Fodor's Review

The tongue-in-cheek name of this Southwest-inspired restaurant speaks to the sassy waitstaff and the patrons who frequent it (the city's Great Fire of 1901 was started when a mattress factory, which processed moss, ignited). Dinner entrées range from fish tacos and crab cake salad to BBQ pork enchiladas and pecan chicken. The dimly lighted upstairs lounge has a coffeehouse vibe—with a handful of cozy booths and leather couches—and has the city's only tequila bar. Local bands perform periodically on weekends. You can't make guaranteed reservations, but you can call in to be put on the waiting list for seating. A children's menu is available.
