Houston’s Restaurant

My folks are in town and, after touring the tall ships for NOLA Navy Week, we wanted sandwiches for lunch. After several days of po-boys, we decided to go a little upscale. We headed to Houston’s on St. Charles Avenue. They serve what they call ‘diverse American’ that includes lots of meat and plenty of grilled items.

Our goal was the French Dip sandwich made with sliced prime rib. The sandwich is decadently good–the meat cooked medium rare and oh, so tender. We also tried the chicken and friends sandwich, which was good with the cheese and coleslaw on it but it just couldn’t hold a candle to the prime rib.

The booths are quite comfortable and feel private enough for even business conversation. The staff was quick on refills and to check in to make sure everything was all right. While it can get a little loud, I would recommend this place for lunches that could get business expensed.
