Houston's has been in Pasadena for a longtime, you can expect excellent food, great service and fine atmosphere. This place is so popular that you need to make reservations ahead of time, otherwise expect long wait time to be seated. They have a full bar and great selection wines. There is valet parking available.

Everything is really tasty, from the steaks to ribs to burgers. The vegetable sides are always a hit - they make anyone LOVE brussels sprouts, tomatoes, cauliflower. It's worth the price and wait if it's a special occasion. Delicious!!

You probably know that Houston's is a chain restaurant. This location is a good one. It has a nice selection of standard American fare, well prepared, courteously served. Not really the place for vegan/vegetarians. I always find Houston's a little dark inside. Probably great if you are on a date.

Coming to Houston's, I originally ordered the chicken salad. Decided on trying something new, I ordered the Thai Steak Noodle Salad! This salad contains, steak, mango, chili peppers, peanuts, noodles, cilantro, and a variety of other delicious ingredients! I experienced a variety of flavors exploding in my mouth! I could not explain it! The flavors were sweet, salty, and meaty... More

Houston's does so many things right! Amazing barbecue ribs, Oak grilled trout, Their house salad with the butter milk garlic dressing, their french fries, their coal slaw. I could go on and on. If I have one small complaint, they sometimes do things that make no sense. We love blue cheese crumbles on Our salad. In the past we could... More

Houston's offers delicious cuisine in a classy, yet comfortable setting. The salmon, and Hawaiian rib-eye steak were absolutely delightful, and our server provided first-rate service. Would have given this restaurant five stars if not for the wait. With the lunch menu comparable to the dinner menu, either choice is a winner! Overall, Highly Recommended!

The setting is open and pleasant. Services are always wonderful. The artichoke is my favorite dish and one should really try it.

Beyond a beautiful restaurant, the staff is well trained, fast to serve, quick to please and fresh fare beyond compare. You can't go wrong with Houston's for biz, for family and certainly not for date night. It's simply hard to beat the quality and seems like a safe "go-to" for almost any occasion.

Wow we have been going to Houston's since it opened and were sad to have the worst dining experience ever. Started with a 2 hour wait....Really this restaurant needs to start taking reservations. Our waiter complained about how his feet were killing him and really just threw the food on our table. Food was really bad. Spinach dip appetizer was... More
