    Ahi Tuna Burger was great! Even better with a side of spicy mayo! They don't let you get the dressing on the side for salads though. The chef said it loses the integrity of the dish.

    Also, I have it on good authority that the name change from "Houston's" was to avoid a regulation that requires chains of a certain size to print nutrition information on menus. Eat with care!!
