This happens to be a favorite of one of our family members, so we keep going, but outside of a few select dishes there is better options else where. The service here has always left us desiring more. It's either basically non-existent or as short as it can be, even when it's not busy. They do some good vegetarian adjustments... More

My husband and I were here for dinner on a Saturday. They accommodated our request to sit close to one of the two TVs so we could watch college football. The margaritas were very good, tasted fresh with quality ingredients. Our food was good, not necessarily great, but that might have been a function of our choices. Many things on... More

Food was good, but they brought out our appetizer after our entrees. No bueno. We saw other tables getting their food boxed and bagged for them, then we were just brought a box, diy. $45 for lunch/brunch. Eh.

Nice place. Loved the atmosphere. Our waitress was friendly and the service was great despite the crowd of people. The food was quite different. They had some unique spins on some old classics. All in all, it was quite a lovely place. Will definitely visit again.

Stopped here for lunch in a group of 3. The atmosphere inside is welcoming and warm, but we chose to eat outside in the cafe area. Our waiter was very helpful in explaining their impressive menu and describing the specials -- and he was ever attentive in making sure we were satisfied and re-filling our tea, soda and water glasses......

We were visiting for a convention and this restaurant was listed in the brochure for The Old Market area. Staff was adequate, and they were running their butts off! Also very friendly. Food quality seemed less than what we would have expected. It was just above average for bar food. French fries were very limp and almost soggy. My brisket... More

Located in the Old Market area - perfect for a stroll. Great staff, service, and food. The house favorite is Sharon's Enchilada. Other great Mex food. Great selection of wines by the glass and don't forget the great margaritas too. Fun place to go and have an appetizer too.
