Management is very unprofessional and staff has a tendency to be immature. Nothing wrong with smiling but at least be sincere. Overheard employees talking about other coworkers and it was very off putting. Food was sub par considering the price. I will not be back....More

Houston never disappoints with their exceptional service. My family and I can always count on excellent food while dining at Houston’s. Every visit begins with spinach artichoke dip and ends with key lime pie.

Houston's is one of the best restaurants in town and has been for years! We love the atmosphere, the food, the service, and the location. On date nights, we enjoy dinners at Houston's. Our favorite dish - Chicken Tenders Dinner!

Lol......i'm not sure since I'm local. A call to the restaurant should provide you some answers. Several restaurants in the area do ship FEDEX.
