The staff treats you like family. The food is freshly prepared and tasty. Often have great specials. My favorite is the steak quesadilla. The sangria is good and the margaritas are too.

Whenever we go to Lista's we are never disappointed. Excellent specials, but a great standard menu. The Cajun Cream of Crab soup can't be beat. Our fallback if we can't decide is the Cowboy Burrito. It is the bomb! The beef/steak melts in your mouth....More
