Great steaks and specials. Went there with another couple. A little pricey but worth it. Looks rough on the outside but nice on the inside.

We were the first ones there for dinner, we had a reservation. We waited thirty minutes for water and coffee. Another 90 minutes for our food. Second time we've been there, and it's almost impossible to get drink refills.

Excellent food. Recommend a reservation. Well worth the wait. It's like eating at a fine dining restaurant on a small scale (small area).

This place is a hidden gem. Great food, all homemade. Potato skins were so good. Filet is ordered by the ounce. Would definitely dine there again soon.

Went to Diso's with friends and a great steak. You select the size of the cut that you desire and the doneness factor and after a short while the steak arrives exactly as you asked for it. Not close but perfect - what's not to...More

Best meal I have had dining out in a long time. Great food. Small local 'hole in the wall' restaurant. The owner was our waiter.
