We have driven by this place for years, but finally visited this week. The entire place smacks of Wall Drug, or Knots Berry Farm. Creaky wooden floors, torn booth upholstery, and items for sale all over the place. It was crowded and quite busy. We each ordered the rib eye at $19.00 apiece. Our server, a Native American was informative... More

This restaurant has the most unfriendly group of wait and host/hostess staff that I've ever seen in a restaurant. The miserable-looking and downright unfriendly girl who led us to our table, wow...it's amazing that she was ever hired. If you don't like working with people, then find a job elsewhere. While our waitress was efficient, she was not friendly and... More

The steaks were very tasty BUT, possibly due to abysmal service, they arrived lukewarm to the table. I smelled alcohol on our server's breath, and although we were waiting for our food, he was actually sitting down chatting with some people at another table. Pretty unbelievable, but very true. The atmosphere is more like an amusement park than a restaurant,... More

This place has really good steak. Kids enjoyed their meals as well as adults. The place was well managed. The bathrooms, however, smelled like cigarette smoke. This place has a shooting range (that may be scary to younger kids as it is zombies), a gift shop, and a sweet bar. We love the steak once again!

Get your full dose of Texas here. Food was pretty good with the exception of the beans. They tasted terrible, way too much maple. Who'd a thought that Texans couldn't make decent beans. Lots of cowboy atmosphere here (meaning lots of cow horns on the walls). Wandering band to play your favorite western request. Watch and yell encouragement as someone... More

It was a good steak. The entertainment was great. We were watching someone trying to eat the 72oz. steak within the allotted time. If you do it's free. It was an experience. They also have a live web can if you sit at certain tables you can call relatives to see you on the web can. All in all a... More
