Houston's consistently has excellent food and service. My husband and I always make a stop while in Memphis. It's obvious we aren't the only fans since Houston's is packed with customers each time we go.

Stopped by for lunch, and tried the grouper. I was surprised at how good it is. Lightly battered and fried. Comes with Cole slaw and a greens salad. My wife Loved her cheese burger. The shock is $7 for a Stella.

The fried grouper sandwich was the best fish sandwich I have ever had. Nicely breaded filet topped with slaw, onion, and pickle. Large enough to share, it was almost too much. Comes... More

Great Smoked Salmon apps! Good food, however, the absence of some classic Southern Sweet Tea was disappointing . They might also think about toasted bread with the Spinach dip. 😎

I absolutely enjoy myself every time I am here. The kale salad paired with the smoked salmon is great. The staff is always very friendly and helpful. I will be back in the future. Happy dining.
