What a great find in this sleepy little town. Well, we were there in late February and it was sleepy then... The menu was diverse and food was better than expected. The place was friendly and cozy and we'll definitely be going back~

The menu is interesting. Parking seemed to be on the street out front, but wasn't tough to get. I asked for a substitution on my TX1000 meal. I wanted a chicken breast instead of a burger patty, and they happily switched it out for me....More

Chicken wings, fries, sweet potato fries, and several salads to choose from. They would probably wrap a sandwich or burger in lettuce if you asked!
We are going to visit in a couple weeks. Does the Prodigal Son have beer flights?
