Even the water is delicious.

I had not eaten at Houston's in awhile. I took my daughter to lunch. The menu is not as extensive as I had remembered but my chicken salad was still on the menu and it was as delicious as ever. This is one of my favorite dishes in the world. My daughter had the chili. It was smokey and... read more

I met my cousin and his 91 year old mother here for dinner. I had ahi tuna and a salad and both were excellent. The portion size was adequate but not so large as to make me overeat. The tuna was cooked perfectly and the salad included fruit and greens, perfectly blended. My meal was in great contrast to the... More

We met another couple for a 1:00 pm lunch and glad that we had called ahead for reservations on a busy Spring Saturday. We were seated in a corner booth that was perfect for conversation and catching up with our friends. Each of us tried a different sandwich - all of which seemed like great choices: French dip and a... More

Great food, outstanding staff, and all in a great atmosphere, and casual dress accepted. And even the bar was very efficient and very attentive. The kitchen was very fast, so short wait for food both at the bar and in the restaurant. And food was outstanding!

This was our second time dining at Houston's in Scottsdale. We had a very disappointing evening (this was supposed to be a special occasion celebrating a birthday). The steak was good, (not excellent which you would expect for the price) but other than that I have very little positive to say about the food or our dining experience as a... More

Having lunch at Houston restaurant is good and quick. The service is fair and efficient. In case of mistake on your order they give the plate for free. That is very, very fair. Do not forget to let good tip. I have a Ahi burger not fat and very tasty. My friend choose a chicken sandwich. It is on his... More

Never had a bad meal here or any other Houston's. There are a lot that other restaurants could learn from Houston's. Simple menu, performed well, top notch service this is what they do. Ribs, chicken tenders, burgers and fries some of the best you will find.

Snobby place...no Gluten free except a Willty chopped salad. Hamburgers at $15 are not cooked to your request. French fries limp and look like $ bag fries served at fast food places. To much effort to give you ice in your water. Blinding light can't shut the blinds..oh well. A $65 lunch with no drinks or tip. Went home and... More
