great food! it was very busy on the day my team went for our Y/E holiday lunch (only 5 of us) however, we were one of the first tables seated (at 11:30) but with big parties coming in, it took over an hour to get our food. We were kind of forgotten...but the food made up for it!

Thanks Hondo for making this possible.

We've previously visited Hondo's and had a fantastic experience. This experience left a little to be desired. Our server did a good job, but the people delivering food left a little to be desired. Also we sent a dessert back (and admitted it was our fault for not fully considering what was ordered) which was met with an unexpected amount of resistance- in this case from the server, not the manager. Overall the food was decent, but for the price point, it wasn't the overall experience I was hoping for. We'll likely be back, but we won't be rushing...

Just what we wanted for a celebration. Quiet enough to hear each other talk. The food was so good we ate it all. Usually once we are satiated we stop and have the leftovers boxed up. Our waitress was so pleasant. Great place for special occasions or even an everyday lunch!

As always, an excellent meal. But I had received an email with an acknowledgement of our wedding anniversary, and it was not honored because it was Sunday. It did not cause us any angst, but did think it was odd; especially since the restaurant had less than 50% of the tables occupied. Still, a very excellent evening.

We were seated right away and our drink orders were very promptly delivered. The server was very helpful with the menu. The night we were there the crowd was a bit too loud for my liking but that is no fault of the restaurant. My husband's steak was made to perfection but he would have rather ordered prime rib which was not on the menu. The sauce on my ribs was too sweet and there was too much of it and ribs were very fatty. Maybe the extra sauce should be served on the side. We have been to this restaurant before and thought that the food was not as good as usual.

Sunday Brunch was a nice event with music playing by 2 musicians. The omlet maker & station provided fresh omlets to one's liking with an array of vegetables and ham to add. Also there was ham or prime rib being served as well. However this area would get backed up quickly and the wait was long. The salads were fresh and fruits as well. The entrees had fish, a creamed chicken dish but the grits were absolutely delicious! Squash; bacon, sausage and wonderful seafood bisque. The desserts did not disappoint with coconut cake, carrot cake and a chocolate cake were our choices! Only thing we would recommend is to watch the buffet when it was nearly done and to have maybe 2 people at the cramped omlet station. All in all it was a delicious and enjoyable event. The cost was more than we would normally spend and would have appreciated coffee or soft drink to be included.

Steak was outstanding, everything else was average. Music was too loud. Not enough servers for the number of tables which made service slow. 2 glasses of wine had cork in them. Overall, I was disappointed with the experience, I expected more.

Hondos is always reliable when you want a lunch out that is a little bit more special. Took a girl friend who needed a lift. Food is excellent and the service was just right - attentive but not intrusive. We wanted to sit and chat for awhile before ordering and the server was very gracious.

I was very disappointed with my steak. I got the boneless ribeye and it had very little taste. Perhaps I should have gotten a bone in, but this was particularly bad. The fries were decent but nothing special. Mashed potatoes were good. My seafood soup was good but not great. The honey butter on the bread was the best thing. I would go back and give it another try but I will definitely get a steak-bone in or ask for steak sauce.
