Best Chicken Chipotle Nachos

Houlihan's is a great chain restaurant and this one is one of the best. The atmosphere is the best and I think because it is a college town and most of the staff attend K-State. I had some of the best Chicken Chipotle Nachos and stuffed mushrooms ever. Don't miss out on this place.

Trendy food. Well prepared. Everyone in our party was quite pleased with their food and the service. The Miso Salmon was very tasty and came with perfect Edamame. Recommenced.

Went on a rainy afternoon and was hardly anyone in the restaurant. Our food took forever to come out and the waiter forgot to put in my sons food and promptly blamed it on the cook saying they take longer to make chicken fingers. My fish tacos were gross no flavor at all the fish was fried with no seasoning.... More

My family and I had a great meal, with good food ( the KC steak was very good, and the apple pie tasty), and service. We had a toddler in our group and he was happy as well. Let them know if you are celebrating your birthday.

This past weekend, my parents were there for a birthday and wedding anniversary celebration. We were seated promptly and menus brought to us. While making the order we found that that they had run out of baked potatoes--mind you this is at 5:30 and they don't serve a baked potato until 4:30. There are at least three supermarkets within a... More

Located in or next to the Campus Holiday Inn. Noisy on one night but the Royals were on tv, quiet the next. Had two appetizers, the edamame and firecracker shrimp. Both quite good.

I love eating at Houlihan's! The menu has lots of varied choices. The service is always very attentive. There is a very nice ambiance in the dining room. This visit I tried the healthy dinner salad with greens, kale, goat cheese, almonds, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, poppyseed dressing and topped with grilled chicken-delicious!

Shared the scallop entrée. It was delicious there was a healthy helping of risotto and 8ish scallops (large portion). It was a great size to share after having an appetizer at a bar. Very impressed with portion sizes for the whole table.
