Hosted a lunch business meeting at this location. It has a great selection of entrées and the service was professional! Make sure you get a table that is not under a speaker, it can get loud...

I love the dim lights, dark wood, open kitchen, great service, little bar, wine list and spacious seating. The wait can be long and the menu could be a little less BBQ-focused - I miss the smoked salmon appetizer plate and a couple other small plates they used to have long ago, and the menu used to offer more choice...

Houston's is definitely a 'go to' favorite. The menu is perfect for lunch or dinner with enough selections that there is always something everyone...including the vegetarian in our group. service complaint is how quickly they "move you through" for lunch. I understand it is a busy time but not everyone is in a lunch time crunch! Overall, the wait staff... More

As were staying in Pasadena for a few days, this was an obvious choice for lunch. The service was quick and the food good.

You seriously can't go wrong with Houstons. Casual dinner or special occasion, this is the place. Order the Thai noodle salad, ribs, simple Caesar salad. It's all good!

Came for dinner on Sunday with my wife. We where celebrating valentines since both of us work on tuesday. Everything was great. This place is our place for dinner and drinks. Steak cooked perfectly and the ribs are delicious. One thing I do want to mention is that we felt rushed by our waiter. He was on a mission to... More
