Our table was prepared with a special birthday greeting for me. The complimentary dessert was served in a tray which featured chocolate, hand-drizzled best wishes. Sumptuous food, well-plated Lovely atmosphere. Plenty of parking behind the establishment.

My husband & I celebrated our 33rd anniversary there for the first time. It is an amazing place with excellent service and food. It is very romantic and historic building with great entertainment. It is a real gem in the middle of Old historic McAllen.
