There are a handful of places to get beer and wine, but not a lot of choices if you're seeking a cocktail either with or without food. What I also like about this restaurant is that they have an outdoor patio, which is very pleasant most of the year. I had the brisket of beef sandwich with fries and it was good enough that I actually did eat the half I took home as leftovers. The server was all by himself but did an admirable job of keeping up with us (the only group on the patio that day) and the several tables in the bar. You won't get gourmet food here but it's edible, and if you like chiles, the green chile chicken stew is always good. They do allow smoking on the patio but we were the only ones there so it wasn't an issue. It's usually not all that crowded on the patio and we like to dine a bit late to avoid the busiest times anyway. Four friends met for lunch.

I have been here 3 times and the third time we came to town just to eat here. The food is always really good and all of the staff are great. The food is always fresh and they have really thought out fun recipes. If You like dessert try the cheesecake it's great! Plus if you like margaritas this is the place to go! We'll worth the stop.

We were in town from Cloudcroft to move our boat. Decided to make it an early Valentine's. Jack and Amber are super friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The Ribeye was AMAZING!! Perfectly cooked and the sides were spectacular. You guys made our day and we will absolutely be back soon
