"Menu changes keep things simple - food is wonderful and always enjoyable. I have never had a bad meal at IHB since I have been coming here for the last 5-years. Some of my favorites are the specials; pork and fish tacos, steaks, salads all good stuff.
Beers are good and getting better. Must have slapped the brew master around ;)

"New menu for mat - they added their standard house beers and drinks on the first page rather than a separate beer menu with a paper handout. Seems like most of the food items are there. They got rid of a few things including the cheese plates.. Other than that looks pretty familiar..
Enjoy going here, very consistent food and service with great beers...

"I am trying to understand how this place gets such horrible reviews on Yelp?.?.?.?
Tex Max has been in business for 30+ years and has changed ownership/management a few times, but how can a restaurant be in business this long if it is that bad.. Drink to that - Yelp Haters!!! I can't speak to the bar... but it's always pretty packed so it can't be that bad..
The food is always consistent and has always been delicious. I have been coming here for 10 years and have never had a bad meal.
It's a small place and it gets busy.. Service can be slow occasionaly and high turnover with servers - gee nothing new to the restaturant business... They still have 3 full time servers that have been there since I have been going there. Go and enjoy!

"Our first time dining here. We knew of Ristorante Castello when they were in Lansdale but never ate there.. Service was terrific! Friendly and knowledgeable wait staff. The owner came over to our table to thank us, a nice touch. It's BYOB but also has a bar which is nice to have the choice. The menu is very nice and simple, but hold on until you hear about the specials. I was impressed, they had an appetizer special, a salad special, and two meat and fish specials. Making your choice very difficult.. The pasta is fresh and the sauces are divine. My 9 year old had the veal and ate everything on his plate. I cut his veal for him with minimal effort so I had to try it and was impressed.
Overall a great find. We will be back for sure!!"

"Good menu decent specials. Service is spotty depending on when you go and who you get. The food really is very good and you can expect a certain level of quality food here at Tex Mex. It's been in Lansdale for 30+years under several different owner/management but it continues to churn out good food. It's not the best Mexican food you will ever eat but it's very good and an enjoyable establishment."

"they have outdoor dining now which is ok .. Setting is not the greatest and the umbrellas hang over the sidewalk entrance when opened.
A sign of a good restaurant is consistencey and IHB is just that.. We will continue to go and enjoy the food and beer.. Sangria is good, but they need to make red..

"We've been coming to IHB for some time now and you can always enjoy a good steak here.. They are well seasoned, cooked to the temperature as ordered, and very savory.. Beers; I always stick with the Vienna Red, but they usually have a good selection of IPA's, ales, pilsners, lagers and speciality beers. With fall around the corner, I also enjoy the pig iron porter..
If I had a criticism; the cheese plates could be slightly larger..."
