    I enjoyed my veggie sloppy joe - it was spicy and good with crunchy fried onion rings :) I had a great time :)

    Most everyone seemed to like their meals (spaghetti & meatballs, sloppy joe, pork chop and hamburger). I had the pecan encrusted catfish (bland) with brussel sprout side (very good). I will give this restaurant another try and order a different dish.

    Food sounds really good from what Barry posted and John always picks great restaurants. I'm attending a cooking class that night. Sorry to miss this event. If its really good hope we will do a return visit.

    I'll be at Zocalo too but can't make dinner. You guys have to get the amazing mint lemonade. For dessert, go for the ding dongs and pop tarts.
