Not sure when Houston changed the brand to Hillstone, but no matter the name, this restaurant is still THE place for ribs. The atmosphere is great and service is exquisite. Kitchen is always clean and you feel like you are in a high-end restaurant.
Go there for brunch, lunch dinner or any other time you will not be disappointed. If you are visiting San-Francisco, you probably will visit the Embarcedero, I strongly recommend you have your lunch or dinner there. Yes, it is more expensive than the street vendors, but it is the best ribs you will get anywhere in Calfornia. The other food is not bad either, but the ribs is definitely their specialty.
