A lot bigger than I thought and was actually more like a compound. Great food even though it's not real close to Austin.

Yes, they allow dogs. But only on the outside patio and they must be on a leash. The outdoors is where they have the music so it's not all bad except in the Summer when it can reach 100° out there and 90° at night.
