If you like onion rings or chicken fried steak, this is the place for you. We enjoyed the atmosphere and food. It is definitely a place we will go back.

They have huge chicken fried steak which they are well known for. They have a bar and a night club next door which has karaoke. There prices are a little high.

The Chicken Fries Steak is what they are knownot for and it's enough for two people. You get plenty of food and it's delicious!

Not really. The only thing scary was the Halloween decorations outside the cafe. We had not been there in almost twenty years since we moved to far North Dallas. The atmosphere was rockin' country, the staff was attentive and the chicken fried steak was fantastic. Recommend going the extra 11 minutes north and of Waxahachie and enjoy a great meal.... More

Right out of Urban Cowboy, we NJ folks were out of our element, but food was good, and had a good time. We skipped the bar, as we had a drive back to Dallas, but local flavor and a cool place to eat. Maybe prices were high for Texas, but we thought they were very reasonable for such big portions.... More

Heard about this place for years and met friends on the bar side (not restaurant side) and the bar also offers full menu. The food was good but about 20% overpriced for fried food compared to other local establishments. Full bar (with membership) and good variety of draft and bottle beers. ODD - on the early evening of our visit... More

I tasted my wife's children fried steak, still very tender and tasty. I had the chicken tenders, very good. The house salad and mixed veggies were a good choice. A little pricey.
