Two desserts stand out. Bread pudding is marvelous, zipped up with bourbon sauce and a crunchy praline topping. And the deep-dish apple pie tastes just like deep-dish apple pie is supposed to taste--not too sweet and loaded with apples.

Armadillo Grill is the kind of place this neighborhood needs, a relaxing place to unwind. With a little more effort, it could become a dinner destination for the rest of the town, as well.
