I visited here after asking at the desk of the UFO museum for some local lunch options other than fast food. It looks a little weird from the outside and inside they have a pile of dollar bills all taped to the walls and ceiling. The story is they donate them to a worthy cause when the tape softens and...

Great Breakfast and Lunch! Their Catfish special is so good, and all the fresh pies are great, pecan is the best! Friendly and welcoming!

I went here for breakfast. Order coffee, tasted like burnt water. I ordered the Huevos Rancheros. Not a good choice. The over easy eggs I ordered were rock hard and the sauce was terrible. The beans had absolutely no flavor at all. Hash browns were burnt. The tortilla was nuked in the microwave and soggy and doughy. I can't believe... More

While visiting Roswell, we visited Cowboy Café for breakfast. It's a quaint and small establishment but the food was very delicious and satisfying. It's not on the main street so you have to search for it. The service was excellent and the portions are generous. I highly recommend stopping here if you're in the Roswell area. The dollar bills hanging... More

While in Roswell we found a couple of gems on Tripadvisor and this place was one of them (Big D's Diner was the other). We did not know what to expect when we drove up to the place as it was a few blocks off the main strip and the building looked pretty ragged and dilapidated from the outside. I... More

This is my first review. This was a great little place with such a friendly staff and good food! I ordered breakfast but the hamburgers looked wonderful as they were coming out!

I found this place on Trip Advisor and took the kids. It was real cowboy sized breakfast. I had some of the best scrambled eggs ever and the kids enjoyed giant hot cakes. Great service too. A true hole in the wall treasure!

I found this place on Trip Advisor and decided to try it out, wanting to eat at a small, local place in Roswell. The staff was friendly and our waitress couldn't have been nicer. The food was delicious and tasted like something my mother would make. My boyfriend was apprehensive about going here, but once inside the cafe, he was... More

We ate here for breakfast. We got a lot of great food for very little money. The friendly service can't be beat. Our waitress kept our coffee cups full and she was very nice to our children. I had the Country Breakfast, my wife had the biscuits and sausage gravy, and our kids had the french toast. Everyone loved their... More

I like it. Like many places where good food is the experience, it is not for yuppies, home town hard working folks. The rolls are very good. The gravy is excellent on the real mashed potatoes & liked the chicken fried chicken. Price was right too.
