I have been a long time fan of this x restaurant but recent changes have changed my mind. To start they no longer take reservations, thinking it ok to keep people waiting for hours. Maybe easier them but certainly lacks concern for their customers. Second,...More

Took a business associate here as I have bragged about their French dip in the past. It was better than good and he was truly impressed. Unfortunately the drinks and service weren't up to Houstons standards. Were they bad, no. Just below their standards.

Just had my birthday recently and we usually go to one of the premium steak places in Pasadena. I felt like a Hawaiian ribeye so we headed to Houstons. We got there around five and there was just a short wait. I had the ribeye...More

One of the best burgers in town. Fresh ground beef with enough fat to keep it tasty. They'll serve it RARE if you like it that way, and the bun is just right. The fries are thin,crisp and delicious. The coleslaw ( should you feel...More

We don't have Houstons in our city so we like to visit when we travel. It's always great. The Thai noodle salad was fabulous. Great blend of flavors and my hubby loves their French dip. Always know we'll get a good meal.

This year and last year stayed in Pasadena very close to this restaurant so jus had to go and try. Beef was good, pork ribs - absolutely fantastic. Service was adequate, can't say anything bad about but nothing "super-superior", although, I repeat, absolutely adequate.

What I'd call a typical business lunch restaurant except too noisy to have a conversation. Food is what you'd expect. $18+ sandwiches. Convenient and ample self parking on the lot.

We have been fans of Houston's for 30+ years. Spectacular food, service and ambience, and consistent at every location. Their ribs are the best I have ever had, bar none, including the many barbecue restaurants I have sampled from Texas to Tennessee. We recently stopped...More
