"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..."

"Another review for one of our favorite local restaurants. It's difficult to find good mexican/tex-mex restaurant that consitenly has good food, especially in Lansdale/North Wales area. Well look no further. Whether you are just looking for casual drinks and appetizers, or if you want a truly delicious tex-mex dish that will have you coming back for more Tex-Mex is your place to go.. During our last visit, we noticed that service has been stepped up. It was Friday (busy time), and they've added additional help to clear the tables giving the waitstaff more attention on guests. Don't forget to check out the specials menu.. Each time we try somthing new from the specials menu we are always pleasently surprised by deliciousness!"

"We have been coming to Redstone for the last couple of years now since it has opened and are always pleasantly surprised. The food has always been excellent and the service is very good. Whether it is sea food, steaks, or one of their flatbreads you really can't go wrong.. Also we had the cheese plate which was one of the best we have had.. They used to have a drink menu. We did not see it, or were not presented with it? Not sure if they still do, but they had a nice selection of cocktails and pretty good vodka infusions that were very enjoyable."

"This place has been in North Wales for years.. You can always expect consistency and simnply great food from the kitchen. We've never had a bad meal here and have been coming for years. Some of our favorites are; fish tacos, beef brisket, pulled pork, quesadillas, chili relenos just to mention a few. Don't forget to check out the Specials menu as well.. The premium pour Margheritas on rocks w/salt are the best around.. Service can sometimes get slow when they are busy but the food is always good.."

The traditional Brazilian serving style of "Rodizio" originated in the Southern part of Brazil as a result of the form in which cowboys, or "Gauchos," cooked their cattle over an open flame, also known as "na Brasa". The style of cooking quickly spread throughout the country when knowledge of how the cooking technique left meats and poultry succulent and satisfying. Today, na'Brasa Brazilian Steakhouse keeps tradition alive with its unique and eventful style of dining. Guests are greeted by aromatic starters including Brazilian cheese bread and fried bananas. To tantalize your taste buds even further, na'Brasa's gourmet salad bar is compiled of thirty-three hot and cold items - a first course that sets a perfect complementary note to what's to come.

"First time for birthday celebration. Salad bar is good, well kept. Few meats/cheese from Debruno Bros, nice touch.. The rest of the meat orgy was a mixed bag.. In order of rankings, top sirloin, salmon, filet, sausage, and lamb chops. Average was; flank steak, pork chops, chicken wrapped in bacon and anything else.. These were either in short supply or completely overcooked even when specifically requesting medium rare.. Top Tip: Order lots of expensive drinks and speak up about what you like, otherwise if you wait patiently like we did you will end up missing out on the 'variety' this place touts. Our adjacent table of piggies were scavenging all the bacaon wrapped anything getting 3 or more portions each. Next time, I go Fogo!"

"My son ordered the tenderloin burrito off the specials menu and gobbled it up! He said it was awesome.. I tasted a bite and it was really good. The meat was cooked to perfection very tender and flavorful. My wife and I had the beef brisket.. It too was awesome. I had the jalapeno potato salad and black beans as side dishes.. My wife got the corn bread.. Mmm wonderfully prepared, tender as ever melt in your mouth meal..
Always a great place to go expectations of a great meal..
If you are there on the weekend ask for Jay as your server.. He’s the best!!!

Il Corso establishment was founded in 1993 by two native Italian women from the south of Italy.<br /><br />They chose to name their restaurant "Il Corso" because it means "the path". Their goal is to guide their clients on a path to a wonderful experience.<br /><br />We pride ourselves on selecting the finest ingredients for our recipes. In addition to our menu, we offer daily specials that your server will present to you.<br />Il Corso's warm, cozy ambiance is complimented by an exquisite selection of moderately priced wines, full bar and nurtured by a friendly and knowledgeable staff serves.

"Great Italian food! Pastas are excellent! Menu online is slightly different than in the restaurant. Service was very good in typical Italian fashion. They were out of the buffalo mozzerella appetizer but we got burrata instead.. I had pasta with mushrooms. It was cooked perfectly and very fresh tasting. My wife had the Gnocchi which I sampled and they melted in your mouth with wonderful flavors.. Next time I will definitely try some fish or meat..
Put this one on your list if you are going for Italian.."
