Riverside Square in Hackensack is a luxe shopping center with a variety of dining choices available to hungry shoppers. Although I have been to the shopping center on numerous occasions, I have found myself choosing Houston's as my favorite shopping center restaurant. Houston's unlike most of its competitors has an upscale atmosphere, friendly service and a diversified menu with lots of healthy food.
This past weekend was spent with family going to athletic events, dance recitals and eating. There were 5 children and 5 adults all tired and hungry when we arrived at Houston's. The front desk had our reservation and table ready when we arrived at 3PM. The grandkids and their cousins sat at one table of 5 and 5 adults sat at the other table. Our waitress was attentive, courteous, and friendly and within 10 minutes all of us had ordered our meals.
Since time was important we chose an assortment of veggie and beef cheese burgers and some of Houston's large and delicious salads. The salads were Salad with raw tuna slices, chicken salad, and Cobb Salads. The kids shared french fries, burgers, rice and salads. Our waitress made sure to setup glasses of water and our preferred drinks i.e. iced tea. Each of our entrees came with either baked potatoes, french fries, and Broccoli.
The music in the background was relaxing, the food delicious and the service was fine.
I have been to various Houston's on Long Island, and New Jersey and can honestly say that the Houston's at Riverside Square is one of the best. I had a chance to speak to Amanda Coward, the restaurants senior assistant.Amanda was lovely, charming, bubbly and a tremendous enthusiast about working for the restaurant. She felt that she was fortunate to work in an environment where her work and that of her associates was thoroughly appreciated. She made our meal more enjoyable and pleasant.
When in Hackensack, the Riverside mall offers great shopping and wonderful family dining at Houston's
Kudos to Houston's Riverside, Amanda and the chefs and staff at Riverside...
