Consistently excellent!

We've eaten here numerous times because of the atmosphere, great service and excellent food and drink! Our recent visit was no different. We started with a nice, crisp glass of chardonnay, which paired nicely with our large, fresh and tasty salad. Service was prompt and attentive. Only area of... read more

A trip to Scottsdale isn't the same without a bellyful of the ribs in Houston's! They are always the most succulent, plentiful, sweetest ribs you could have and come with a mountain of thin fries. Unsurprisingly you may need to wait a while to be seated but there's plenty of space and plenty of staff to look out for you.... More

Houston's has a very good reputation, and the volume of business supports that. Unfortunately, when I ate there recently, I had problems with all aspects of my meal. Some portions were cold when I received my food, while other portions were burned. To say I was disappointed is an understatement!

This is without a doubt my favorite restaurant in the Scottsdale area. Always consistent. Always great. We have been there multiple times and it is always excellent. The wine selection is terrific. Great selection, great prices. They make a seriously awesome martini. I am very particular about my martinis and they are always top notch. Took some friends this time... More

We had been in Houstons each time we came to Scottsdale and loved the French dip. We came for lunch and all four of us ordered the sandwich. The au jus is great as always but the meat had a lot of fat on it this time. It was definitely not up to its past standards. For 20.00 wash for... More

My friend and I popped into Houston's for late night appetizers and wine and it was excellent! The spinach and artichoke dip "Chicago style" is fabulous. Would never have thought of the flavor combinations. And the chilled shrimp appetizer was above our expectations. We will definitely be making dinner reservations next time we are in town. Clearly it's a popular... More

make a reservation and expect to have a wonderful dinner. The shrimp cocktail is large and delicious. Service was very efficient. The atmosphere is warm. My steak was absolutely perfect. Everything a good steakhouse should be!

Found this place on Google Maps and was well rewarded for making the trip here. After a short wait for a table(on a Monday night) we were seated in a nice booth were dinner conversation was easy and the service was prompt. The BBQ ribs were really flavorful, and genuinely fall-off-the-bone tender. The fries were cooked just right, and all... More

Some locals suggested this place after we found several other steak houses closed for lunch. Very friendly service and great food. We had the Hawaiian Steak.
