“Amazing Steaks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

I was in town for business and decided to try the best rated place in Abilene and boy did it deliver. I had the ribeye and a coworker had the filet and both were cooked to perfection. The steaks had the perfect grill to them with just that little bit of char, just perfect! If I had a critique about the restaurant is that they don't let you substitute vegetables for the starch, you have to order them extra which cost more. Otherwise it was a great restaurant!

“The Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Great food and good prices. The Ribeye and Long Island Iced Tea are the best I've had in a very long time. It is a very busy place so get there early as they do not take reservations.

“Stick to the Steaks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Nice place, good atmosphere. Service was very good and the waiter did a great job. I ordered the prime rib. Big mistake. Overcooked and tough as a boot. The two others in our party ordered steaks and were very happy. If not for their steaks, I would have rated the experience on the poor side. The fried veggies were good but a little on the greasy side.

“We'll be back - Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

What a great experience. We were there on a Friday night. The wait was for about 20 minutes. We went into the bar and had a drink while waiting. Plenty of tables and seats in the bar for waiting. We were a party of three. Two of us had the filet mignon with baked potato and salad. The third person in our party had the crispy fried shrimp. We also had the Combo appetizer plate that included fried mushrooms, fried cauliflower, fried zucchini, fried onion rings - not very healty but good. Our steaks were wonderful as was the shrimp. Service was very fast, friendly and non instrusive. We will be back!
