Very Good

Houston's is a chain, and I've ate there before. It is nice, and this was no exception. I had the fish sandwich, and it was superb. There was a nice bar, if that is your thing.

A friend recommended Houston's. I needed an ideal place to take very important clients. My friend was right and the dinner was ideal. First, our server (Rickie) was absolutely the most delightful person! She was so helpful and cheerful (all unfeigned). If I were to start a restaurant in Arizona, I would steal Rickie and pay her whatever she asked.... More

First, I want to mention that I went to Houston's within the last week. I was in a party of five, a couple of whom are very difficult to deal with. Just picky folks. We had a waiter who provided probably the best service I've ever had in a restaurant. He didn't miss a beat. Kept his smile the whole... More

Great service; lighter fare or filling meals - always good food and drink. It is generally one of our first stops when arriving in Scottsdale.

The meat from these ribs fall off the bones- and taste great. A casual place and good for kids. The same ownership as Banderas in Old Town, but to keep the 2 places different they no longer allow Banderas to offer pork ribs- just beef.

This has to be one of the best casual upscale restaurants in the area. One sure not to miss on a visit to Scottsdale. Subdued and romantic lighting with the best service staff in the immediate area. The french dip is actually prime rib and have been going there for many years and the quality never wanes. Always a favorite... More

I have always been a fan of Houston's, my love affair is almost over. The smoked salmon appetizer is my go to order. At lunch, I ordered it, my friend had the fried chicken. It was 11:30am and my salmon was unfortunately overcooked. You need to ask for it having been made that day. My friend liked her chicken. We... More

In early April, I visited the Houston's on Scottsdale Road. After waiting up front and being ignored by about 10 servers, I finally went to the bar to ask if I could be seated. One of the waitresses seated me in a booth. She said she'd bring me my diet coke while I look at the menu. That was the... More
