In a word: Delicious.

The basis of the brunch menu is the Texas Scramble plate. There was another plate available (bicuits and gravy maybe?), but the highlight of the menu is obviously the Texas Scramble combo. The Texas Scramble is scrambled eggs with red and green peppers, onions, and "spices" (which was fresh parsley or cilantro or something - sorry, I'm no good with spices). The vegetables were obviously freshly chopped, there was a perfect balance of vegetables in the eggs, and the eggs themselves were scrabled nicely, neither dry nor too wet.

For $12.99, you get a generous serving of the Texas Scramble and three additional items from a list of maybe seven or eight, including bicuits and gravy, biscuits with butter and jam, fresh fruit, bacon, barbecue hash, potatoes, and maybe a couple other items. My DC and I both got the potatoes and the biscuit, while I got it with butter and jam and the fruit bowl and she had it with gravy and the barbecue hash.

The potatoes were perfection, crisp on the outside, light in the middle, slightly seasoned, and just all around fantastic. My DC thought that the barbecue hash was phenomenal. The fruit bowl was a generous serving of watermelon (lots!), pinapple, honeydew, red grapes, and green grapes, all nice and fresh. The bicuits are the special recipe of one of the chefs at Redbones, according to our waitress, and they were delicious. On the denser side as far biscuits go (not a crumbly biscuit at all), but not in a bad way, they were soft and tasty. The gravy was unfortunately unappealing and just seemed to be missing something. It took two tries to get the butter and strawberry jam to the table, but it was worth it and understandable given that this was their first brunch. No doubt they'll get the kinks worked out quickly.

They also offer bloody marys as well as pinapple mojitos and raspberry mojitos. We both had the raspberry ones and found them to be light and refreshing, a great addition to our meal.

All together, for the two plates and two drinks, our bill came to $40 and change, and we agreed that we'll be back for a second round very soon.
