Good decor and atmosphere and the service was top-notch. A varied menu, lots of choices, and well-prepared. Portions were too large for us to even consider dessert--although they looked fantastic.

We love this place. Went out for a family dinner because we were craving brick oven pizzas. Our favorite dishes are the hamburger pizza, goat cheese pizza and our 7 year old enjoys pepperoni. They went great with our Micheladas, too. Service was exceptional tonight thanks to Alice.

This restaurant has everything a person can ask for, great food, great service, and your choice of dining in or outside. The patio is great and would be good for late night or a couples dinner.

If you're looking for a little bit of something different in the Valley, this is a great option. My recent visit was also my first but I will definitely go back to try some other stuff on the menu. I had the bone-in pork chop with a spicy gravy and it was extremely good. I think my wife had the... More

Great ambiance, good assortment of food (I had the avocado chicken), something for everyone. Good wine list. Their espresso was good with mango cheesecake, last but not least wonderful staff. Rarely do I give 100%, as they is always room for improvement, in this case they deserve it.

This is one our favorites in the RGV. Good mix of Mexican and American selections on the menu. Their wood fired pizza's are very good as well as all of the other menu items we have had.

Well, what can I tell you. We had an awful experience the last time we were there. Our special dinner was for our daughter's 19th birthday. Unfortunately, moments after our dinner was served, an uninvited guest came up from under the table and joined in my daughter's dinner plate. This uninvited guest proceeded to crawl over to my wife's plate... More
