“Good food, good prices, good atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

My wife and I went here for dinner on the recommendation from the Quality Inn in New Braunfels. The atmosphere is very good. Parking was a challenge as it was a Saturday night but we found a spot not too far from here. The wait was a modest 45 minutes but the time passed quickly. We were seated outside near the river with a great view. Our waiter was good, but let out water glasses go dry a time or two but took out photo with a wonderful sunset behind us and made up for it. Our appetizer was the spinach and artichoke dip. It was very good. We had the special ribeye with jalapeño glazed shrimp as our main course. This was more than enough for my wife and I to share. My wife had a glass of wine and she was pleased with it. The price was very reasonable. We would definitely return.

“Other places will be Gruene with envy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

Great atmosphere.

The crawfish chowder was excellent!

The chicken enchiladas were good, but nothing you haven't seen a lada elsewhere. I'm a fan of gallo pinto, so the black bean & rice side was a welcome departure from the usual refried paste.
