“Home Cooking with Oomph”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

The food was very good and in large portions. We had the Nachitos and the Fish Tacos. Both were tasty and well prepared. They had some home cooking items with a twist on them. I looked at the chicken fried chicken and gravy with green chilies but sounded a little heavy for the time we were eating. The service was good. Definitely a unique eating experience.

“Bring a Very Big Appetite!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

First tip - if you don't have a reservation, even on a Sunday - get there before 5:30. By 6:30 there is a long wait for a table. We have not eaten here is quite a while and I was really wanting some good food tonight - wound up taking most of it home! We ordered the Chicken Nachos and was shocked at how large the order was - it was enough for 2 people to eat dinner. It was deliciously fresh and tasty with just the right amount of heat. I then had the crab stuffed snapper with a rather large helping of mashed potatoes - after all the nachos, we boxed most of it up to bring home. My husband had the 5 cheese macaroni with grilled chicken and he too brought it home. Of course we could not leave w/o having dessert so we shared the peach cobbler with Amy's Mexican Vanilla Ice Cream (it was National Ice Cream Day after all.) It also is enough for 2 so order accordingly. The special Margarita and my Dirty Martini were also excellently done. Go hungry - but plan on bringing some home!

“Great modern southern cuisine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Be sure to get a reservation if you can, as the place fills up quick. Can't go wrong with any of the menu items, but the chorizo stuffed pork medallions were lovely! Great happy hour specials, too!

“New Gem in Round Rock”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

What a lovely experience! The guacamole is the best I've ever had! Good variety on the menu. Attentive wait staff - shared stories about the owner, clearly she loves her work! Great happy hour! Saw several items that I want to try on my next visit.
