The texas sheet cake is the only reason I go there. OMG, the milk chocolate frosting just dripping w/chocolate cake and you need that glass of milk. All other food is so so.

I've been to this restaurant with my kids, my senior parents, and had their catered food at work as well. Consistently good quality and tasty.

I had the tri-tip, cheesy potatoes, salad, and chocolate cake. Salty's BBQ has much better tri-tip! I thought the icing on the cake was too sugary. Service was excellent. Prices higher than I expected. $40 for 2 people. Altogether, rather mediocre.

Had lunch today. Had "non wimpy" Chili, meaning no beans. A large bowl is just as they fill to the top rim. Served with great corn bread muffin. My co-worker had a plate of meat, choosing tri-tip. Noticed no meat left.
