This contemporary American eatery has long been the favorite spot to meet for drinks after work, as well as for consistently good food. Dim lighting combined with dark wood gives these restaurants an East Coast-style, club-like atmosphere. Casual American cuisine includes soups, salads and sandwiches at lunch, and steaks, chicken and seafood entrees at dinner. The bar offers a wide range of house specialty drinks.
I absolutely LOVE Houston's Pork Ribs. They are by far the best I have ever had. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. The meat literally falls off the bone and the bbq sauce is so delicious. I crave Houston's ribs at least once a month. Great service, great ambiance, great food!
Very nice bar and comforting layout. I have had ribs all over the country, but these were some of the best I have ever had. Wife had the prime rib which was reall good. Will go back again no question about it.
Mike777 scared me a little. I probably would have given 5 stars but I'm a little creeped out right now. Fortunately, I don't drink margaritas and if I ever start, it won't be here. It's one of our favorite places in town for a little dressing up. The black bean burgers are the best anywhere. Nice atmosphere.
The only thing I don't like is the jazz music in the background. I wish they would try another genre of music. I love their French dip and the fries. The ribs are quite nice too. I like the staff -- always busy and helpful. Large groups aren't ideal here and it's not for an intimate conversation. We try to go at lunch time to avoid a long wait.
I was very disappointed in the restaurant's ability to seat large parties. We had nine people in our party and we had to sit at 2 separate tables (not even next to each other). We had to wait over an hour to be seated and over another hour for our food. It was very chaotic and noisy with the waitstaff rushing around bumping into each other and breaking dishes. When the food finally arrived, it was good but not great. I will not rush back anytime soon. Scottsdale has a lot of nice restaurants to try before coming back to this one again.
