The location is good, easy to to find, it is big enough to give you a table without having reservation. I would say this a "fine fast food" were you can eat and have a drink comfortable seated. Food is good as it is service but pricing is above the qualty, so if want to be sure check the menu... More

We've been going to Houston's for over 25 years. It always seemed like a friendly, good food and good value restaurant. I haven't been in one in over 2 years,but it didn't seem the same. The prices are up and the quantity is down. Not the same feeling. I wanted to visit, but I think that's the last time. Food... More

I was visiting LA and couldn't believe they had a Houston's! A Chicago favorite restaurant that has now closed. Food was excellent. I had the ribs, and they were juicy and tender. Spinach dip was really good. Served with warm Tortilla Chips, sour cream, and salsa. Other family members had the prime rib sandwich, as well as the Filet Mignon.... More

Dear Nicoley191, Thank you so much for your nice review and for visiting us during your trip to Los Angeles. While true that Houston's closed many years ago in Chicago, we hope you have had a chance to visit us at our sister restaurant, Bandera, on Michigan Avenue...they also serve the Spinach Artichoke Dip! There is no higher compliment than... More

I love Houston's restaurants - they are my favorite. I visit the Santa Monica and Pasadena locations frequently, and have visited out-of-town locations like New Orleans while on vacation. That said, I understand that there can be a wait during peak hours but I hated the reception I got at this location. We arrived at 6pm and were told to... More

We always visit this Houston's when we are in the South Bay every year. It was perfect this week as usual. Kale salad, rotisserie chicken with a delicious couscous and a wonderful Petrale sole. I was just a tad disappointed that the sole was encrusted, I expected it to be very simple in butter and lemon -- but I had... More

I went here with friends last night (1/7/17) to celebrate our birthdays. The grilled trout was really good and the service was great. The only downside was that they charged us $12 for a cup of ice cream with some chocolate syrup and a candle in it. It was our birthdays for Pete's sake, what happened to a complementary small...

A surperising knock out. We arrived from. a long flight from UK. The place had a small queue but were able to take a seat in a booth across from the bar - recommended.
