Always Great Ribs

We eat here every time we're in Houston, we've been going for about 28 years. The atmosphere is what I call "clubby" with dark red leather booths and dim lighting. I have tried almost everything on the menu over the years, but settled on the juicy, tender, ribs every time I go, that's what I go... read more

I went here on 12\13\2015 for the first time after reading a few reviews and wanting to try something different. The food is top notch, restaurant has a great atmosphere, the wait staff was helpful and knew everything about the menu. It is expensive so if you're looking for a cheap meal this isn't the place, but if you're looking... More

I love the atmosphere at Houston's. They have a wide variety of menu items, and I've ordered most of them throughout the years. Never had a bad meal there. I love Houston's, and it's always fairly crowded.

We've been faithful diners at this particular Houston's since it opened (late '70's?), and the food has always been consistently very good to outstanding. It's not what one would call "gourmet", but it is delicious. Our favorite is the prime rib, always prepared to perfection and served in a generous portion. (My wife makes two meals of one serving.) The... More

While the restaurant has been around a while, the food stays consistent, and the crowds loyal, I have had many different items on the menu and always am pleased, and should there be a problem, it is corrected right away. I would say what ever you try, you will not be disappointed.

This is a nice looking restaurant with a somewhat limited but excellent menu. I had prime rib and it was served on the bone with mashed potatoes and some greens. I went in without reservations and was able to get a table In about 30 minutes after a nice stay at the bar. This would be a good location for... More
