Brynn AndrewsI sincerely hope Hillstone finds another KC location for you to reopen in again soon! If consistency and excellent service define restaurant success--and I believe they do--Houston's Kansas City nailed both of those goals for over 30 years. Thank you so much for that! Your closing will leave a gaping hole in Kansas City. Please reopen somewhere great and sustainable in our city very soon. We'll miss you terribly.

Vikki SlavikI have too many wonderful memories of Houston's to list but over many, many years have celebrated: birthdays, anniversaries, weekly date nights, and celebrations of grandchildren's births. I ate the same salad every single time for 2 decades and I will miss it.

Come by for a final margarita with us. 😢 Houston’s in Kansas City will be closing its doors on January 31, 2017. Houston’s opened on the Plaza in 1987. Having seen many changes to the Plaza over the years, we have been proud to serve Kansas City with good food and hospitality.

Despite good faith efforts on both sides, an agreement to extend our tenancy at the Plaza could not be reached with the Lessor. Details surrounding infrastructure improvements that sought to temporarily close the restaurant proved to be insurmountable.

While a future location is not certain, Hillstone will be on the lookout for sites with unique characteristics that would suit a new restaurant. Our sincere thanks to our guests to whom we have had the privilege of serving for many years. #houstonsrestaurant #kansascity #farewell

Kelly Stahl GattshallMy husband I have been going to your restaurant for over 20 years. When the Overland Park location closed we were bummed. We once waited 5 hours to eat there! This news is shocking and I hope you all can reopen somewhere else. We definitely will be in to share one last hickory burger and five nut brownie! You should bring back the sunbelt salad and those delicious chicken fingers! (Told you 20 years... and lots of menu changes! ) 😒🤞
