One of the best steaks I've had

I've enjoyed steaks at some of the best places, Ruth's Chris, III Forks, Perry's, etc. And they are all awesome. But for some reason, the filet at Houston's was near perfection. Right sized; hot temp and a light char on the outside. Could nearly cut with my fork alone. Awesome! Coupled with... read more

I was in Houston, TX for a couple of days and wanted to try a variety of restaurants. I was in the mood for a steak and went to Houston's. It was my first time there, so I didn't know what to expect. I inadvertently parked on the backside of the restaurant so getting to the front door was a... More

Great brisket, that's all i ever order here. So many size offerings on the menu, will please those looking for something light or something hearty. Like the different types of bbq sauce the offer too. Wish they had mashed potatoes as a side, but the other offerings are ok. Nice lil bar too tucked away in this restaurant.

Our Waitress was excellent. Food presentation was good. Ordered their signature Ribs and they were cold when they arrived. My Husband was disappointed in brussel sprouts and his mash potatoes but thought prime rib was excellent. Chips and salsa were outstanding along with 5 Nut Brownie. Special note...we had reservations and went at 5:30 and place was already full. When... More

Houstons was one of my favorite places in Nashville so I was very excited to go to dinner in Houston. There is a very lush, upscale feeling to the atmosphere. The diners were an obvious mix of business types and college crowd. My seared tuna was done perfectly over a bed of greens with avocado and mango. My husband's entree... More

My family always takes me to Houston's for my birthday every year and they never disappoint. The steak is ALWAYS delicious and their cocktails hit the spot! This last visit they went so far as to switch my cocktail into a fresh one out the cooler! The details always count!

Good ol'american food. Consistent (been coming here for 20 years) quality of food and service. A staple, a darling, a feel good place to be in. Prices are fine, food is amazing. Spinach artichoke dip and baby back ribs are a must!!!
