In a city known for good food, this New Orleans area restaurant falls way short. Not for their food, which is pretty good, but for their prices. $14 for a burger and $30 for a steak is just not priced right for the market. Seriously, I'd rather got to Bud's Broiler 3 times instead of only once at Houston's. The ambience is only slightly above an Applebees or Chillis - they have no TVs. I didn't see anything special about this place that would justify their prices. Sure, the burger I had was good, but it was not at all dressed the way it described in the menu. The only reason I had the burger was not because it was the cheapest thing on the menu, but the ONLY thing that even looked inviting. The menu was short on food and long on wine. If wine is what you want, come here. I wasn't looking for wine. I won't be dining here again. Service was ordinary.
