We heard about the Bloody Mary and had to see what the hype was about! They do not disappoint!!!! That was a beautiful piece of artwork!

The food is excellent and service is good but it is way overpriced for what it is. I'm glad I went for the experience but I won't be returning.

The restaurant in a gas station is kind of over played in this one, because the actual restaurant area is quite normal looking for a restaurant. Food was great service was good.

When last I ate here, it actually was a gas station and there were just a few tables near the grill. If you wanted a beer, you got it out of the cooler. I have followed their progress since I left the Mid-Cities and was determined to stop by on my recent visit to FW. I am so glad my... More

Met family at this cafe recommended by others, not knowing it shared a gas station entrance. Questioned the GPS and called, is this right? Encouraged to give it a chance, we did and the food was great overall. We shared an appetizer of stuffed artichoke hearts that were awesome! The side salads were nice sized and crisp, not unexpected. I... More

You would never imagine the food this place is rocking out of the kitchen by the looks of the outside of this place. I say that not because it is dirty, but because it is an old gas station converted into a 5 star resturant. The inside has been converted as well into a large seating resturant with a patio... More

A surprising diamond in the rough. Great food in a gas station, quicky store atmosphere. I have had several entrees here all have been very good and reasonably priced. My only gripe is the short door. I am 3" taller than it is.

Absolutlely get the bloody mary as a meal choice. The cioppino is great. The chicken fried steak incredible, Monte Cristo surprisingly good ....haven't found a bad menu item yet. All this in a gas station? Read the history.....great success story.

The food is excellent and nicely presented and the service was excellent but this is not a 4-5 star restaurant to justify the prices. It's more of an old style converted diner worthy of 2-3 star prices. I still can't believe what I paid for what we got. A small measly piece of side bread with my dinner and no... More

Had the blacken chicken sandwich, with a side salad it was very good but pricey 12.00 for sandwich 2.50 for salad. Husband had chicken parmigiano no drinks. This was lunch 27.60.
