The Mexican food here is actually pretty good ( the Real Eato in particular). It's not authentic, but it's good. The steaks are not good at all. The cuts of meat are not great quality and after trying them multiple times, I would never order another one. The service here is rather slow. On a Friday or Saturday night you... More

We brought a large bus group here. There were 48 on the bus who all ordered off the menu. There was only one server to handle the entire party. Unfortunately was not a great place for us to bring a large group

I've been to Wooden Windmill a few times over the years. I have yet to have what I would call a "great meal". When I go out to a sit down restaurant, I usually like to have a steak or Prime Rib. I've had both here...and everytime, the food tasted old and gristly. I don't go here very often for... More

Unfortunately I ordered Mexican.......what was I thinking? The ground beef was black in color. It was so unappetizing looking my dinner mates asked "what is that"? I will not be returning or recommend this eatery.

Service is poor and the food isn't worth eating for free. It's dark, dingy and dirty looking, but the flies don't seem to care.

I agree with the other posters, this placed used to be very good - not sure what happened but we will not be back. I ordered beef brisket & no amount of bar-be-que sauce could make those dry pieces of meat edible. Two others had Mexican food & felt like the ground beef had been microwaved too long, again dry...

We were back in Fremont for our family reunion and I had to go back to have the Baby Huey's Ribeye Steak. I am fortunate to eat all over the United States and I have never found a better Ribeye Steak. The one I had was 18oz. and lightly seasoned and cooked to perfection. I was here back in January...
