When our kids are in town they always ask to go here. After trying a few different dishes, we always come back to the same thing - the ribs, with fries and coleslaw.

We had dinner with friends and it was great. They now take reservations so we got right in. Food was excellent as was the service. They still have the best ribs in town. Very reasonable wine list. We will go back soon.

I visit this Houston's location once every six months to see if there is improvement in bar service. It is always the same. The service at the bar is disappointing. The bartenders are not friendly and attentive. They tend to talk among themselves. The bartenders do not seem to care if they wait on customers. You always have to ask... More

Perhaps one of my favorite places to have eaten while in Houston. This family of restaurants are all over the place, but to have it in the namesake town, it was a special experience. the decor in this location was clean and fit to the area very well. the staff was friendly and efficient as ever. Ribs and bake potato... More

Always consistent and delicious! Everything on the menu is fantastic .... ! My favorites are the French dip sandwich and tres leches for dessert...if the grilled artichokes are available they're a must!

Food is always consistent. This place is very busy at night, almost always a little wait, but worth it.

Before moving to the burbs I frequented Houston's. I haven't been there in quite a while until last night. The food, the service, and the atmosphere were wonderful and hasn't changed a bit since my last visit. Our guests ordered the ribs and the French Dip. We ordered the grilled chicken salad and the French Dip. Every bite was delicious.... More

Stopped in with friends for dinner. We're told it was a 90 minute wait so we sat at the bar instead. Staff was friendly and attentive. Full service bar and extensive wine list. Beer selection small though. They make their own Bloody Mary mix, beware it's not traditional and my wife had to doctor it with Worcestershire and olive juice,... More

We stopped in for lunch on a weekday with a reservation and were seated right away. Service, from the valet, to the host and then from our waiter was very attentive and professional. We ordered a Seared Tuna Avocado Salad and a French Dip. I ordered the French Dip and it was delicious but I regretted ordering it for two... More
