Best food on Alvarado! The desserts are awesome, the service is good, and the food to die for! Their eggs Benedict is hands down best in county. Lunch menu is good selection has all your fav's, and dinner try the Sicilian steak!

Love the lasagna! Big enough for 2 people to share and that way you can get a piece of cake for dessert. It gets really busy so we try and eat early around 5:30pm so we always get a table quickly.

There is usually a small 10 to 15 minute wait, but this is good food with kind of a local flare to it.

The service is excellent but I think the food is overrated. However, the desserts are excellent. The restaurant staff is very welcoming and willing to please.

The food was great and service was too. Our waiter was attentive and willing to make some changes to our order. The steak salads were great and definitely enough to take some home for lunch the next day. Save room for dessert! The chocolate chip...More

Visited with my family during a visit to Monterrey based on excellent reviews. We were all very unimpressed with the food which was edible but nothing special at all. Decor also very worn and tired looking. We all have healthy appetites but the quantities served...More
