I've lived in Southern California for years, neglecting this amazing place. I thought it was upscales Denny. Boy was I wrong! Every dish on the menu is a wonder. You can't go wrong and the employees are lovely.

Houston’s has excellent food with excellent service. Everything from seafood to steak, even sushi. Make a reservation though cause the secret had long been out about how great this place is.

This steakhouse is one of my favorites in LA county. The steak is one of the best I have seen. Cooked fresh and the 'medium' rating of the rarity of the meat is consistent and always flavorful. Their cocktails are very good and the service...More

As far as I know, they don't take reservations. I always go mid to late afternoon, even on Mondays. They are jammed but worth the wait. I'm in LA all the time and this is my favorite restaurant. Especially the burgers... More
