Eclectic Texas oriented atmosphere and very enjoyable. The service was very friendly and accommodating. The service was a little slow, however, due to only 2 servers being there. The food was worth the wait and I will return and will recommend to others.

Wonderful burgers, fries, salads and desserts. Cheerful, very tidy restaurant. If you're there on a Wednesday, ask about the reason for the Officer P-Ray Special. We've been there before and we'll be back! Nice job, Tammy!

Having heard some good feedback on the place from some friends, we thought we would give it a try. The cafe is just off the square of downtown Garland. From the outside, I thought this might be somewhat of a dive! However, when we entered, it was fairly spacious and the tables all had nice cloth tablecloths. We were greeted... More

Nice eclectic decor ( see pictures ). We were there on a Friday and we both had the Fish & Chips special. Two Cod fillets, generous portion of fries and tartar sauce. Tasted good but not exceptional. The server was very attentive and parking was available on the street. I thought it was a bit expensive at $11.00 for the... More

Nice place in downtown Garland to have lunch. Had a fabulous burger and tri-salad plate. Food came out fast and was very good.

Ate hear about a month ago and enjoyed the food. I had the Chicken Fried Steak and it was very tender and crispy. Service was very good. Only problem was that it was a very plain room in a very plain location next to a busy street. Your were almost afraid to make a noise! Menu seemed a little limited.

Have been here several times. Chicken Nathan is still my favorite. Tried fried pork chops this time. Good and crispy. Others at table tried fish and chips, hamburger steak and chicken fried chicken. They serve beer and wine but no Marguaritas. Oh well still good.

Yumm!!!!! The food was so good here. It was like there is a old grandma cooking with love in the back! We had burgers and the Chicken dish that has the soup poured over it. So good, already planning when I am coming back.

Quaint little place, nicely decorated and clean on the square in downtown Garland. This was my first time to try this place and I was not disappointing, neither was any of my company. The food was amazing. We ate there during out lunch break and got in and out under an hour. Good amount of food and the specialty iced... More

I hope they do, as they need to address the issue of maintaining their establishment. I've raved about this restaurant in the past and still think it has very good food, but something I've noticed makes me lose my appetite when I eat there. Dirt!!! I ate there recently and again noticed dirty baseboards in the dining room and bathroom.... More
