“Good Food...Great Waiter!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2014

Passing through east Texas on an over nighter and hungry. This place came recommended. Good was good and hot and the decor fitting. What set this place apart was the waiter at my table. Very attentive. Water glasses were constantly full and he wanted to ensure our needs were met. Well worth the recommendation.

Good food and a friendly waitperson. Good selections and choices. Tortilla soup may be the best ever eaten.

“small portions with a large price tag and a long wait.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2014 via mobile

This used to be a good restaurant several years ago. Now they offer smaller portions that continue to shrink and higher prices. The wait times are long so you may end up with a warm plate while others are served cold food. I expect more from a restaurant that charges more than any other establishment in town. We stayed away for months and tried it once more only to realize why we stayed away in the first place. We are now completely done with this place.
