This is one of those places we've been meaning to try but never got around to. Last night we took the plunge and while I can't stress enough that this is NOT haute cuisine, or even necessarily cuisine, for that matter, the food was good and fresh and cheap and a great time was had by all. Hub and pups ordered a pizza which tasted great. I had a strip steak with a peppercorn crust. Not much pepper in the crust but done exactly to my specifications and satisfying in that cheap-steak sort of way. It came with a tiny tiny baked potato served with real butter and tiny cups of sour cream and green onions, and a stir fried vegetable medley. Our friend had the rolled lasagna which looked like something out of Mom's Better Homes Cookbook from 1958 but tasted homey and satisfying. Hub and I had a half a carafe of the house Chianti which was worth every penny of the seven bucks we paid for it. The pups shared a grossly rich piece of chocolate cake for dessert and were thrilled. The whole shebang was about $60.00.

The decor is total red vinyl with a cool bar area, a Franz Hal repro and other paintings of girls with pointy boobs in lingerie. They have entertainment most nights. Last night, Sunday, there was a good little jazz trio performing standards and chatting affably with the crowd, who all seem to know each other. A perfect friendly find in the neigbhorhood.
