Houston Restaurants Open or Closed Due to the Freeze

Jan 16, 2024

Thanks to an Arctic deep-freeze that sent Houston-area temperatures plummeting to the teens, dangerous overpasses and occasional patches of black ice on the roads, many restaurant owners have opted to close on Tuesday, January 16 for the safety of employees. Some may open in time for lunch, while others will be closed until Wednesday. Below is a sampling of restaurants not open for regular hours today, but if you don’t see a particular one listed, be sure to check the business’s social media to see if it’s made any announcements.

Restaurants aren’t the only places closed on Tuesday, January 16. Municipal courts are also closed, as is Rice University. There’s no trash pickup today, and as a result, that’s going to be running two days’ behind schedule until (and possibly through) the weekend.
