over Houston, including 2 with coal fired pizza ovens. I went to the Royal Oaks location at:
11660 Westheimer, #103
