Who knew that a steak house would have such delicious vegan options? Check out the red beans and rice, delicious, and either one of of the carefully prepared vegetables, or vegetable friendly salad without sweet junk or cheese.

My wife and I were in Pasadena on a business trip and had dinner. The food was very good and the staff was great. They were busy but we were seated quickly. I would recommend you make a reservation.

So what can you say about Houston's that hasn't been said. The food, FABULOUS. The service, Spectacular. The decor, Delightful. I have been to Houston's many times over the course of 15 years. It is so consistent, I equate it to Mom's cooking. After long business trips this place makes me feel right at home. Houston;'s isn't known so much... More

This is by far one of our favorite restaurants in Pasadena. We've been going here for decades and go fairly regularly. Their steaks, salad and appetizers are simply the best! I usually have a Ribeye steak, but at times have had their French Dip and Hamburger at lunchtime. They also have Sushi, but I've never tried it. My wife says... More

Houston's does not always get the love it deserves in a town full of good restaurants, and restaurants that believe they are good. All I can say is that I always get a great meal at this place, and the staff is friendly and professional. What else do we look for in a restaurant?

We typically prefer to dine at independently owned restaurants over chain restaurants, but we love Houston's. And others must feel the same, because the Houston's in Pasadena is always bustling. The sushi there is great, but my personal favorite is the Emerald Kale salad. The atmosphere is classic, fine dining steak house like, and the service has always been terrific.... More

Excellent service, always consistent high quality - I am addicted to the Hawaiian Rib Eye and the Baby Back Ribs We have been going to this place since it opened and think of it as "our place" - I could eat there 3-4 times a week and not be bored. There is absolutely nothing bad on the whole menu!!

Thank Mito R
