One of My Favorite Places!

Everything on the menu is good! The hamburgers and salads are incredible and one of the best steaks yopu will eat is right here. The ribs are amazing. You can't go wrong! We eat here at least once every trip we make to the city.

Houston's has been consistently excellent with every visit. Personal favorites ar the Gulf coast fish sandwich and the amazing apple wallet cobbler a la mode for dessert. Nice ambiance and just overall great place for lunch or dinner.

Houston's is a Houston tradition for many natives. Great bar, time-honored menu, and a wonderful staff. A range of options for all tastes, and one of the best grilled artichokes anywhere. You may have to wait a bit, but it's worth it!

Went there for dinner last night. A small wait due to the popularity but worth the wait. Got a seat in the bar (perfect when alone). The service was very good, smiling and attentive. The food (I got the prime filet) was excellent! Wine choices good and waiters very helpful on wine recommendations. Can only recommend it!

Hosted 3 business associates for lunch, service was quick despite the restaurant being crowded. Server was very attentive to our needs, we had the Hawaiian rib-eye which was recommended by one of my guest it was very good. This is an old Houston establishment that is consistently good for a middle of the road restaurant.

This is my daughter's favorite place to eat hamburger. I don't understand why you have to pay $16 just to eat a cheeseburger when you can get it somewhere at a lesser price. But since this is her favorite place, we dragged our feet to please her. We waited for about 15-20 minutes to be seated but I did not... More

OMGoodness! Had dinner here with friends while visiting Houston and the Prime Rib is one of the best I've ever eaten. Of course, the really friendly wait staff also was a plus to my wonderful dining experience.
