Delicious steaks, chicken, and fish. A bit pricey, but the steaks woth it if that's what you are craving. Nice atmosphere toward the back of the restaurant, and lots of John Wayne pictures all over the walls.

We're locals, & this is 1 of our 2 favorite places to go for steak (True Grits has more of a selection than the other 1). Yes, the building is very old & doesn't look like much (especially from the outside), but the steaks are to die for! There are a lot of steak choices, & they also serve ribs,... More

Has a John Wayne theme. All the food selections are named after John Wayne rolls or movies. Good selection of steaks and seafood combos.

It was a good thing we made reservations for our party of 9, they where busy that night. The waitress was a little overwhelmed but she was very pleasant and nice. Everyone was happy with their food. I read a few reviews about the dark atmosphere, it was much better. It was well lit and very comfortable.

The steaks were cooked just right and tender. Baked potato just right. Salad good. Prices very reasonable for a steakhouse. Waitress was a student, and bright and attentive.

We stayed overnight in Alamosa and were told True Grits was pretty good. We were there for lunch and WOW was it ever good. We were one of two couples there (a weekday) and everything was wonderful...especially the homemade bread. We enjoyed the JW pictures and carving likeness. We liked the very primitive, rustic type atmosphere. Waitress was very friendly... More

I was traveling on business with a colleague, arriving on Sunday night for a Monday meeting in Alamosa. It was 8:00 p.m. The outside of this restaurant has never impressed us, but we were interested in having steak, and had a recommendation from the hotel clerk for True Grits. Upon entering the dining room, the darkness is remarkable; are they... More

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
