“Excellent service, food and ambience ...every single time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2009

It's always a treat to dine at Houston's in Pasadena. The food is delectable, the service is top-notch, and the ambience is cozy without being pretentious. I highly recommend the rib dinner with cous cous and any other side. The ribs fall off the bone and are tender and sweet. The cous cous has currants and almonds, absolutely scrumptious!

Quite a bit over rated, unfortunately. It is a good steak house, if you are looking for you typical steak meal, with all the trimmings. I just didn't think it was anything special.

Pretty good ribs, nothing too special, though the less adventurous types seem to favor its food. Expensive but really amazing drinks.
