this place has a great bar in either location...downtown or stonelake. the signature big a** burger is delicious but venture out and try other things! the cedar planked salmon...amazing. the guacamole is to die for. and the chicken flat bread is tasty! my favorite though is the "pick 2" roasted chicken with this dressing that is simply awesome! i don't crave many dishes but i do crave that!!

The Roaring Fork on Congress is a great spot for a business lunch. The service is fast and the staff is always very friendly. There are some wonderful specials and the combinations are great. Try the green chili stew appetizer, this is great for a meal but can surely be shared with the table. I love the Iceberg BLT Wedge salad. The salad is very fresh and always tasty. The guacamole and chips are also a great choice. If you save room, try the cherry pie! Outstanding!

Roaring Fork has excellent food and flawless service. Good ambiance as well. It is the best spot for a business lunch near the Capitol. I definitely recommend calling ahead for reservations.

We wanted a nice place to eat on my last night in the area, so drove into the downtown area and found this place. There was supposedly a half hour wait for a table, but we seated ourselves right in front of the roaring fireplace to wait -- a wonderful place to be on a chilly night -- and within a few minutes our table was ready. It was quite close to other diners, but the noise level was not unreasonable, and it didn't interfere with our conversation.

We started with a kettle of green chile pork, which was the best I've ever had outside of New Mexico. Along with fresh hot flour tortillas, this could have been a meal in itself. Then the bacon-wrapped pork tenderloin with cheese grits and Mexican corn was unbelievable. The corn was perhaps the best "side" I've ever had, and again, I could have dined on that alone. I really can't describe it except to say that if you ever get a chance to try it, don't pass it up!

Throughout the meal the attention of our servers was excellent, and deserves recognition for outstanding attention.
