this was our first time to this location altho we have a lot of experience with manhattan beach & Pasadena their menu seems to have been getting smaller (more limited) and they seem to keep removing old favorites from the menu the venue is nice and the service was attentive but if they keep limiting the choices, we probably will stop coming to the chain at the prices they charge, everyone at the table should be able to find a few choices each instead we were disappointed

The French dip pulled pork sandwich is amazing. As a matter of fact every dish is perfectly cooked, and the staff showed amazing care and customer service. Love Houston's

Had diner here with some friends. I ordered a cheese burger and a salad. The blue cheese dressing was the best I ever tasted! The burger was cooked just right, but the bun was a little hard and the meat needed seasoning - that's why I didn't give this place a 5.

I tried Houston's again this time in Irvine. I had eaten at the one in Scottsdale. The exact same thing. Service however in this one was worse. The server was about what she couldn't do for us versus what she could do. Disappointing again. Food was just OK, menu very limited, just did not enjoy the experience at all. I will not be eating at Houston's again at any location. Pass it up if you get the chance.

The food is great and comes in large portion. They have the best chicken noodles salad and their dings crispy chicken sandwich is my dream come true sandwich. Not to mention the staff were pleasant and very helpfull when you do not know what to order.
This is the resturant that you must visit at least once a month.
