I always hold business meetings at Houston's. It's freeway accessible with adequate parking. A large, open dining room, attentive service, reliably good food. They use real cream in the coffee, so don't be put off by the clouds in your cup. The burgers are delicious.

Houston's is a fabulous restaurant. The service was attentive and friendly, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere was lovely. If you go during fresh artichoke season, the char-cooked artichokes are delicious. My husband and I have eaten at Houston's a couple of times and...More

As far as I know, they don't take reservations. I always go mid to late afternoon, even on Mondays. They are jammed but worth the wait. I'm in LA all the time and this is my favorite restaurant. Especially the burgers... More
