We used to like Billy Jack's especially for Monday night half-price appetizers. But it was obvious the last few times that things were not going well. Too bad it closed seemingly overnight. Unsure how to rate a restaurant that is no more.

Inventive Tex-Mex menu. Wonderful catering too. "Gourmet" southwestern fare. Great bar area! Owners are "hands-on"!

good beer on tap. Interesting lite fare--just what we needed to have a good planning session. There were also some self- serve snacks which were very tasty. Appropriate background noise so we could speak our minds without anyone eavesdropping.
