Have eaten at the Houston's in Pasadena a number of times and found both their cheeseburgers and sushi dishes very good. Only draw back is the unusually long wait times to get a table around dinner times.

The flavor combinations invite you to eat more The ambiance gives you the feeling that you have your own private space, even though there is tremendous activity around you It is clear that management thinks and plans to create an enjoyable dinning experience.

I've been going to Houston for over 10 years now and I always enjoyed it. This time it was close to a disaster. Big part of it is the fact that the place was overcrowded - good for the cash flow, bad for the quality. Staff was polite but at the same time they were hurried to serve all that... More

I have been going to Houston's for many years with a group of friends for our annual Christmas dinner. The service and atmosphere are great and their BBQ ribs and spinach dip are delicious. Look forward to enjoying them every year!
