Very good burger and friendly, good service. I had the Ortega and my husband had the burger of the day. Both were very tasty. We sat outside to enjoy the sweeping view south.

Visited McGraw's on Houghton for a Friday evening dinner on the patio. View was fantastic across the valley on a perfect evening with a small breeze. Food was excellent burgers, ribs, salsa, fish & chips, and salads. Margaritas were also very tasty - beers were...More
