Shaquille O’Neal has been spending time in Houston. The NBA Hall of Famer and host of TNT’s “Inside the NBA” was spotted last weekend at a food distribution site at NRG Center, where he was awarded an act of kindness and humanitarian award by Mayor Sylvester Turner.
On Monday, the 48-year-old grabbed dinner at Jax Grill at 1613 Shepherd Dr. The casual restaurant serves from-scratch and mesquite-grilled fare including a signature half-pound burger, fajitas, Cajun gumbo and steaks.
O’Neal and his friend, Houston senior police officer Kenneth Miles, were seated in the main dining room. The duo stayed around 45 minutes, with the 7′ 1″ O’Neal ordering chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes.
Before departing, O’Neal stopped to chat with guests and posed for a photo with the staff.
