Wife had convinced me to try this place again. First time we tried, they started seating people ahead of us and there were no reservations. Second time, the food wasn't worth eating although the service was great. Last time I'm going back.

Remember the Elite from the 70s trek from DFW to Austin...traditional dark red and black decor. WoW! Now! The update was fabulous, decor, food, bar, everything was done right! Last visit food (CFS) service outstanding! Coldest tap Shiner I've ever had. New "favorite" restaurant!

We went to the Elite Circle Grille for lunch after visiting the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame. The food was very good and the service was excellent. I would eat again at this restaurant.
