One of Harlingen's top eatery's. Chef Jesse does an awesome job on the dishes. Feature both traditional and new creations on the menu. Service can be hit or miss sometimes, but overall the food is excellent.

In addition to our full lunch menu, we have daily specials which constantly bring new flavors and exciting dishes to you and your guests. The pizzas from our brick oven have quickly become the buzz about town with their thin Naples crust and endless possibilities featuring different sauce and topping options.The food will be home-style and not pretentious. Whenever possible local suppliers will be used and area farms will grow custom produce to our exacting standards.
