We had sushi and it was well made and fresh. Service was excellent. Houston’s is a chain and family owned. Servers are all professional and help each other to ensure you receive quick service. Good restaurant for a business lunch. Sushi averaged about $17 a...More

After a false alarm bomb scare threw a wrench into our initial reservations we popped into Houston’s for a late dinner. My prime rib was amazingly good - I will go back solely for that entree. My only critique was a lack of a solid...More

Houston’s has excellent food with excellent service. Everything from seafood to steak, even sushi. Make a reservation though cause the secret had long been out about how great this place is.

I always hold business meetings at Houston's. It's freeway accessible with adequate parking. A large, open dining room, attentive service, reliably good food. They use real cream in the coffee, so don't be put off by the clouds in your cup. The burgers are delicious.

As far as I know, they don't take reservations. I always go mid to late afternoon, even on Mondays. They are jammed but worth the wait. I'm in LA all the time and this is my favorite restaurant. Especially the burgers... More
