Terrific restaurant. Love their baby back ribs, roast beef sandwich and everything on the menu we have ever tried. Julienne French fries are excellent. Desserts are delicious. Can't say enough about Houston's. Service is great too.

the restaurant is known for their ribs & burgers, but they also do salads, fish, sushi, & best french dip sandwich! They also serve seasonal vegetables and the KeyLime pie is not to be missed when offered seasonally.

We were big fans of Houston's when it first opened, but hadn't been there in a while so we decided to pay another visit to celebrate a family accomplishment. The reservation time available was later than we would have preferred but it was still ok. We were seated relatively close to our reservation time at a table pretty much in... More

When a relative invited me to lunch at Houston's, I was underwhelmed by the strip mall location but soon after walking in, I was impressed. Warm lighting, alternative and Jazz ambient music, nice booths. Wait staff was attentive and well informed. Martinis were perfect, as was the prawn and macadamia nut sushi roll that we had as appetizer. The sashimi... More

Used to frequent Houston's, enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Felt quite the opposite on the last visit. Not sure whether Houston's has gone downhill or I've gotten more discriminating. Food was not cooked properly so we sent it back. Martini was served SORTA chilled, but not really. And the team service approach failed us, maybe everyone thought someone else had... More

This was a good place not far from LAX for a business meeting. We had the smoked salmon as an app. My guest had the bass which was good and I had the salmon meal. All of it was very good. Lunch prices where high. I would go back again.

We frequent Houston's/Hillstone in Dallas and also love Bandera's in Chicago. So it was natural for us to walk over to this Houston's from our hotel. It's really amazing how consistent these restaurants are operated. The ribs and prime rib are exactly the same high quality. The artichoke spinach dip and apple walnut cobbler are also the same perfect preparation.... More

I love almost all of George Biel's restaurants and this one is no exception. Service here is always outstanding. A++++. I dine in the bar area on almost every visit at this location! This Houston's comes with a sushi bar that rolls out some outstanding rolls. I have tried basically everything on the menu and truly love the following items... More

Waitresses are too slow and too difficult to get a table inmediately. They should accept reservations by pohone
