Several friends talked me into giving this place a try, so we ventured 45 mins out of our way to have dinner here. Up front, I'll say I'm from Austin, and their slogan immediately turned me off. Blazoned across their website, menu and multiple colored fliers stapled to their fence, doorway, etc is "Making Coldspring weird like Austin." Putting plastic pink flamingos in your flower beds and nailing out of state license plates to your fence isn't weird, its kitschy (and not as unique as it may have once been.) The food was unexpectedly good, but way overpriced. Their 'vegan spaghetti' was pasta, canned kalamata olive, canned artichoke hearts and other canned and vinegared salty garnishes. And it's smothered in BOOGS (their signature ingredient, look it up if you'd like). And it was $10/plate. For those who are vegan or know what it is, you'll be surprised to find out they also recommend feta cheese added to their vegan pasta! Good effort, but do your research before you label something like that. They did have a variety of vegetarian options, but I'd be cautious if you're vegan.
Their cocktails are far overpriced- $12-$15 for an average sized mixed drink, though the beer is typical bar prices, $3-$5/ bottle or glass. The crowd was loud and rowdy, with the music blaring far too loudly. The manager stepped down to the dining area towards the end of our meal to ask if the music was too loud- she had to repeat herself twice for us to hear her.
Last opinion- they need to expand their menu more, and better educated their waitstaff on courtesy when customers question the menu. Its all pizza, salad and pasta, with one dessert- death by chocolate with flat chocolate cake, drizzled in Hershey's syrup and topped with chocolate chips.Our waitress was quite short when we asked about desserts, though we were obviously not regulars.
