Our diverse menu features premium house-cut steaks, ribs, seafood, crab cakes, gourmet salads, and burgers.

I love this place

I love this place, they are the best around. I ran corporate restaurants for many many years and refuse to eat in them now for obvious reasons lol. This is small family opened restaurant is why I originally got into the business. I love this place and you should try them out.

Great place to eat

I have lived in Pasadena for 16 years and this was my first visit. We decided to dine here as part of our support to local businesses. They were only open for carry out but we didn’t mind. We were greeted by the owner and had friendly conversation while our food was prepared. I got black bean soup and Kathy’s salad. My husband got the cowboy burrito. Everything was delicious and portions were a good size. We were given complementary chips and salsa. Will definitely be back!

Surprisingly Good

Have often driven by but never explored. Really happy we did. The shrimp appetizer was fantastic. I went with the special of the day. A steak dish. FANTASTIC. Perfectly cooked and seasoned. The other option we chose was a burrito. Very well done. Nice flavor and presentation. Dessert was fried ice cream! The staff was well informed and helpful. … The food is well worth the visit
