There are many different names for this groups restaurants and they have similar menus. I chose the one because I am very fond of the grilled artichokes. We took family to Houston's while visiting Kansas City. It was very busy on a Saturday night but the service was in no way compromised. Our servers were always present and helpful. Our... More

OMGoodness. If you love a sweet marinated steak, then look no more. The Hawaiian steak is a ribeye that is amazing. Houston's has the original Spinach and Artichoke dip served with chips, salsa and sour cream. The salads are plentiful and perfect. Homemade buttermilk garlic dressing is an excellent topper

Great food and great service. I had the veggie burger and it was delish! It had been a long time since I have eaten here, and it didn't disappoint. Everyone had great meals. Attentive staff too.

Excellent food and service as expected. Never done this before, but we asked for another table to get away from other LOUD patrons!

The four of us loved this restaurant. Excellent service. Spinach/artichoke dip is the best ever. Friendly waiter. Didn't like that they don't provide to go cups.

I'm giving this establishment just an average rating since half the meals were great and the other half not so good. Service was a little slow too. The chicken with the apricot glaze was delicious. Unfortunately, the restaurant had such low lighting, it was too dark to see if we got all the meat off the bones. I could have... More

I have to say I was surprised when two members of my family, not typically big burgers eaters, both ordered hamburgers...and thought they were great. I ordered a salad (a safe bet at most Houston's) and thought it was just OK. Go for the burger.

I have been here a few times before, and it is always wonderful food that does not disappoint. We have had burgers, steak, ribs, prime rib, salads, and everything is always so delicious. The service has always been great, although this last time, the waitress rushed us a bit. She tried taking my salad away before I was finished, took... More
