Great soup, wife had a cup of chicken tortilla and I had the jalapeno crawdad soup and it was outstanding. We split a huge cheeseburger and it was as delicious as the soup! Would do again if ever close. Good service.

A Saturday evening dinner with friends, and enough food for a whole party of folks. Perfectly cooked pork chop for me, but everything on the table was wonderful. On a weekend, go a little early.
