Our Story

Calliope’s journey started almost 30 years ago in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, with its first restaurant called Peter’s Poboys. Many think Calliope’s is a musical instrument or family name. However, those are not where the name stems. Calliope is the name of the street leaving the French Quarter, taking you to I10 leading to Houston. 

Truong and Celine, the owners, have their own story to tell about how Calliope’s came to be. The story starts back in 1995 when Truong’s Mother, Linda, opened their first restaurant. It quickly gained popularity and success as it grew to three locations. As the years passed, Linda’s children grew up and moved away for college. After settling in Houston, those same children decided it was time to carry on their Mother’s legacy and opened what is now Calliope’s Poboys Restaurant.

After over 10 years of recognized success in Houston, Truong and Celine have decided it is time to share the brand they have built with others and help them build their own legacy with a Calliope’s franchise. 

The Calliope's Difference

Calliope’s model is very different from other seafood restaurants. Calliope’s is the only cajun seafood restaurant in Houston with a drive-thru, yes, high quality, fresh, Cajun Style with an average ticket time of just 6-8 minutes. But, this is not ‘fast-food,’ it’s fresh food done fast.
