We recently moved from California where we ate at the Houston's in Pasadena and loved it! The Scottsdale location does not disappoint. Whenever we're in the Phoenix area, Houston's is a must do. My husband's favorites are the babyback ribs and the french dip; mine are the Flying Chicken, Thai salad, and Hawaiian ribeye -- every single one of them scrumptious. The menu isn't huge but there's plenty of variety to satisfy anyone's taste. Hostesses, waitstaff, and servers are all polite and professional, table service efficient but never rushed. We try to plan our day so we're there late in the afternoon (before 5:00) to take advantage of their lower priced lunch menu.

It is located in a free standing building in the Hilton Village retail center with ample (but busy) parking off of Scottsdale Road & Lincoln. Usually there is a short wait for tables.

Reasonably priced, any meal choice will be better than good. A favorite that is tasty and really yummy is their "mouth watering" ribs (their speciality). If you are "into" pork chops , do not miss their version. A huge double pork chop, exceptionalyy well seasond and presented to perfection. Their chicken salad is another favorite...ask for extra peanut souce. Not on the menu, but available if asked , is their veggie paltter if that is your choice. Their burgers are a nice size and is another good choice...you won't go wrong with any selection.

Every time we go it's full and the bar is hopping. The baby back ribs literally fall off the bone they are so tender. The rest of the food is quite good also and the portions are generous.

Honestly, one of the best Filets we have had in a restaurant! The 'crust' on the meat and the flavor are simply perfection. Pricey, but a nice splurge. Wine selection is fun too! Staff are friendly, accommodating and timely. Only negative, if you are looking for a quiet, romantic spot, this is not is... it's noisy everywhere in the place, but that is a certainly a sign of a busy place... because the food is awesome!
