Ex-Rockets star James Harden’s Houston restaurant doing its part in severe winter storm
James Harden is no longer a member of the Houston Rockets, but he continues to do his part in the community in Houston. Amid the severe winter storm that is taking place in the South, Harden’s restaurant is doing its part to help those in need.
Harden’s Houston restaurant, which is called “Thirteen” to resemble his number on the court, is going to give out 3,000 meals Saturday to help people get food. While you can pick up the food yourself, the restaurant is also delivering the food to those that aren’t able to make it to the restaurant.
James Harden’s new restaurant "Thirteen" will be giving out 3,000 meals today (February 20, 2021) from 3pm-6pm as a drive-thru distribution in front of Thirteen, located at 1911 Bagby St. People can also text 346-857-9617 to have food delivered to them. #KHOU11 @JHarden13

Earlier this month, not long after James Harden was traded from the Rockets to the Brooklyn Nets, it was announced that he’d be opening a restaurant in Houston. It didn’t take long for fans to send his restaurant terrible reviews before it even opened its doors to the public.
Harden spent eight seasons with the Rockets, helping them reach the playoffs in each season he was in Houston. During his time with the organization, he quickly became a superstar, cementing himself as one of the best players on a Houston-based team.
The All-Star shooting guard, despite his off-court interests that has caught the attention of fans, did a ton for the Houston community. And even though he no longer wears a uniform for the Rockets, Harden remains committed to making an impact to the community that embraced him and showed him love for several years.
