Over the Fourth of July, you probably partook in some "American food” – hot dogs, hamburgers and the like. But, outside of those staples, how would you define "American food" these days? And where are some of the best places to get it in Greater Houston?

Our group of local foodies discuss their definitions and their favorite places to get such dishes in this month's installment of The Full Menu.

Our Houston food writers are Eric Sandler of CultureMap Houston, Katharine Shilcutt of Houstonia Magazine, and David Leftwich of Sugar and Rice Magazine.
