One can't ask for a more gracious and hospitable host than Ali, and he is also a great cook. Our daughter thinks the steaks are better than anything she can get in Austin, and I think the orange roughy is the best I have had anywhere. And the lamb on the last Saturday of each month is worth a special... More

To be fair - the reason that I don't want you to go for selfish reasons - the place isn't that big - and it was packed. So we want room for us on our next visit, which will occur. On a Saturday night it looked packed, it was, so we had a cocktail in the bar (club) while waiting... More

Drove two hours off of our intended route to visit this restaurant. Based on Reviews online and in a small book about landmark cafés across the state of Texas, we had high expectations. The building was fun but three different service staff waited on our table. Two of the wait staff were great and respected our desire for time to... More

My husband and I went on Thursday night which is all you can eat shrimp! We loved it! Fried or boiled shrimp, fries or baked potato, and salad. It's really busy so get there early or you'll have to wait a while for a table.

Had a great time and meal!! The owner visits your table and makes you feel like you're visiting in his home (and very welcome there). Food is excellently prepared, salad (from the salad bar) is fresh, crisp and plentiful. I had the 10oz. filet, very tender and flavorful, with a loaded baked potato. No room for dessert😞, will have to... More

This place has great food, they have the very best grilled chicken breast that I have ever ate! Everything here is good, great friendly staff, awsome atmosphere, nothing bad about this place! If you haven't ate here, you must go try it! You'll go back!

Everything I have ever had here has just been wonderful. Ali is a fantastic chef. He makes the best filet I have ever eaten. The prime rib and always delicious and you get an enormous portion. Love the Margarita shrimp and crab enchiladas when they have them. I also love the salad bar here. Everything is fresh and always good.... More

This is a local classic. The people that go through the area should stop by. The owner and staff are friendly. I always eat there on Thursday evening when i'm in the area. All you can eat boiled and fried shrimp.
