Had the Taco Platter and the Carintas Dish. Both very good and we ordered Margaritas and asked if they knew how to do a cadillac one and had to tell them what to put in the margartia. Very friendly for a small town and good food.

Me and my family were driving across the state and saw this restaurant in TA and decided to give it a go. I would say that overall, it lived up to its good standing. The food was very good as was the service. A caution to big eaters: you will either need to fill up on carbs like potatoes or... More

Great steak house that also serves awesome seafood and Mexican food. Don't forget to order appetizers. Always a great way; to start your meal. They also have a great selection of desserts if you save room. The atmosphere is nice also.

Not much too look at and quite dark inside, but who cares about that? The important part, the food, yummy! Ordered rare prime rib and it came as ordered and was very good. Staff if great!

Went there while visiting the area. Order something inexpensive. Not worth $$ for the steaks. White wine was served warm and service was mediocre.

We stopped by for dinner after reading all the great reviews on the place, boy were we disappointed! Our waitress was very nice and sweet but the cook made our enchiladas wrong and when the waitress brought it to his attention she came back to our table and had to take our plates back because the cook didn't believe her!...

It seemed it was the only popular restaurant for proper dining in the small town. It was full in the main dining hall so we got a table in a separate room for ourselves. Service was good and food was also good, especially the Shrimp Scampi. The grilled chicken was a bit dry though. Simple setting and basic food with... More
