Who is Bite Me Houston?

Bite Me Houston was created in 2009 by Mike Cortez to write about the amazing melting pot that is the Houston culinary scene. The goal was not only to spotlight the restaurant and bar scene but highlight news, events and people in the industry. He has been featured in The Houston Chronicle, Thrillist, Barstool Magazine and Do512.
Aside from writing, Mike has created some great events over the years such as the Texas Tequila Throwdown, Texas Vodka Throwdown and co-created the Texas Tequila & Margarita Festival. Mike is also the creator of Texas Beer Guide which featured news around the Texas craft beer community and he is the author of the book “Beer Lover’s Texas: Best Breweries, Brewpubs & Beer Bars”.
After 7yrs living in Austin, Mike has returned to Houston and is ready to get back to taking a bite out of Houston. I look forward to seeing you at the table.
