I really liked the atmosphere and decor the food was okay. And the service was on point, I got my food and I wasn't crazy about it. Also for dessert my family ordered apple pie with ice cream and when we got it it was slightly gray on the top!!!! Yuck! We told our waitress and she apologized but we... More

We were looking for something different, so we went here. Cool, rustic/homey environment. The pulled pork and corn bread were perfect! Most parking is on the street.

Never disappoints with Eclectic treats that are a party for the palette. Down-home goodness with a flair. Fabulous bbq, great smashed potatoes, & the sweet-potato pancakes are to die for. Fantastic sangria will keep you feeling good as the live music plays.

The menu is a little american southwest,cajun, and steakhouse. They succeed a little of all but not great. Their best dish is smashed potatoes. It's ok for Merrick but not worth a trip. The staff id friendly and they have entertainment sometimes.

Consistently good, down home cooking! Large portions, awesome food, great specials, atmosphere and staff. Feels like New Orleans in the heart of Merrick. It's pure comfort BBQ food, worth a visit.

Very interesting dining experience. Southwestern food with alcohol filled boots that will kick you in your butt. Great Merrick restaurant. I highly recommend reservations as the place is a bit small. Don't let the outside dissuade you. Worth the trip.

This is some of the best Tex-Mex i've ever had.. I will admit that i am not a huge tex-mex fan, but the food here was awesome and the entire staff was so friendly. I had the catfish with a red curry sauce that was oh so yummy. It was kind of sweet, unlike the yellow curry which i personally... More

If you like tex-mex, Cajun cooking and good music... This the place to be... This place has a fun atmosphere and a changing menu .... Don't forget to leave room for dessert... They are off the charts..👍👍
