Business lunch here. Quick seating and attentive wait staff. Ribeye sandwich was delicious. Nacho plate was ENORMOUS.

I've been coming here for the past 15 years and the food and service has always been consistent and good! The wife and I particularly enjoy eating on the patio in the evening. The menu has a good selection of dishes and moderate prices.

I was expecting a Tex-Mex restaurant when I drove up. The menu is more eclectic, say "Texas-themed". It really reflected many of the culinary types of favorites in Texas. They have pizza, pasta, Tex-Mex dishes, steaks, burgers, and sandwiches. The atmosphere was lively with a live band on the porch and strolling musicians within the restaurant. I had the Desert Fire Pasta, which was recommended by the waiter. It was good. I liked the spicy kick, but the sauce wasn't as thick as I was anticipating. One of my friends had steak which looked amazing. Their drinks were also reported as being unique and tasty, although I didn't order anything myself. This is obviously a popular spot as there was a large birthday party going on in the porch area.
