I doubt there is.
Maybe have an uber pick it up. Probably like $60-$70 FROM the food places to IAH
$40-$50 HOU

you can try genesis.
Uber can pickup. Or try favor a new app that will bring you food from anywhere. They have genesis menu in the app. So you just choose what you want and they deliver it.
Here's my referral link if you are interested.

Genesis Steak House and Wine Bar is a great restaurant option in Houston.  Ambiance allows for entertaining non-kosher clients.  Smoked short rib tacos 8/10.  Gumbo Soup 9/10. The Bruce Burger with fried egg and pastrami is great 9/10.  Homemade onion rings on the side 8/10.  Desert was lacking 5/10.  On the next night I went in (didn’t take any pictures) had the chicken kabobs which was great.  The point of the story is I asked them to substitute in Brussel sprouts (listed on the side dish menu) in place of the spinach.  They did so without hesitation and no up charge on it.  Classy place.  Guess all relative to where you are coming from.  I don’t live in NYC or Chicago.  My kosher options are limited and they usually don’t care about making you happy because they know you are limited in your kosher options.  So the fact Genesis did that for me says a lot about the place in the “small town” of Houston.

Ate here 4 times last week and will be there another 4 times next week.   The prices are extremely fair and - I agree - the food is top notch.  "The Judah" sandwich for lunch was superb - brisket was perfect.  Tropical summer salad with Ahi Tuna was also a nice lunch option.  "The Steve" (burger + mushrooms) was also great.   Also enjoyed a steak.  Overall, really top notch gem in Houston.
