We arrived for early dinner. The restaurant was empty when we arrived. It was very hot outside and hot inside. We found ants on our table while we were eating. The food we ordered had no flavor. We ate what we could and left quickly.

Stopped here on the way to Marble Falls. The daily specials are good and the service by Aszha was great. It wasn't crowded the day we were there...mostly locals. Desserts looked good, but we didn't try any.
