Ate breakfast here while on a motorcycle rally. Food was ok, but service left a little to be desired. My buddies ordered a breakfast platter with a side of oatmeal. I ordered a cinnamon roll and sausage patties. The waitress brought out his platter. - no oatmeal, no cinnamon roll or sausage patties. After he finished his platter, she brought... More

A nice stop for a bite to eat and check out the bar with the saddles for seats. Too sweet! Food and atmosphere is a must!

This place is the happening place for weekend breakfast, especially if you're on a motorcycle. The western décor is fabulous. They have a counter bar with horse saddles for chairs. Their salad bar is a covered wagon. A must see! And the food is incredible.

Just look at the building, it's been around since the turn of the century, the LAST century. Ok, the cooks and wait staff have changed, but the food is as down home food now as I would imagine back in the day. Want breakfast? Show up early or wait in line. Did so this past weekend and got there before... More

Bland, country schlock. Service was friendly, but doesn't make up for lame food. Salad bar is a disgrace. Yes, it tastes as bad as it looks. Chicken fried steak is an overcooked mass of tough meat-slab. Quick tip on CFS: half the meat, but BETTER cut, cooked right with fresh, hot oil.... seems like no one gives a darn in... More

We were here for lunch. Such a fun place!! Servers are very friendly, prices are very reasonable. The best part? The hamburgers! They were great. A must stop when in Bandera.

My daughter and I ate here for dinner one night only spring break. She had the salad bar and I had the smothered chopped steak. We shared blackberry cobbler for dessert. All of our food was very good. The waitress was very attentive even though it was busy. I will definitely eat here again if we ever pass through Bandera... More

Hard to believe a restaurant could ruin a breakfast, but this place has done it every time we are there. Too bad it's the only game in town.
