I tried the beef brisket dinner with cole slaw and unsweetened iced tea, with texas toast. The meal was delicious, the price was right, and the staff was very friendly. This is a very pleasant, peaceful place to dine due to the wonderful atmosphere, and most importantly, extreme cleanliness which is very refreshing during these times when cost and cleanliness are important, but more than that, understanding and friendly staff, skilled cooks, and wise management all come into play for success. You've earned it!
