“You can't go wrong here. Absolutely great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

Houston's in Memphis is the most consistant and professionally managed restaurant in town. I'm a long time memphis resident and foody and this place keeps topping topping the list when the discussion of "Best of" comes up. IMO they have the best prime rib in town, in fact I would say it's the best Beef dish in memphis period. The fish sandwich and french dip are also best in town. Another pleasant thing about Houstons is that their servers are some of the only properly trained servers in the city. There is a reason that this place has a wait of 10 to 30 minutes to be seated all day every day and it's because of the complete package.

“Better than NY!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

I have been to many Houston's restaurants in NY and NY City and was not happy with the food or service or cleanliness. This Houston's restaurant was the exception to the chain, with great service, great food and a lively upscale crowd

“Always Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

My wife and I realy love this place. The atmosphere is always great. The servers always friendly. The food is always great, but a little pricey. My wife loves the Prime Rib and I have recently started ordering a Hickory Burger with fries. Not too long back I tried the ribs and the were great.
