Stopped for lunch and looked for the restaurant with the biggest and newest trucks parked outside. Outstanding catfish and Reuben Sandwich and great service and company. To be highly recommended for a lunch stop.

The food was OK, nothing was great but nothing was bad either. But our blackberry cobbler was warmed in the microwave and you could tell.

Dripping Springs is growing explosively, but still offers a sparse selection of dining options other than its overabundance of fast food franchises. Not in the mood for any type of nourishment delivered in a paper sack out of a drive-in window, we decided to stop...More

Fried catfish and okra were pretty good. However I ordered the chicken fried chicken and it was prebattered. Also the onion rings. Expected a cafe to hand batter both. Definitely didn't take much to cook this meal. Wouldn't return.
