Solid in every way!

A nice, high end steak house on the Plaza. A rich feel of the place, very good service, and excellent food. The only reason I dont rate this higher is that it feels like so many other high end steak houses. Maybe more creativity in the food? Not sure, however, you wont be disappointed in the... read more

Houston's is a required stop whenever we are in KC. They have the best ribs in the world! Not just in Kansas City...In the world! We've eaten at Houston's in other cities as well, and they are consistently very good.

Houston's is actually a chain restaurant, but is known by different names in different states. I wanted a steak being in Missouri and in the middle of America's heartland and farming community. Who could better know steaks? Houston's is in a large outdoor shopping center known as Country Club Plaza and close to my Marriott hotel. So, I walked to... More

We ate at the Houston's in Country Club Plaza on a trip out west. We were staying at the Hampton Inn there. Houston's is located amongst all the shops and only a few blocks from the hotels in this area. We sat at the window seats in the bar so we did not have to wait for a table. It... More

If you've never tried the Chili (only available on Saturday), you need to do it before you die. It's an amazing dish with small, tender chunks of steak in a sauce that is perfectly seasoned (not too much heat). It is garnished with freshly shaved sharp cheddar cheese and diced white onions and served with freshly warmed tortilla chips, which... More

We were guests Sat night about 8:00. We got to the lounge early so we could enjoy their Absolut screwdrivers made with the fresh squeezed orange juice, to die for. Once our table was ready we enjoyed the smoked salmon appetizer which they told us was smoked in house. It was flaky and so moist served with a delicious sauce... More

Very good service, and excellent steak. My drink was actually too strong so no skimping on the alcohol. Very clean and comfortable.

I went in with friends with no reservations, so I expected to wait. We were told 45-50 minutes. Over an hour later we were seated. We ordered food right away. I had the hickory burger with fries. I asked that the hickory sauce not even be served and it wasn't. The burger was good, not exceptional. The fries, however were... More

We had a problem with our food. It was cold. The manager immediately came to our table and solved the problem. She wanted us to be happy. We were very happy, and we would definitely return. The food is excellent.
