“Sorry I went !”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Well, I have to tell you.....I use to go to Houston's all the time and loved it. Best cole slaw, fabulous roasted chicken, just plain great food. Hadn't been in quite some time so recommended it for a night out to celebrate a friend's birthday. Very, very disappointing. Food was not that great. The chicken must have been a baby, it was so small and they don't have their great cole slaw anymore nor many of my long time favorites. I won't be going back there any time soon.

“Always a Good Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Good ambiance, very good food and service. The pricing is fair, although possibly a bit high. The food was excellent and the service could not have been better. The bartender was a little snooty but our dinner waitress more than made up for him. The wait staff works as a team with different people delivering dishes and picking up dishes. We were there on a Wednesday evening in October. At 7 PM the place was full with a 30+ minute wait. Recommend reservations. We're looking forward to returning.
