I went there with a collegue. He recommended me to have the ribbs. I must say that Houston's is one of the best places were I tasted Ribbs. Really good and also the quantity was not bad at all. Then we had an ice cream, good and abundant. Next time in New Jersey I will come back for sure. I... More

I have been here for lunch often. Prices are higher than the average place. Even though this is part of a chain, it does not feel like it.

Food is very good. If in the mood for a burger or a steak you won't be disappointed. Nice atmosphere. Try the ribs and/or Hawaiian Ribeye Steak!

We've been there numerous times in the last 6 months, and every time is more memorable than the last. The entree list is simple and every item on it is awesome. I have nothing bad to say about this restaurant except maybe the prices are a little steep otherwise my favorite by a long margin.

Everything seemed just right and in its place. The food quality is exceptional. One of the dishes I had was a veggie burger, which I should say, is perhaps the best I indulged in, in... More

We were a party of six for lunch today at the Houston's Restaurant. The place was busy at lunch time in a weekday, which shows the place is quite popular. A little bit too noisy.The siting at the horseshoe table that was booked for us was quite uncomfortable. I hate this shape which seems to be designed to save space... More

The service and food are impeccable. My steak and potato were perfectly cooked. My wife and I have not been there for over a year but still the food is excellent. You do have to dress properly to attend but it is a very nice restaurant.

Thank Kevin W
