Fodor's Review

Although this restaurant is 15 to 20 minutes from downtown, its location in an underground cavern makes it extremely popular. A candlelit rock stairway leads to a setting that's part Carlsbad Caverns, part The Flintstones. Some of the "cavernous" rooms are for lounging, some for drinking, some for eating, some for dancing. Creative lighting casts the stalactites and stalagmites in pale shades of violet, blue, and pink. Although the setting is the highlight, the

food is also quite good, like the chicken stew, chile relleno, lobster and steak. With a packed house, this place can get rather musty and humid.
