The food was hearty, rich and rustic. I loved most of the appetizers we ordered, but the ricotta dumplings stole the show for me. I ordered the tri tip and thought the meat was prepared deliciously. While my steak was beautiful, it came with a salad on the same plate that I believe they drizzled olive oil on—too much olive oil. It was a good thing that our little table was on a slant so that the oil could pool to one side while I enjoyed the tri tip. I loved all the windows opening up and brightening up the space. I loved the quirky and simple decor.
Okay, here's a major claim, but it's true... BEST TEX-MEX I'VE EVER HAD (and I'm from Texas, y'all!) I was traveling for business and this was one of the only half-way decent looking places around. I ordered the burrito dish that is smothered with cheese, etc (giant enchilada, really). Sat at the bar and talked to the lady bar tender. The only other patrons (this was noon) were a few locals of various rough shape. The exterior is great looking, the interior a local bar looking place. The tex-mex? The. best. ever. Maybe it was the high altitude?
