The prices were a bit high, but it was all worth it. I went with three other people and all of our meals were some of the best pastas I've ever tasted. Especially the mac and cheese. Best mac and cheese ever made!

This place is definitely worth going to! It's very small and is usually crowded at typical dinner or lunch hours but it's worth it. There is an extensive menu including options for people who are gluten free, vegetarian etc. The dishes are very creative and are always delicious. I've been going there for years and it never disappoints. The whole... More

I always drive by this place and say, "we should try that place." But have never tried it until we decided to change things up and order out. All of the dishes look amazing and I decided on the Luv Diablo and my wife ordered the stairway to heaven. Both dishes were out of this world. The Luv Diablo was... More

My husband and I love this place. The vibe is fun and laid back and I love the chairs with guitar backs and the funky menu names for the dishes. But that is not enough to keep bringing us back. The food is really good! Great pasta that is full of flavor. I love the Joplin pasta with chicken. The... More

This is a funky restaurant based on a rock and roll theme. For example there is a steak salad called "Thai and the Family Stone". We also always order the "James Brownie" for dessert. The salad dressing is made with ginger and is out of this world. They even bottle it.

A value with huge portions - not gourmet but an enjoyable college place like I recall when I went to college

This restaurant has a musical theme. One salad is called "Thai and the family stone". An amazing dessert is called the "James Brownie". It is tiny and delicious.

Atmosphere is fun, staff are friendly, and dishes are delicious. They are accompanied by a side salad with a house made sun-dried tomato dressing that is very good and unique. Walls are covered by great photos of rock stars, ceiling is decorated with 45s and the chairs at the bar have used guitars for their backs. TV over bar has... More
