Ate at the bar. Nice wine and beer selection. Food menu a little limited, but very good. I enjoyed the French Dip sandwich, but lots of good choices.

Sure, there are fancier places in south Orange County, but for my go-to place, Houston's is tough to beat. It's a little more wallet friendly but without sacrificing the quality and portion size. I've never had a bad meal and have always left satisfied. The...More
