I had a steak sandwich here for lunch and was able to modify it to my own tastes. They have mushrooms and cheese on there's don't like either so had that taken off and add the string onions instead very thick steak cooked to my medium rare liking was very good.

My step father loves prime rib and loves it here. We were in town from Houston and enjoyed it! Great value and lots of food. A festive Christmas meal. We made reservations and didn't have to wait
