The Mario smothered with red sauce, raisins, & pecans is our favorite. We also like the Sangria margaritas. The supreme nachos are also very good.

We were in Odessa TX for one night and looked for a dinner place. Upon querying the locals this surface as a recommendation which we followed without regrets. The food was good and served hot. Good service and friendly. This is a worthwhile eatery.
