Entertaining Yelp review: "Lastly, and most importantly- THE DESSERT. I don't mean to be melodramatic but the chocolate lava cake literally made me want to die it was so amazing. I don't know what kind of liquid crack they put in their chocolate but it was rich and heavenly in flavor without being overpoweringly sweet. I could not stop eating it until my plate was scraped empty. Paired with the light chocolate cake and ice cream... Holy. Shit. I was in awe for probably one of the few times dining out in Tucson ever- I would have never guessed that dish would be at a chain steakhouse, but what can you do about it?"
