I came to Houston's with a colleague and I was pleasantly surprised with the salad choices they had at this place. You can easily get into and out of the bar seating in less than one hour, and most food items look great, but I...More

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.

Whether you want a great ribeye or salad or prime rib sandwich, you can count on consistent quality and service. This is great food for the price. The artichokes are yummy and the key lime pie is awesome too!

We were looking for a salad meal that is hearty enough for an early dinner. Great choices. Loved the spicy tuna roll salad and mom really enjoyed the Thai noodle salad with beef filet. Excellent service too!

I use to think that their ribs were great, but at close to $30 I can buy ribs at the super market that taste as good. Matter of fact, BJ's on Thursday has the best bargain for less than $19 for a full rack dinner...More

Houston's is my favorite restaurant in and around a Los Angeles. Coming here for 5 years. So what I love the best is the Houston's in Pasadena. Their broccoli grilled artichokes mashed potatoes grilled trout ribs are outstanding. Their Service also is impeccable!
