    SUPER delicious food for very reasonable prices! You even get popcorn to start your meal. Try the Chicken Almondine or Jalapeno Hangar Steak. You actually won't be disappointed with anything.

    Waited an hour for the best brunch buffet we've had in a long while! Texas casserole, chorizo tamale scramble, and bread pudding were my favorites. Service with a smile, too, and great OJ! Yum

    Great service. Great food I had the Bohimian sandwich. It was so amazing. The atmosphere was relaxed and very comfortable.

    Sip on a refreshing cocktail while nibbling on fresh cornbread and enjoying the people watching. Then dive in to some of Austin's most authentic fare - chicken fried steak or mac 'n cheese.

    I'm sure its been said a thousand times but the green chile mac is amazing. Slightly spicy, loaded with chicken and wonderfulness.

    Go on Sundays between 10:30 and 2:30 for their buffet brunch. But be forewarned, the wait is CRAZY long no matter what time you go. Longer parties wait the longest. It's definitely worth it though. Be

    Split the sweet potato pecan pie. It's quite literally a whole pie. Ordering it with someone else ensures you won't try to eat the whole thing yourself.

    Order the Rainbow Trout with Corn Bread Stuffing, the Moonshine "corn dog" shrimp, and the signature skillet apple pie for dessert. Then do it again the next night.

    You can sit at the bar and get full service. This is a way to avoid the wait for Sunday brunch. Show up at 2:15 right before buffet shuts down at 2:30. Tips for Sunday Funday people!!

    I recommend the bread pudding. It was very good. The Grits side dish is a winner as well.

    The corndog-style shrimp are a novel concept, but lack flavor. The batter could use a punch & the shrimp need a marinade. The trout is tasty but relies heavily on the bacon cornbread stuffing.

    The pecan crusted catfish with homemade hot sauce is excellent. Jalapeño cornbread also very good. Friendly, helpful staff.

    You can close your eyes, put your finger on the menu, and get wherever your finger lands. Trust me, everything's good here. Oh, try the green chile macaroni.

    I had the jalapeno hanger steak with Mac and cheese... Steak was good, but the Mac and cheese was obviously premade and plated. It was a dry and reheated disappointment.

    Green chile Macaroni is a bit overated. Not as unhealthy as I expected, though not as tasty either.
