“When You Know You are Entitled to a Really Good Meal”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

Houston's may be part of a several restaurant chain, which ususally says I am going to get an above average meal at best, but that is not the case at Houston's. I have eaten at the one on Long Island and the one in Dallas on Preston Road, they each had their different favorite and when they recommended it, I knew I would be the winner.

I love artichokes and the grilled ones on the appetizer list are a hit each time they have them. Too bad artichokes can't be a regularly provided item, but they only grow at certain times. That just makes them more special when they are available.

Service at Houston's get's an A from me. So, I am just tellng you if you have to wait, it is worth it. But, I have never had an unreasonable wait.

Service and food were quite good. This was a nice place to meet up with the in-laws and start the night.

“Classy but not snobby”
Reviewed December 31, 2013 via mobile

It was busy for a Monday night, but we didn't wait more than 20 minutes for a table for 2. It was a very enjoyable experience overall. Hubby got the special and I got the salmon, both were cooked perfectly. Our sides were not as satisfying but not bad.

“Very good”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

Houston's is a great place if you're looking for a nicer place to take clients for lunch. Make sure to be early though because there can be a wait.
The baked potatoes are awesome! And of course all of the steaks are always perfect. A lighter option for lunch are the salads, a personal favorite is the Thai Steak & Noodle Salad.

“One of my favorites”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

Used to patronize the wonderful restaurant regularly when we lived in Dallas and was really pleased to be able to visit twice while in Dallas recently. Very good food at a bit less money than Three Forks or Ruth's Chris steakhouses. Located in central area of North Dallas on Beltline Road close to two major malls and the 635 freeway....lots of reasons to visit here. Wonderful soups, terrific salads, especially the chicken dinner salad which is a great late meal substitute. Had Ribs the second night and must say their ribs are as good or better than any of the famous Rib restaurants.
One of the best bars in any restaurant chain because they make drinks containing fruit juices with fresh squeezed fruit. Try a Madras or a Sea Breeze...you won't have a better one anywhere.

This place is always crowded so get there early.
