This recently-remodeled restaurant is a favorite among foothills residents. It has subdued lighting and large, comfortable leather booth seats. After recent refurbishing, the interior is impeccably maintained. The menu is pricey but worth it for a large meal. The dinner Porterhouse steak, served with a side salad and choice of potato and vegetable, but the steak is 20 ounces. The "Texas Tea," comprised of a half-liter of Smirnoff vodka, gin, rum and a splash of cranberry juice. That's one cheap potent potable to you and me.
