A friend suggested we eat here. Being new to New Braunfels I was happy to try a new restaurant. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised. I learned that it is under new management. It is in a strip mall and doesn't look like much from the...More

I'm sitting here with family waiting on our food, and we have already had a terrible experience. We sat in a corner tucked away with the pickle jars. We reseated at a booth, our waiter had to have our order repeated four people, there areonly...More

This is not meant to be a "dig"...the Luby's comment I mean. If you like comfort food, it is the best place in town. The dinner entrees run from $11-13 and that includes 2-3 sides. Portions were generous but not overwhelming. The food was clearly...More

To start with, the biscuits were awful. Cold and flavorless. Chicken and Dumplings were the worst I've ever had. The dumplings looked and tasted like styrofoam. Not sure if this was opening jitters but I'll have to think about giving it a second chance. It...More
