It was so good passing through at the beginning of our road trip that we stopped for breakfast again at the end. Perfectly done eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns and toast. Good coffee, too. Service is friendly and efficient. Senior breakfast inc coffee is six bucks. Pleasing western theme. Will stop again on next trip.

Don't let the high number review fool you - there is nothing special about this breakfast! The staff was not helpful, got our order and the bill wrong and charged us anyway even after we pointed it out. The food was OK, but not great or even good. I don't think any of us finished our food and it wasn't... More

While traveling through Amarillo, we decided to try this place since it had great reviews on Yelp. We were there for a late lunch before heading out towards New Mexico. Since everyone ranted and raved about the chicken fried steak, several of my traveling companions ordered that. They both said it was just "okay." After asking our waitress what the... More

BOOM this hit the spot!!! Cool place with excellent food!!! I wish I could put that gravy on everything!! Perfectly crisp bacon, perfectly cooked hash browns, amazing biscuits and gravy, and we highly recommend the Kick A Omelette!!! The coffee was a little weak but still a 5 star place! Oh...and the pancakes are huge!

The service was great and the food was wonderful. We both had the breakfast burrito with green chilies and it was excellent. It's just an old cowboy hangout so don't expect frills, but the food more than makes up for the atmosphere!

Best chicken fried steak we have ever had. Took our 3 teenagers for lunch. They loved the Texas antiques on the walls and the home cooking was great. Biggest portions and cheapest restaurant meal of the trip.

This is the type of place that you get good ol southern cooking. The chicken fried steak is to die for. The food is truly homemade from the rolls to the gravy. if you want to know what food tastes like prior to fast food, this is the place to come

Get the Vicky's burrito:) We went for breakfast on a Friday. Plenty of seating but we were told it gets PACKED for lunch and dinner. Breakfast on the weekends gets busy too.
