Tex-mex bbq

Great early bird specials both on food and drinks. Located right in the town of East Quogue. Family run and oh, the desserts are home made!

For authentic, moist and meaty beef brisket, look no further. For the best tex-mex outside Divine, TX, set yourself down with Ole Tex at the New Moon. Top notch Texas BBQ, pork, burgers, and chimichangas. Good choice of local beers and a bar menu that hits the spot.

Just passing through - decided to stop for lunch. Nice place - takes you back in time a dash. Would fit right in anywhere in California or Texas. We totally enjoyed.

I meet my friends here once & a while....pub food is what I call it. Taco Tuesday is a fabulous deal...maragritas $5. & tacos run $2- $5.

This was actually the first restaurant my family went to when we moved here 20 years ago. I've been coming here with friends and family since I was a little kid and it's always been our go-to comfort food (being that I am a Mac and cheese critic, I must say theirs is quite tasty).

My husband and I went for dinner on a Friday evening. We both had the flounder filet special. I had my fish blackened and my husband had his broiled. It was very tasty. It came with a mixed vegetable medley and a choice of potato. I thought for $25. that a salad should have been included as well. It was... More

Very glad you enjoyed your first visit last month! If you're looking to tighten the bill a bit, we do have our prix fixe Tex-Mex special every night -- $25 includes two entrees and an appetizer.

I went here with my family for dinner many times. Every time I go. I get a cheeseburger. It is good but the waiters are mean. I would go back but it wouldn't be my first choice to eat.
