Last night Jenn and I double dated with Eric and Liz in Santa Monica. I thought we were going to try something that Eric was going to Yelp. Instead we ended up at a good standby. That being Houston’s. It has been awhile since I had been there since they closed the Woodland Hills location and me being broke/ cheap. What Eric and I always get there is the French Dip Sandwich and the Spinach Artichoke Dip. The only real problem is that it is on the lunch menu and not the dinner menu (the sandwich that is). But lo and behold it was on the dinner menu. I have problems spending $18 on a sandwich, but you gotta do what you gotta do. Houston’s is not a cheap date place by any means so it was on the low/ middle price range in food there. After getting harassed due to the fact that I do not go beyond circle of foods and not very exploritory, I stayed with the sandwich.
What is so great about it? Actually the question is what is not great about it. Imagine an awesome bun that is buttered and grilled. Then add medium rare prime rib sliced thin, a little mayo on the bread. With some shoestring fries that is seasoned so right.
So worth it.
