We were visiting the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Zapata Falls and drove to Alamosa to find something to eat. The name of the restaurant caught my attention being a John Wayne fan. The building isn't much to look at and the interior was clean but drab despite the JW movie posters but we decided to take a chance.... More

If you want some great prime rib this is the place. It was cooked to perfection & I chose the baked potato which was also great. The salad was also great with fresh mushrooms and carrots, it came with homemade bread which was also good. The building is old but I don't mind rustic the only downfall was the service... More

True Grits doesn't look very inviting on the outside as you drive by, but once you stop and have a delicious meal with a Western flair, you will return every time you are in Alamosa. It was first recommended to us by a hotel staff member. The John Wayne theme is fun and the atmosphere is relaxing and comfortable. Our... More

The John Wayne decor is interesting. The staff was attentive and service prompt. Skip the house gin, terrible. The prime rib was properly cooked and the house made safflower bread yummy.

This is a great steak and seafood restaurant, a bit pricey, but huge, delicious servings. Efficient service, great food, and convenient to Alamosa.!

I have lived in the area all my life and have never been treated like I was treated at True Grits Steakhouse. We went to have a good steak and a baked potato after work. We were told after we had gotten our salads, "such as they were", that they were out of baked potatoes, so we had them bring... More

Have dined at plenty of high-end rated steakhouses in big cities like Houston, LA, Denver, Dallas, etc. This little place is not going to win any prizes for fancy environment or other amenities but the quality of the steaks put it at the top of my list. Prices are very reasonable for the quality of food delivered. Wait staff are... More

We have been to Alamosa many times, but have never had the chance to eat at True Grits Steakhouse. Drove past it a lot. Finally stopped in for dinner. Wow!! John Wayne decor inside. Prices were very reasonable for a steakhouse. I ordered the Country Fried Steak, my wife got the small Prime Rib. After getting the food and seeing... More

If you're a John Wayne fan and in the area of Alamosa, CO, you need to make a stop here. Radiohutch is right that there's nothing historical about the Duke here, but the decor and the menu are definitely John Wayne. The food's pretty good, also. We had the country fried steak and the 12 oz. New York strip. Both... More
