Huevos rancheros and pecan waffle in the shape of Texas is really really good! Service was good - sat outside in the lobby seats. Great people watching on a Friday morning- felt like Vegas. Lol

I was very disappointed by my lunch here. The black bean soup was boring. The tomato and avocado salad - wilted, small & flavorless. Stop in to see the lobby of the beautiful Driskill Hotel, but I would not recommend this restaurant.
