Asador restaurant, created by Celebrity Chef Dean James Max, focuses on sustaining modern farm to fire cuisine merging influences that stem from our local Texas purveyors, mixed with the food combinations of North and South America and based on open fire cooking.

Our cuisine is the merger from influences that stem from our local Texas purveyors, to the flavors of North and South America and based on open flame cooking. We are a casual restaurant that strives to provide fine dining service, incredibly fresh food, and reasonable prices.

Our modernism is reflected in many different aspects such as our focus on all fresh products made in house with no fillers or preservatives. We buy all natural meats and poultry, sustainable seafood, and as much locally fresh produce as possible.

I was excited to try something different for Thanksgiving. The flavor of the food was top notch! I’ve always watched cooking shows wondering how the food they taste can be that good. I experienced it today!
I know that sounds silly, but I’ve never had a reason to say, “you have the perfect amount of sweet, savory and the heat.” I had the pleasure of really experiencing that!

We found ourselves unexpectedly in town at Thanksgiving and wanted to have a nice meal out. We thought that there would be more choices at Asador due to the write up, but they were only offering their lunch menu when we arrived. Their Thanksgiving specials wouldn’t start until later in the day. We ordered brisket tacos, steak sandwich, Mac and cheese, fries and the Waygu burgers. Options were al a carte but sides were available to order. The portion size was adequate, but small for the price. The food was prepared perfectly and was delicious. There were only two other groups dining when we were there, so the service was excellent! All in all, a great experience!

The service was impeccable. The food was rated great by 3 of our party of 4, very good by the fourth. We were here Sunday at 1:00 PM, were seated and served in an appropriate time, then sat and talked until 4:00 PM. The entire time we were the only guests in the restaurant. Its location is clearly a disadvantage on weekends, but it is good to learn that there is a really good restaurant where you can get in at the last minute on a Sunday.

Service was very good and it is a lovely little restaurant. The lunch menu is very limited and selections are random, at best. Food I ordered was OK but there was nothing I would have liked to order on the menu and some of the menu items were almost silly - Cobb salad being a case in point. Either make it as it is supposed to be made or give it another name.

Early pre concert dinner at Asador was great- we were so looking forward to our early dinner after reviewing menu, but, dinner was not served til after 5. After a brief pause, we embraced the lunch menu. The rib tips were Lisa’s recommendation and she was spot on. Chips/guac were delicious and habanero wings got a mixed review from our group. Lisa and team made it a really fun meal and got us out in time to leave for concert! I would definitely go back.

I was very disappointed with Asador. Other reviews made it sound so much better than it is. It is just a hotel restaurant with fairly mediocre food, ambiance and service. It would be fine if you were staying in the hotel and did not want to go out,but not suitable for a special occasion.

I did not know that this was restaurant was in a hotel. I would have not booked it as I think it’s rare that a chain hotel would have a good restaurant. I was pleasantly surprised. The dining room was nice, service great and the food (Easter Buffet) was really good.

Nice restaurant and service was great but food was just ok to me. They didn’t have any daily specials and menu online didn’t seem to be same as one in restaurant (I like to look before going to have idea of what I’ll get)

Menu was kind of farm to table/Mexican which was a little confusing to me. I would possibly go back but just choose different items!

Seating is limited and everything we had needed salt and/or pepper or some seasoning with the exception of the mac and cheese and roasted cauliflower. Had the wagyu cowboy steak for our main course. It was cooked well and very tender but seriously lacked flavor. I’d go back for the mac and cheese alone though!

Very good food, but definitely a convention center hotel restaurant. We thought our mussels were probably the best we have ever had - a great combination of seasoning for the broth, and the mussels themselves were plump and perfectly cooked. The shrimp and grits were fantastic also if you like to actually taste both the grits and shrimp - they were not soaked in cheese/butter like some places. My cioppino was very good but basically just a collection of tasty shell fish and fish - not a lot of soup/stew to go with it. Next time I will get the tomahawk pork chop that I saw go to another table - it looked amazing!
The only negative to the restaurant is how obvious it was we were next door to a convention center in a hotel. Almost everyone in the restaurant was from the same convention and knew each other, so the environment was more of a loud dinner party for them.

My family went for Thanksgiving. The decor was Texas modern but warm and we felt totally at home. Food was fresh and very good. We loved the Brussels sprouts and Mac and cheese. The Thanksgiving special was delicious. The beef tenderloin was perfectly prepared. Service was extremely friendly and accommodating. Overall a great experience for enjoying a holiday away from home. The only criticism for me was there were no dessert wines available.

Asador was a lovely surprise. Hosted a business dinner with a number business colleagues including a couple of foodies. Menu was stocked with attractive options with a notable farm to fire flavor. Started with an excellent cheese and charcuterie board and moved on to entrees including a tomahawk pork chop, several steaks, and an outstanding roast chicken breast. Several bottles of a pleasant Tempranillo later, we sampled multiple dessert all of which were delicious. Our server was attentive and engaged. Overall a great meal in an unexpected spot.
