We had a great time at Houston's, I took one of my clients there and they have a very nice lunch. The service there was excellent.

Their burgers are good and they better be at $ 14 !! Now the ribs are good but you use to get 2 slabs at $28 but now you pay nearly $30 for 1 slab !!! Hit other rib places for a better value.

I have lived in 5 major cities across the country. 4 out 0f 5 had Houstons. And consistently the bet veggie burger I have ever tasted. I have converted meat eaters to this dish. IF you want to spice it up a little ask them for a side of honey mustard, trust me!!!

Everything about Houston's is great. But I think it would be even more terrific if the prices were a little lower. It's really pricey for a dinner out.

Houston's is a great "go to" place - it's consistently good, big food with great service, so you don't feel like you just got swindled by another pricey mid-town trap. And there's something for everyone. Went this week with my boyfriend, and his cousin from out of town...spinach dip is super yummy. For mains, one of them got steak (with pineapple glaze and huge baked potato - "this is awesome"), one got crab cakes ("these are the best I've had in a long time"), and I got the Vegetable Platter - which is actually varied, filling and super tasty. This time it was tomatos, steamed broccoli, sweet and russet potatos, cous cous and red cabbage with goat cheese and two huge buttery slices of grilled bread. Their veggie burger which I've had on other occasions is AWESOME as well, maybe best in NYC. Apple cobbler for dessert was waaaay sweet and too intense for me - the three of us couldn't even finish it! Also they had a live jazz band that night, so it was chill atmosphere. Sure its a chain but who cares? It's reliable and always better to surpass excpectations and be worth the value, than be disappointed at a trendy place.

Not that I'm a burger connoisseur, but I've had my share of decent beef - not to be interpreted any other way :) - and I think their burgers are phenomenal. They may be $14 a pop, but they're hefty portion, tender and juicy, served with a toasted egg bun. Absolutely delicious. I've had a few other items from the menu, as well - the chicken sandwich, the spinach & artichoke appetizer, among others - all were very good. The atmosphere is also nice - rustic and dimly lit definitely a good date restaurant.

I went on a Saturday night to the 53rd st. location, the place was empty and I was scared but I must say my food was good. I had the ribs based upon the review someone posted here. The ribs were abosolutely the best I've ever had. I had the loaded baked potato..everyone who passed our table was admiring it...it was very good but could have had a bit more sour cream...Come on I'm a foodie! lol. I was afraid when we're seated by the kitchen but it didn't bother us at all once we were seated. The atmosphere is quite versatile. It's a good place for a date and it's a great place for girl talk with your friends as well. I'll definately go back, I'm still thinking about those ribs!.
