The ribeye steaks are excellent and the stuffed ribeye is amazing! They have a Karaoke stage also so bring your singing voice.

Technically a bar, has the best soup and sandwiches. Roswell is home of the Kentucky Derby winner Mine That Bird. Movie about it soon called 50-1.

It seems to be a recurring theme in roswell that the worse a place looks from the outside - the better the food will be on the inside! This place is just a small town bar but the food is awesome! I had the chicken soft tacos and my son had the chile rellenos. The mexican rice was some of... More

I enjoyed this place when I visited. This review is quite late as I was there three years ago, but I felt like I should write a review for this place. We had their Green Chili Stuffed Ribeye. It was amazing. I loved the flavor and it totally hit the spot. The chef came out and delivered it to us... More

The bartenders are bitter with their position in life and resent all customers. They can not make a basic drink short of opening a beer bottle. I have been thrown out of the place twice for ordering a beer. WTF!? Stay away from this place at all cost unless you are one of the inbred locals! Poor service, bad attitude... More

After reading the excellent reviews on TA, I seeked this place out while visiting Roswell. We went for lunch and the menu was very limited to just hamburgers and sandwiches. There were only a few locals drinking at the bar and it felt weird eating with the family here. The sandwhich I had was a typical turkey and cheese and... More

I read the rave reviews here. And in my humble opinion. The hype was just that. I ordered tacos and enchiladas. I wanted beef and chicken so I paid the two bucks extra for the chicken. Should have just gone with the chicken. The beef taco and enchilada were both made with ground beef! I don't even use ground beef... More

The green chile stuffed ribeye has a real smokey flavor with a wonderful southwest kick! This was one of the most expensive priced items on the menu. However, considering the size of the cut and the quality of meat it was reasonably priced. You wont be sorry, your tastebuds will be dancing for days! Other menu items such as nachos... More

I was in town for a few weeks and this place was recommended for dinner. So I went to check it out. I met chef Todd and asked him and the waitress what they recommend I had. They both told me to try the chile stuffed ribeye. It was absolutely delicious and comes with a message from the chef. If... More
