I've not been to Houston, but I've been browsing restaurant reviews a lot lately and did a few queries for Houston. Pappas Brothers seems good in general. Vic & Anthony's sounds like it has good food but occasionally bad service. Fogo De Chao sounds good overall for 'Brazilian-themed' steak (though two Brazilian friends say 'Brazilian steakhouses' in general are about as authentically Brazilian as General Tso's chicken is Chinese).
See what Amex has to say - I suspect some Centurion card-members know good steak!
As a general PSA about steak, one thing I learned during NYC's Restaurant Week is:
Don't go to a steakhouse thinking you can get a little portion of the great food on a small budget. They only offer less-desirable cuts in small portions on the NYC-RW menu. Really good steak, even in tiny portions, just doesn't go on sale. You can forget about aged porterhouse.
I've heard good things about the steak burger at Peter Luger's, though, and need to try that soon. The trip out to Brooklyn, even in the snow, probably would have been worth it considering the disappointments I got steak-wise when trying to eat out cheaply in Manhattan.
