Still got the taste of delicous food – Whenever my boy friend comes from New York, the first place we go to is Houston's Resturant on Veterns. Its just great. I would say if you come to New Orleans next time DO NOT EVER FORGET TO GO TO HOUSTON'S RESTURANT AND THE BEST N BEST HAVE SPINACH DIP. I JUST LOVE IT SO MUCH...COULDNT FIND THAT DELICIOUS SPINICH DIP IN ANY OTHER RESTURANTS IN WHOLE LOUISIANA. I WOULD RECOMMEND EVERYBODY TO GO AND ENJOY AT THIS RESTURANT. YOU WILL NEVER WANT TO STEP OUT AND WILL NEVER FORGET THE TASTE OF DELICIOUS BLACKEND FISH AND SPINACH DIP.
I have never, ever left Houston's unhappy. The food is so fresh, and they prepare everything from scratch. Even their ketchup is prepared fresh daily. Home of one of the best burgers and spinach dip in town.
Upscale Food and Service – I have eaten at Houston's on Vets many times and find the place to be very upscale in food and service. As compared to many New Orlean's restuarants, Houston's is value added and is worth the experience. They have the very best salad dishes in town. The wait staff are some of the best you will find anywhere.
ALWAYS A GREAT CHOICE – Houstons will always be my choice to dine. The food & salads are always consistant. The prices seem to go up alot, but it's well worth it.
Another sign of the times – I've been in the N.O. Houston's. It's a chain. It is to New Orleans restaurants what Brittany Spears music is to Louisiana music. If you regard both Brittany and Houston's worth your money, I can get you a great deal on a velvet Elvis painting. You'd be better served to have Domino's deliver to your mobile home than to dine at Houston's.
Plain vanilla – If you are in New Orleans and eat at a chain restaurant, you should go move to Iowa or Arkansas.
Go to a local joint - you will not only experience the culture and attitude of New Orleans, but you'll eat better food at far better prices.
C'mon people. Houston's? There's so much better out there. Live a little. Life's too short to eat in a corporate chain.
Too self-important – While I like Houston's spinach dip and other menu items as much as the next person, it's a little hard to swallow the restaurant's uppity attitude. I certainly find nothing wrong with aspiring to greatness, not even for a chain, but sometimes I think the staff needs to be reminded that this is not fine dining. I'm not suggesting Houston's adopt a cheesy, uber-casual approach -- other chain restaurants have proven that is bad to the other extreme -- but how about personalizing the service a bit and lowering the prices. Ten bucks for a salad served by a dour waiter? There are too many good and genuinely upscale restaurants in the New Orleans to wait around for what you guys are serving.
