I've eaten most items on the menu and everything is fresh amd prepared well.If you like cobbler and walnuts Apple Walnut Cobbler is yummy! My only slight would be... More

There used to be a Houston's in Century City where I work so got to go a few times each month. Now, I only go on random occasions to other locations a few times a year. I went to this location yesterday for lunch. I think their French Dip sandwich is the best there is. Their cheeseburger is very good... More

Houstons, has been at this location for quite some time. However, it is clean, kept up, the staff is friendly, the menu changes, and the food is very good. I ordered a martini and the hawaiian rib eye. delicious. My started with a special sushi roll, and had a steak salad. What is nice, is the consistency. You know what... More

Very good restaurant to celebrate special occasions, but not a good restaurant for kids. Bar like dark atmosphere. Noisy. My younger brother-in-law likes the cheeseburger and Caesar salad. My older brother-in-law tried the beef dip sandwich which came with a small salad. He liked it. They had a glass of the Abita Light beer, which they liked. My wife had... More

My co-worker suggested Houston's for dinner while in LA for business. Having never been to CA, I was up for anything. We started with the Guacamole, which was super fresh and off the hook delicious! I had the house salad with a house vinaigrette and then the Coconut Shrimp Roll with a soy/ginger sauce - again, delicious! Topped off with... More

There are too many people at this place. Be ready to wait 1 hour for average food. There are many many many better and less expensive places to eat in this area. KFC/Taco Bell does a better job.

We ate at Houston's our first night in town. The service is amazing. I've never experienced the way the servers help each other out. We had several different servers attend to our table and service was TOP NOTCH!!! The food was so good! We had burgers and the ribs... Maybe next time I will try a steak that I've heard... More
