Houston's may be the only chain restaurant I visit. I don't go often, but I'm nearly always pleased when I do. Finally tried the prime rib, which I'll rate 8/10. It was cooked to specification and was a prime, decent-sized cut, so the $30 price tag was acceptable. But I always miss the Houston's veggie burger when I don't order... More

While on a business trip in Kansas City, my customer took me to dinner at Houston’s Restaurant in the Kansas City Country Club Plaza area. The entire Plaza area is loaded with upscale restaurants and clothing stores, which makes it a very nice place to visit. I had seen Houston’s Restaurant in several other large cities, but I had never... More

We used to have a Houston's in Nashville, TN, but it closed. When we saw them in the Country Club Plaza area, we knew that's where dinner was going to be at. The hostess and wait staff were great and the food was awesome.

Hamburger was great, prime rib dip just ok not much flavor. Crab cakes very good but not worth $30. Atmosphere was very dark, wait time was exact. Pop comes in a bottle, so don't expect refills. Have complimentary bread, but was offered any.

First. Get a reservation or be prepared to wait or eat at the bar. This night was unusually crowded as its Thanksgiving weekend so I can forgive my waitress for forgetting the hot tea or serving cold soup and she did credit is for those. I rarely eat prime rib and they serve a great one. Also try the chicken... More

Love this place. Only negative is that it's expensive and can be very busy. The ribs and hawaiian ribeye are amazing.

My title might be wrong. For all I know, they have some wonderful vegan dishes. I wouldn't know. I was in KC for the World Series and only ate their ribs. They were as good as I remembered from the years I lived there, and the service was excellent.

We visited the location in the Plaza on Saturday evening at prime dinner hour. Our wait was about 45 minutes. The staff knows how to turn over tables quickly. The food was fantastic as always!

Business dinner and all was as I expected.... except... who the heck puts mayonnaise on a Prime Rib Sandwich? Not a big fan but they made it right. Also the Couscous is amazing.... better than a starchy baked potato....

I have been eating at the various Houston's around the country for many years. The food quality is consistently spectacular. This particular restaurant has modeled its service after many of the up tempo college football offenses. Super fast. We ordered appetizers, drinks, salads and a main course and were in an out in 45 minutes or less. If I am... More
