I like this restaurant. The steaks are good. The food is prepared very well. Not a lot of choices but what is on the menu is excellent. The staff were very friendly and responsive. The interior is not the best but it's clean and welcoming. I like the outdoor eating area. I rate this as one of my favorite restaurants in Tucson because it is off the beaten track and is not crowded and noisy. You can get a very good meal and sit and visit with friends. It's definitely NOT a greasy spoon as one reviewer rated it.

My husband and I wanted to try this place for lunch. As we were driving there we called to get the approximate location and was told by the Chef who answered the phone it did not serve lunch and opened after 4:00pm, but to come anyway & he would fix us something. He greeted us at the door and made us feel welcomed. Told us there wasn't much choice since it was closed but said the pulled pork sandwich was available and delicious. He also poured us some ice cold beer. The sandwich was delicious! I am not a big pulled pork fan but his was excellent and I couldn't stop eating the homemade potato chips. We definitely will come back again to try their other stuff. Can't wait to try the trout! Thank you Chef Peter for a remarkable "lunch". :)

THE BUTT PART OF THE ICEBURG..you only had 2 tables in the restaurant..the fries were perfect..oh wait the waitress was so engaged with a patron at the bar oops no condiments...restaurant 101 ..condiments go on the table after the order but before the food..yes I ate most of the fries before my condomints ever came..the burger is served dry.okay so maybe tehe waitress wanted to let us be romantic so my second galss of ice tea(101 degrees today) comes with no ice..yes no ice..warm tea ..okay there is more..the apple cobbler ...awesome..yet the iced over french vanilla ice cream should have been scraped off to reveal a fresher ice cream...remember there are only two tables now..so i politely explain these to the waitress but who cares...what a great place...a shame it probably wont be there in 6 months...signed..dissapointed regular

Local greasy spoon with poor food and shabby decor. Not a place I would recommend or return too. The prices were cheap but you get what you pay for.

In my first review from Sep 2011 I praised the steaks. Unfortunately, I must correct this. It was still OK and, given the moderate prices, the steaks were still good but not as outstanding as last year. My burger was a bit too raw and my wife's steak was a bit too well done. Perhaps they exchanged the cook. Service was good, stuff was friendly.
It is still a great place to have a casual dinner, especially if you want to dine outside.
