In Newton has been acquired by MM of Des Moines, I predict it will close in the near future.

I've been there a few times and found it lacking.

I have been there a total of once. I have found that I cook a better steak at home. I did try Jethro's in Altoona the other night, and it was gooooooood. I love thick onion rings. 1". Need I say more?

Yes, that good too. Service at La Cabana has went downhill. I tried the other joint in the old safeway building and thought it was better, and better service.
