Mac and cheese

We have eaten here many times and its always good food. You can sit outside in the summer, which is a plus. The Mac and cheese is amazing!

My party of four went here on a Saturday evening to celebrate a birthday. We had to wait about 10 or 15 minutes before being seated. I scoped out the menu beforehand online and was a bit surprised by the prices on the plates but figured they had to be really delicious and elegant. There is not a whole lot... More

We went during the week between Xmas and New Years so they were not busy. We asked about Creole/Cajun dishes, but were told The Shrimp Voodoo appetizer as close as they had. It was very good, jumbo shrimp and great sauce. The 1/2 Buffalo Chicken Burrito was OK, good flavor but too many potatoes. It is huge, so the 1/2... More

Had the Thai chicken Barito and it was basically just stuffed with mixed greens and a few pieces of grilled chicken really sad for 12 bucks

On the basis of a trip advisor recommendation I had their Bloody Mary (thanks Exxie) which was accompanied by a lagniappe, a beer chaser. I had the tomato bisque soup and half of a Buffalo Wing burrito. A full-size burrito must be enormous. I had the place mostly to myself around noon on a Sunday morning during Christmas break in...

We heard good reviews of this restaurant and decided to try it. The service was average. Our waitress paid more attention to a few of her friends who had come into eat as well. She didn't refill our drinks until asked, the food arrived slowly, and the quality of taste or flavor was questionable considering the prices. We will not... More

If you are looking for a great steak this is the place to come. The Smokin Mary is the best Bloody Mary in town. Their Buffalo Chicken Burrito is amazing!!! Lots of fresh, creative dishes with an upscale vibe. Their patio is the place to be in the summer. They really have something for everyone. You cannot go wrong with... More

Although I feel this place is slightly overpriced, their menu selections are nice. I think the food is quite good, and they have a great cocktail selection. I particularly loved the gourmet Macaroni and Cheese. I was very impressed with the basil/tomato cone touch on the top, with various cheese flavours throughout the dish. I mostly like Atlas Grill for... More

Great location, downtown. When the weather is nice, it is good to sit outside and enjoy the weather --- as well as do a little people-watching. The food is very good. Most portions are big, particularly the burritos (not your momma's Mexican burrito). Typically, my wife and I will split a burrito and I will get a cup of soup.... More
