The interpretation of Western cooking found at this restaurant leans heavily on cooking with wood fires. The dishes don't get too fancy but are executed with flair. Favorites include a hearty green chili pork, an extra large hamburger, spit-roasted chicken, and some lovely steaks. The menu changes seasonally, but you'll always find these selections or something comparable, as well as at least one item flavored with green chili. Seafood is always available as well.
On a recent visit, delicate crab cakes dusted in blue cornmeal, the aforementioned green chili pork stew, and a rich tortilla soup were on the menu. They were all delicious. Portions are generous; you can save money by going for lunch, which costs about half what dinner does. The dining room is comfortable, softly lit, and quieter than your average Austin restaurant. As might be expected, it's decorated in a Western theme that, while subdued, is still a bit clichéd. The desserts are impressive, but leave room for the margaritas.
