Zagat Survey: Texas Restaurants 2006 #5 – Top Ratings by Cuisine: American (Traditional) #5 – Top Bangs for the Buck ZAGAT Ratings (on a scale of 1-30) Food – 22 (very good to excellent) Decor – 13 (fair to good) Service – 17 (good to very good) Cost – $12 (reflects estimated price of dinner with one drink & a tip, lunch usually costs 25% less) Surveyors’ Commentary: Unsurprisingly, owing to “overwhelming selection of delectable desserts” (“the carrot cake makes you want to eat your vegetables”), these upper Kirby and Galleria area “chocoholics’ dream” spots continue to be “crowd-pleasers”; surveyors who are sweet on this duo also appreciate the Traditional American meals and report that ‘upbeat” staffers and board games at every table help make it “fun for all ages.”
