There are few dining choices in this little town, so we ended up at Big Vern's, at the suggestion of the hotel. The atmosphere is nothing worth comment. Our server was not friendly and actually frowned when I asked for a glass of water. It...More

Overall, the food was very average and rather high priced. The salad bar was good and had lots of choices. I had fish and chips, and the fish was mostly batter and the hush puppies were burned. Hubbie had a hamburger, and it was over-cooked....More

They have salad as a vegan option, for vegetarians even more. Meat must be really good (haven’t tried it though).. the mule is super delicious, staff is very nice! A bit pricey but worth it :)

We visited Big Vern's again while staying the night in Shamrock Texas. I had the Steak again - and it was excellent. The Beer Bread was also a nice treat. The waitresses were very friendly and efficient.

The steak was very tender and the salad bar very good. Great service. The place is actually pretty neat especially the bar area. Convenient access to interstate. We will definitely go back just for the calf fries!
