We had come upon a Groupon for this place and thought we would try it out. We both had the cheeseburger and fries and they were excellent. Very fresh. The service was outstanding. Make sure that if you go for lunch you realize the hours are only 11 - 2. We arrive at 2:05 one day and they were done... More

My wife and I, along with another couple, went to check out The Happy Cow, mostly on a lark, and was very pleasantly surprised with our basic hamburger lunch. The place itself is somewhat basic (it is a bar with bar food, after all), but we were all in agreement how good the food was. My wife's hamburger, as well... More

Cold, cold beer...a great juke box...friendly locals...great burgers...This place has it all! Live music many nights. You have to have the smart phone help you find it. Just off I-35 About marker 196. No signs. Local joint pure and simple.

Stopped in for a late lunch, were informed rather brusquely that the grill was closed until dinner time. A handful of what appeared to be locals were sitting at one end of the bar drinking...all conversation stopped and they all stared at us and just kept staring...as if they had never seen new customers enter their beloved establishment and didn't...

The burger is a hand pressed that has not been processed. A Happy Cow burger makes for a Happy Cow patron. Don't forget the golden brown crispy tater tots. My brother said that the waitstaff was hot, but I wouldn't be a good judge of that. All I know is that everyone was so friendly. I also like the large... More

This is a great dive bar with mostly locals as I could tell (it WAS a Monday night) We ordered 3 burgers. Onion rings & a Frito Pie. The burgers are HUGE! We should have split one amongst the 3 of...

This is a local bar. Went to try burgers that were raved about. Glad we did. It was fresh, not frozen patty and at least 1/2 lb. Fries were great also. A regular size order would of been enough for 2 since burger so large. Drinks were also good. The local pubs are the best.
