"Great Tex-Mex food - wonderful premium pour margaritas! Menu slightly changed to accommodate larger combos and more flexibility on the menu. Had the fish tacos which is one of my faves. Brisket is fabulous.. My son had a quesadilla.
Always reliable and consistent food quality.. This will remain one of our favorites on our list..
Open table reservations are easily obtainable and seated right on time..
You can get pitchers of beer now in the dining area! Whoo Hoo!!!

"Great drinks and overall cool ambiance to put you in a party mood sitting back watching JB videos. Food is decent but not great. Great place to bring your kids and let loose. We had a great waitress who kept the drink coming. I started out with 5 o'clock somethere rum drink and then several perfect margaritas.. Surprisingly no issues honoring our OT reservation. Open table is the greatest.."

"First time here for me. I had a 14 oz. filet - it was good, not great.. Huge piece of meat, that was very thick and was rare in the middle. also had some sinewy parts which was disappointing for a $50+ piece of meat. Wedge salad was good as well lots of blue cheese and bacon.. Bacon wrapped scallops were good..
My wife has eaten at several Palms around the country and while it's good, its not great. We prefer other steak houses. Again, good just not great..

"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!!"
