After a 30 minute wait, WITH A RESERVATION, we were sat down.Other patrons with a reservation that waited a long time was offered a free appetizer, not us! The restaurant is VERY dark. I could barely see the menu. The menu is extremely limited. There were NO seafood options anywhere on the menu. Ordered the hamburger, it came out burnt... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with dinner at Houston's, and we had a marvelous time! Since Houston's is on the Country Club Plaza, we chose a weeknight (Monday), in the early evening (5:30 pm), to avoid crowds. It was quiet and very laid-back in the restaurant, and the staff really had time to attend to all the diners... More

A friend texted me a few days ago and told me to meet her at Houston's on the Country Club Plaza. It was lunch and my friend had ordered ribs, beans, and coleslaw. I wasn't that hungry and decided to have the Caesar Salad. The lettuce was chopped and the dressing was mixed into the salad. Although the portion was... More

It is all I ever have here! Loaded with prime rib! Bloody Mary's are not great.....taste a bit like cocktail sauce! Make them spicy and ask for ice!

There used to be a Houston's in Chicago that I would frequent. It no longer is there, so needless to say, I had to try the Houston's in KC when I heard it was there. I ate at several places in the few day business trip but this steak was the best! I ordered the filet and shared a KC... More

Dear Lane, Thank you so much for your nice review, and we are glad to hear you enjoyed the filet and strip steak. While we did close Houston's in Chicago several years ago, our sister restaurant, Bandera at 535 North Michigan Avenue, features the same NY Strip nightly and has our USDA Prime Filet on their menu as well. We... More

To start off the service was great! Everyone was nice and we had some great drinks. The food was really good! My husband had the prime rib and I had the filet. Both we're cooked perfectly! We would both recommend this place and we will be back!

Had a dinner here with a group of colleagues and we had a great evening. We all tried the tasting wines which was good fun! The food was very good and the service was attentive but relaxed. Would recommend.

Located in the plaza area of Kansas City, this is a great restaurant to have a good meal at a reasonable price while in town. Signature appetizer artichoke dip appetizer was excellent as were the selection of salads and entrées. You expect great service as well. I had the Tuna entree (seered tuna, mixed greens, avocado, mango ...) which was... More

Houstons was a very nice restaurant pick with great food and a really nice atmosphere in the heart of a great shopping district. The three of us all had the prime rib which all raved about. The sides were also well done and the serving sizes were generous. We would definitely eat here on our next trip to Kansas City.... More

Always eat at the Poplar location in Memphis and it's consistently delicious. Never a bad rack of ribs. So we tried the Plaza location in Kansas City last week. While good, it was not up to the quality of the Memphis location. The ribs were a bit overdone and dry. My steak while good was not $42 good. Still good... More
