Excellent roasted artichoke to begin. Seared tuna salad, veggie burger, and regular hamburger were delicious.

I thoroughly enjoyed my filet mignon. It was perfectly seasoned and cooked. The sided dishes were very good too. Service was impeccable. The atmosphere is very calming after a long day of work. Great place for a business meeting or a relaxing evening with friends/family. I don't recommend taking children though.

Been going for years ... decades, actually. the menu is excellent from top to bottom. The off-menu chicken strips are the best in the universe. Plus, zero corkage fee.

I wanted to go to a good KC steak house and my friends recommended this restaurant. The menu and prices had changed substantially since they last dined there. They only had two beef offerings - a rib-eye or filet. My friend's wife and I opted for the filet and he had the tuna. All were excellently prepared and brought out... More

Ok, I understand that people think I am crazy to pay $18 for a French Dip sandwich, but they have never had one at Houston's. They slice their prime rib super thin and pile it high on an amazing fresh roll - it's a small piece of Heaven! They have amazing ribs, Hawaiian Rib Eyes and Chicken fingers - yes... More

This restaurant was recommended by a local resident and it did not disappoint. My husband had the KC steak special and I had the prime rib. It melted in my mouth and my husband said his was delicious. Good selection of wine and beer with great ambience. Defintely recommend this place. The only surprise was no bread served prior to...

Really enjoyed the food at Houston's with friends recently. I had never been there and was surprised by the overall quality and quantity of food served. I had a steak, and it was delicious, as was the baked potato. The salad was also tasty. Totally shocked that desserts only included three items, all of which did not sound appetizing and... More

Although there is a wait, the food is absolutely worth it. However, I was concerned to see young children sitting at the bar. There needs to be a larger waiting area for families so that patrons of the bar can actually have a place to sit and drink.

Being from Kansas City, the undisputed King of Bar-B-Que, we know BBQ!! The ribs at Houston are simply stated awesome! They are baby back ribs that fall off the bone where you will not need a knife at all. If you plan to eat them off the bone, the way ribs should be eaten, be prepared as they simply fall... More
