We drive out of our way to visit this unassuming little restaurant in Winonna to have breakfast or lunch! The cooks have refined breakfast to a science, featuring one of the best Mexican style migas this side of the Yucatan! All breakfast plates are huge, well prepared and moderately priced. Plate lunches and sandwiches are also very good.

Everything I have tried on the menu is so tasty! But I really go for the coffee =) Getting a coffee order isn't always the fastest, but good things come to those that wait!

Come in the evening when it's cooler, sit outside and enjoy the view of the lake. Bring your own bottle of wine, and enjoy. My favorite is the canneloni. ?

We've been many times and usually it's good and a little slow to serve, but find. We went for Mother's Day (and we've seen it much more crowded so that wasn't the issue) and though the waitress was very nice and obviously doing what she could, we literally spent the afternoon waiting on all our food to get to us. It all came to each of us separately and spread apart. One person in our party was served his crawfish and was literally able to eat a plate of them before anyone else got anything. My youngest grandson was the last to get his and it was just shrimp. We got there about 1:15 and he didn't get his shrimp until right about 2 hours later. Of course those of us who had food shared,but that wasn't the point. After waiting for more than an hour for the "rest" of our food to get to us, we would have just left, but granddaughter insisted on waiting on her crawfish, which she did eventually get. With such a terrible experience you'd think they would have comped something -- oh, they did comp the frog leg order because after waiting 45 minutes, one of us that had ordered 2 pairs of frog legs had only received one. Go figure.

I heard about Red Rooster Icehouse at may barbershop two weeks ago. Good news travels fast. This time it only had to travel about 35 miles.
Driving back home from Dallas on U.S. Highway 80 is one of my favorite ways to get home from the DFW area (no I-20).
I dropped in to the Rooster to check it out. I was not disappointed. It's a Texas type place to spend some time.
The beer was cold and the fried pork rinds were great. I will be back!

My fiancé and I love this place! I took him there for his birthday last month because it's the only restaurant in east TX that he loves to go to over and over again. It was very busy the day we went (Valentine's weekend) and it took forever to get my food, but all was forgiven once I got it. Due to the bad weather we've been having the crawfish weren't available. This place has a reputation for big, juicy, flavorful crawfish so they didn't want to give their customers less than that. We had boiled shrimp and a fried shrimp po'boy and took a whole fried fish to go. Everything was delicious as usual. The portions are Texas sized! I love their food, except the fried rolls (yuck!). When we first started going to this place it was a small little BYOB hole in the wall with wood chip covered floors. Now the floors are solid and they've expanded to 2 dining rooms (1 indoor, 1 outdoor) and have a license to sell beer. They have live bands, karaoke, and lots of TVs. The wait staff is always friendly and happy to serve you. This place is family friendly as well. There are always groups of families there having dinner when we go. The sitting is picnic style so everyone becomes a family when you eat here. This place is definitely worth the drive. I tell everyone to make a trip to Circle M Crawfish Stand. It's a must!

When I want brisket or ribs, this is where I go. Love the smoky flavor of the brisket. They have a jalapeno sausage that is addictive! My favorite dish here is the baked potato loaded with brisket. It is epic. Also the sides served are very good. The beans and potato salad are excellent. Staff is friendly.

Having frequented this restaurant many times, we have grown to expect good food, friendly servers, and comfortable surroundings.
This is a cafe style establishment. Non- smoking now ( not in the past).
Food is good, ample portions, and usually served quickly.
Our last trip was an exception. Food cold, over cooked, and we waited an unusually long time for it to arrive. Hopefully just an off day. We will return and expect things to be back to par.

I have been twice now. I have not been disappointed on either occasion and I will probably be back this coming weekend. It is a nice set up and I like the covered outdoor seating area. I called in my second order and sat there in the rain while it was being prepared. I was completely at ease. The staff are so friendly, she even brought it out to me so I would not get wet at the window while it was raining. The pork chop sandwich is thick and juicy with a tasty fried crust with just enough spices. I imagine the grilled sandwich is good, but who wants grilled? Not this girl!! Worth the trip, must try it.
