Good food, lots of fun decor. Having live entertainment was nice. Our service was slow, but good food. Would stop again! Everyone was getting the chicken fried steak must be a hot item!

A good place to eat, and see some nice entertainment! We enjoyed our supper---a specialized chicken dish and a custom made hamburger. Good friendly service, and saw some great singing entertainment in the music capital of Texas.

Stopped for lunch and the place has the old dive feel. Menu was decent and prices were good for lunch. Food was good and service was fine. All in all, good value with a nice Austin touch - no hipsters in this spot!
