I love the BBQ and they have a great screened area. I love that my kids can run and play in the grass and I can sit. No one has to listen to us fuss inside. Love it!

Food is always good here! Wait staff is friendly. We live close so we go often. It's fun to see the longhorns grazing in the back pasture.

This place was amazing for us! We were in Texas, traveling from Indiana & stopped here before heading to the airport to fly home. Everything about the restaurant was fabulous. We came upon it by accident but I am so glad we did!
