You seriously can't go wrong with Houstons. Casual dinner or special occasion, this is the place. Order the Thai noodle salad, ribs, simple Caesar salad. It's all good!

Everything is literally tasty and delicious, including the margaritas! I tried the California sushi rolls, 5 stars and ordered their chicken entree, delicious!

Came for dinner on Sunday with my wife. We where celebrating valentines since both of us work on tuesday. Everything was great. This place is our place for dinner and drinks.

Great food. Long waits for tables. Not worth the wait, but if you don't mind delay, the food is outstanding and waitstaff is excellent.

Excellent steaks and great service with a well deserved reputation. It is a busy restaurant and reservations are a must in my opinion but on an ad hoc basis, if you're prepared to wait for a table the food is worth it.

Food and drinks good but a tad overpriced. Nice atmosphere, servers are pleasant. BBQ ribs are quite good.

The minute you walk into Houston's your mouth will begin to water. The smokey smell is tantalizing. My favorite meal is the Hawaiian Rib Eye. I usually get it with shoestring fries. They are perfectly thin and crisp. Our office is a few blocks away and EVERYONE picks Houston's for their birthday lunch. Great portions and delicious food.

Don't even think of going here without a reservation, as it is always packed. Portions are large with an average presentation and average taste. Why it is so popular I do not know. Maybe it's the easy-to-find location. Go to any steakhouse and get what they serve here.

Thank transplanted2016
