We frequent Mac Joes at least twice a month. The food is always great as well as the service. The wait staff is always friendly and helpful. They always deserve a tip on the high end of the spectrum. We never leave there disappointed. Josephines Chocolate Mousse is a MUST after a meal. Make sure you save room!

About the restaurant
Merging classic cowboy cultures, Toscana brings the iconic flavors of Italy and its cattle-country to West Texas. Serving beef that would make any Panhandle rancher proud, we source our ingredients from nearby farms and fields, and offer an outstanding selection of local and international wines and spirits. Pull up a seat, grab a glass, and allow our staff to take you on this culinary journey.

THE FOOD WAS AMAZING!!! VERY GOOD MEAL FOR THE MONEY! WAIT STAFF, NOT SO GREAT. WHEN CASHING OUT SHE APOLOGIZED FOR CHARGING ANOTHER TABLES MEAL TO MY CARD, THEN PROCEEDED TO TELL ME SHE HAD IT HAPPEN A FEW OTHER TIMES AND THE CREDIT SHOWS BACK UP IN A DAY OR 2 BUT TO WATCH MY BANK. BARTENDER NEEDS HELP! COCKTAILS WERE LAME. NO BOOZE AND NO ICE. THEN ORDERED AN AMARETTO SOUR AND IT APPARENTLY THEY DID NOT HAVE AMARETTO OR HE WAS CONFUSED. USED A BUTTERSCOTCH LIQUOR. THE SECOND WAS BETTER BUT NOT MUCH. HARD TO MESS UP A VODKA DIET AND AN AMAREETO SOUR. JUST NEED A LITTLE TRAINING IN A COUPLE AREAS. THE FOOD WAS FABULOUS!!!! WILL TRY IT AGAIN.
