The food and service here can be a hit or miss, but is generally pretty decent. Even after I bad experience, I always find myself coming back for more.

It took my husband and I awhile to get to this place, but when we finally did we were amazed at the excellent food and great prices. It is a real locals place, decorated "cowboy" and a menu any "ranch hand" would love. I love the Eggs Benedicts - never have had better - and my husband usually has either... More

Nice local hot spot for breakfast or lunch. Huge tummy filling potions of hot fresh food and friendly smiles and fast service. We came in here after playing around in the desert heading back home and thought we would give them a try and were pleasantly surprised by the decent prices and hearty serving sizes. They were fast and friendly... More

We stopped here when passing through while traveling. It was a little hole in the wall but was packed with people. I had the cheese and choriso scramble and my wife had the blueberry pancakes. The choriso in my scramble tasted home made and was excellent. Both choriso and cheese were present in generous portions. My wife loved the blueberry... More

Unfortunately, we came about a month ago and breakfasted at The Cowboy Restaurant. No issues with the food. It was great and fair-priced. However, we would be hesitant to return as we felt so rushed by the owners and staff. Nothing good to say about being able to relax and enjoy the coffee after your meal, and we aren't the... More

This is a wonderful little cafe in Minden, NV. The service and food are just fabulous. On this most recent visit there were four of us and each of our meals were delicious, hot and fresh. The biscuits are to die for but the chicken fried steak with gravy is also amazing. The other great feature is they listen when... More

I've eaten here twice in the short time since moving to the Carson Valley. Both times were breakfast, both times were outstanding. From the friendly waitresses to the ranch-sized excellent meals and reasonable prices, the only thing that I could with for is that they'd start serving dinner instead of just breakfast and lunch!

Cowboy Cafe is a typical small town "cowboy" themed diner. It is located near my office, but I rarely go there for lunch. When I do, it's nothing special, but the sandwiches and burgers are decent in both taste and price. However, whenever I have to take the family out early on a Saturday morning for something, we almost always... More
