We went here early evening on Friday, just five minute walk from our hotel. It was not busy at all, but after thirty minutes it was. Had a table booth, our server was Karla. Placed our drink order for a mojito, we waited and waited, and finally had to ask where is our drink?? She said they had to make... More

The food, the drinks and the service...all fall below average. It's a good looking establishment but nothing else about it holds up in my opinion. I've gone a few times and just refuse to waste my money again.

I had previously visited here late one evening for a quick bite and drink. This trip was with my wife and was very nice. We were winging it this day and did not have a reservation but we were happy to take a place at the bar and eat. Todd was our server and was impressive, knowledgeable, fun and professional.... More

I come here when in or near Manhattan Beach. Best ribs ever. I am sure the steak are good as well but for 16 years I have never had anything else but the ribs. Try them! If super hungry add a salad or bowl of tortilla soup (Tuesdays). The soup is on my list of top five ever. Enjoy!

You need to try Hawaiian Rib-Eye! Service was polite and helpful letting us know the options available. The drinks, like any other bar, In the other hand the food was awesome.

I regularly dine at Houston's when visiting the LA office. The menu is varied and fresh and is rotated regularly. It's always busy and the atmosphere is great, although the lighting levels appear a bit dim, especially when coming in from the midday Californian sun! I especially like the decor and shape of the booth seating areas. Facilities are clean... More

I was introduced to Houstons nearly 20 years ago and remain a fan - the El Segundo location is yet another example of how a chain can do it right. I can't tell you what to order but do expect unique flavors. Large portions aren't Houston's forte but gut-fill isn't something I value anyway. To me, the Black Beans and... More

Enjoy the sushi and salads. The prime rib sandwich is a meal in its self. We enjoy the ice cream sundae when they have it. The chocolate sauce is terrific

I've traveled to this part of the country for the past 10 years and never miss a chance to dine at Houston's. Yes, it's a chain of restaurants but finding a higher quality of food and service is almost impossible so forget the fact that they're a chain for a moment. For the curious, this is part of the Hillstone... More
