Go Back in Time… Paulie’s in Montrose!

Address: 1834 Westheimer Road, Houston, Texas

When I was a kid, my mom and I would drive from our small Nebraska town to Lincoln to shop and eat lunch.  When I eat at Paulie’s, I think about these old days.

I don’t think we ever visited a place just like Paulie’s but the old building, exposed brick walls and bright cafe take me back.

Paulie’s is a casual restaurant in Montrose that has salads, sandwiches and dinner entrees too.  It is not a kid’s restaurant, but kids are welcome and high chairs are stacked in the corner.

You order at the counter, find a seat and pick up your food when it’s ready.

When we visited, we shared the Vegetable Platter ($8) and the K.C. Special Sandwich ($8).

The Vegetable Platter was like a warm salad with lots of grilled veggies and feta cheese.  The sandwich was stacked high with mozzarella, roasted tomato, lettuce, avocado and pesto mayo.  See the pictures below!

There is no running around in this restaurant, but if you are looking for something beyond the playplaces, this is a good option for good food.  It might even take you back to another time!

Our Review:  Paulie’s is the perfect little neighborhood restaurant.  It has a classic storefront on Westheimer with plenty of parking in the rear and side streets.

Paulie’s is a casual Italian restaurant that is welcoming to families and adults alike.  There is no kid’s menu, but with sandwiches and pasta, it’s easy to find something that kids will like.


We ordered a Pizzitola Panini (fresh mozzarella, Roma tomatoes, pesto) for $7.95 and an Italian Hoagie for $7.95. My 4 year old, 2 year old and I shared the food and had a whole box of leftovers. I also noticed that you can get a lunch special with half a panini and soup or salad for $7.75. Also, from 12:00 – 4:00, daily, alcohol is half price.


The food was fantastic and we had large portions. The atmosphere is very casual, clean, comfortable and just a little fancy.


At the end, my kids convinced me to get the fancy Halloween cookies as a special treat. They are pricey, at $3.00 each, but they are very cute and would make a special little surprise for someone.
