“Crowded, surly hostess”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2012

Will never eat here again. They were busy and the hostess literally told us they didn't want to be bothered putting tables together. Made us wait for no other reason than because they could. Food was mediocre, ambiance mediocre, staff poor. Yuck! Avoid!

“Very good happy hour deals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2011

Food is pretty consistant with other On the Borders. Good happy hour drink specials and a small selection of appetizers at half prices. I had the brisket tacos, good balance of tender brisket, an ok bbq sauce and fried onion strings. Great service from the bartender Christine, will be back next time I'm in town.
