Different & very good. If you want very good & familiar go to Hillstone around the corner. I'd encourage you to dive into the "home cooking" dishes. I had grilled beats, good but it was truly grilled beets no seasoning. Collards were fantastic and flavorful....More

We had a tasty dinner in at Rathburn's Blue Plate Kitchen. The atmosphere is very nice. Our waitress was a very nice lady from Germany who moved to Texas as a high school student. The food is typically Texan.
