Best Rueben EVER!

Local spot with friendly staff. The service was great and food delicious. Finally, food served HOT and steamy....... my husband raved about his Rueben so I had a bite. Divine! I had the half order of biscuits and gravy...... smooth, hot, dreamy.

Tried to get lunch here with my sis and niece but despite being one of two tables, the server was unable to take our order. After watching shady customers fill the bar and waiting 20 minutes for service we decided to leave. Not the cleanest place either.

We stopped here for Mothers Day for lunch. The cafe was not especially busy at 12:30 pm. The waitress greeted us promptly, and we gave her our order immediately. Simple order, steak lunch special with side salad. I'm not exaggerating, we waited until 2:15 pm before deciding we were never going to receive our food. One of the reasons we... More

The best biscuits and gravy around. This little place is a great mixture of cowboys and motorcycle enthusiasts coming up from the valley to enjoy this small western town on a Sunday morning. Food is great..service is always good!

The decorating is fair. Though I don't know how to make the room more inviting. The bar noise can be heard in the dining area. Salad is nice and servings are plentiful.

The food is great, especially the hot wings (order mild because hot is HOT!)... The pizza was great as well...

Could not believe that a place so unappealing could charge so much for breakfast!

We were looking for the best wifi hotspot in Wickenburg in order to do a skyping session. While checking out the Cowboy Cafe, we found a 5 bar signal and some great food. We returned that day for supper while we did our skyping and had great food and a great time.

My DH and I went for an early dinner last night on the drive home to the valley from Las Vegas. My husband made the mistake of ordering the fried chicken. I had a cheeseburger (which is more difficult to screw up). He ate a leg that had a cold bone in the center. When he bit into a larger... More
