  • Time to make plans for Mother's Day 2016

    Houston, Texas Published by Chron.com, Author: Syd Kearney

    Mother's Day -- the No. 1 dining out day of the year -- is just around the corner.


    If you show up to a restaurant on May 8 with Mom in tow but without a reservation, you deserve the eye rolls you'll get from the lanky hostess.

    There's still time, of course, to avoid an interminable wait on the walk-in bench. And the good news is that nearly every restaurant in the city will be offering some nod to moms with expanded brunches, menus and specials.

    Note that unless mentioned, pricing does not include tax, gratuity or beverages.
