To be a chain, Houston's in Memphis is unique. The service is very good, great Prime rib and amazing appetizers. Always a safe bet for out of town guest.

Went last night with my sister-in-law. She had the Hawaiian ribeye and I had the special which was a Campfire Ribeye. They were both cooked perfectly. The baked potato was hot and loaded! The spinach/artichoke dip appetizer was good too! Our server was quite absent...More
