I have never before had sweet potato and spinach enchiladas. My life is now complete! They were awesome. One member of our group had the vegetarian plate, and was also impressed.

Been going here for years - it always delivers great food and fine service. Menu is very robust : cedar plank salmon, pot roast, meatloaf, fish tacos, enchiladas, and burgers. I usually go on Wednesday for the meatloaf special. Best meatloaf this side of my Grandma's. Perfect spicing and overlay of tomato sauce. Accompanied by mashed potatoes and green beans... More

Small venue. Good food. Fresh bread. Dependable menu that has not changed much over past 17 years we have been coming. Not a very noisy restaurant but always full because of the vibe and food. A neighborhood relatively small but not tiny restaurant.

I joined six friends for dinner after the Texans defeat of the Raiders for a most enjoyable meal and hospitality. The table for seven was ready upon our arrival. The service was fast and the group lingered after finishing our meals for further conversation. There was absolutely no attempt to move us along in order to "flip" the table. The... More

This place has a good variety of quality dishes. Fried oysters appetizer for $10 was very good. My wife had an 8 oz. tenderloin with sides, also very good. Quiet location with good service. Also, tea is tasty, with lemon slices. Sedate crowd makes for a pleasant location for nice dinner at reasonable prices. Oh, huge onion rings and fried... More

First time to have dinner at this well kept secret. Will be back to sample other offerings on the menu. Went for an early dinner on a Sunday night, was seated quickly and enjoyed attentive service. This is quite a popular local spot, and understand why. Warm feel to the restaurant, quiet and peaceful atmosphere. Food was good and portions... More

Dropped by this restaurant after hearing a lecture at the Museum of Fine Arts on Urbanism by Richard Florida. Great talk followed by a great dinner. Waitress and hostesses were very nice and attentive. We had a nice inexpensive bottle of white wine (Viognier). I had the pecan crusted chicken. Very tasty. The sweet potatoes were a little much. Couldn't... More

Stopped here to meet friends for brunch while we were visiting Houston as a recommendation from our hotel concierge. We had the jalapeno shrimp, sweet potato enchiladas and the burger. All delicious. Great & attentive service (thanks, Josh!), decent beer list and reasonably priced. Great section of town. Will definitely come back next time we visit.
