Had the blackened tilapia with slaw, rice,and brochilli. Fast service, food hot, and couldn't believe $5.98 plus tax! I can't even buy just the fish in the market raw for under $7.99. No wonder my frugal friend said this is a fantastic place to stop for food. I'll stop again.

The parking lot was full when we arrived and parked next door. Upon entering however, the place was very sparcly populated. We looked at each other and like, where is everyone? Very friendly wait staff greeted us and seated us. Service was just medium, not great.. When we were served, I asked for more tarter sauce for my (frozen catfish... More

No, this is not "fine dining". It is a home-town favorite, with comfort food and several house favorites. Whether their legendary chicken fried steak, the "Cry Baby Burger", or some of their great dinner salads (I prefer the Santa Fe Chicken Salad), you'll not leave disappointed, if this genre is your goal. Don't forget to ask for the homemade rolls.

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Austin. I had the chicken fried steak and my friend had the chicken spaghetti. Both were very good! The cornbread was delicious. Great prices for a lot of food.

What a great place to meet, enjoy drinks, food, and company. The beer is cold and served in generous sizes. The Chicken Fried Steak is pounded thin, lightly bread, cooked to perfection and served with great mash potatoes/gravy, and wonderfully prepared green beans...it does not get much better than this anywhere in Texas. The service is friendly, professional, and prompt!!

Thank Richard S
