THERE’S NO BETTER time in Houston to score a real deal hot dog, freebies and other sporty specials in honor of the Astros. World Series Game 1 is tomorrow night — here are a few restaurants knocking it out of the park.
For every Astros home run during the playoffs, all guests on-site will receive a free milkshake of their choice at the Burger Joint’s multiple locations. Trust us, these divine milkshakes are worth the trip.
Customers who gear up and go out to dinner at Caracol will receive a complimentary margarita with the purchase of an entree during happy-hour.
The Lobby Bar at the C. Baldwin has an excellent and festive Juice Box Rita for $12, made with the standard primo ingredients — and a twist of orange juice.

This newcomer from the Gatlin's BBQ team is spicing things up during the World Series. Try the H-Town Hot Sandwich (crispy chicken or fish tossed in Viet-Cajun hot sauce, topped with basil coleslaw and pickles) for $16. All sandwiches are served with fries and pair wonderfully with their assortment of cold draft beers ($8).
An expansive patio bar, Heights & Co. is a great place to catch a game, especially when draft beer is on special for $5, and burgers for $10!
Calling all Astros fans! The sleek Downtown tavern is offering its happy-hour menu prices immediately following all Astros games. For late games, GJ Tavern offers happy hour prices from 9pm until closing. This hotspot — outfitted with plenty of TVs — is the place to celebrate a big win.
Gameday specials at Kenny & Ziggy's
Nothing says gameday like hot dogs and beer, and Kenny & Ziggy’s artisan franks are made with an old family recipe, which includes natural casings that give them the perfect “snap.” Catch the World Series games in the Spritzer Bar and these hot dogs with the works for $5, plus all draft beers for $4 each.

La Calle Tacos & Tortas is celebrating the Astros with themed cocktails and taco giveaways. The Mexican eatery will give a free order of street tacos to the guest who guesses the final game score correctly for each game via the restaurant's scoreboard located at the Downtown and Bagby locations.
The Astrorita at Maize
Out west, tuck into a delicioso fish burger, the hamburguesa de pescado (fried striped bass fillet, avocado, slaw, tomatoes, sweet potato fries), for $10 and wash it down with an Astrorita (tequila blanco, blue curaçao, lime, orange, agave, chili lime salt) for $8.
Osso & Kristalla pizza
No wonder this modern and breezy Downtown eatery from Astros owner Jim Crane calls itself “Astros Headquarters.” Its location steps away from Minute Maid Park is a no brainer, and the wood-fired pizzas are splendid. Weekday happy hour features beer, cocktails, and wine ($5-$7) plus Italian-kissed bar bites — think calamari fritta, bruschetta, Calabrese shrimp and osso polpette sliders with marinara and Parmesan ($6-$8). A steal!
