About This Quiz

Does the Katy Freeway really go to Katy? Can you really drive all the way onto Galveston Island without taking a ferry?  Where is the Orange Show (and what the heck is it)?  These are things that native Houstonians should know by heart.  If you are one, or if you're just a lover of the biggest city in Texas, this quiz is right up your alley!

Houston is a tremendously sprawling, fast-growing, multicultural megacity whose dimensions can be truly awe-inspiring the first time you see it. With no real geographic boundaries to expansion, the west and north sides of the city have expanded outward at a truly amazing rate. What were cow pastures a decade ago are now home to skyscrapers hosting multinational corporations, housing developments and retail and restaurant complexes.

And those restaurants!  Tony Bourdain once said that if he ever did a "No Reservations" show in Houston, it would focus on the Asian food. Houston's vibrant Asian culture offers flavors from every corner of the continent. Mix that with barbecue, our beloved Tex-Mex and flavors from all over the world and you've got a delicious menu on offer citywide.

So get on the Loop (how many loops does Houston have, anyway), find a cozy restaurant, order some food and take this quiz!
