Have dined at this original location for years and find that taste is not as fine for beef, service slower and noise levels almost intolerable! Why this quality restaurant would allow the T-shirted shorts wearing loudmouths to roam freely in this fine emporium of the fatted cow is beyond me, my wife and others we have spoken with recently! To permit the good ole' boys to dominate the environment to the point of inaudibility is a travesty! Service, although slower is still pleasant with smiles all around... Prices are within reason although upward creep on the wine list is evident. A great service is the van ride home if needed and not too far... A tip should be offered to sustain this courtesy as opposed to the outrageous cab fare that Dallas has authorized. This place has local character not so available in the large chains!
