As you can see, I did a review a while back. I continue to drop by cowboys, every once in a while, hoping it's better than before. I dropped by there for lunch today. I ordered a chopped beef sandwich, Onion rings and a large drink, that cost me 11.94. The sandwich was a cold, soggy and fatty. My onion... More

My family and I absolutely love this restaurant- we eat there regularly and we recently had our wedding shower there and the staff was amazing! The food is good and the service is over the top friendly and competent.

I have eaten at cowboys for years. It is good BBQ, no question about that. What I cannot figure out is why the BBQ is not hot when you get it. Everytime I go in to eat, our BBQ is not hot. It is a bit pricy vs. other BBQ places in the neighborhood.

I'm originally from Muskogee OK, and I frequented Cowboys Bar-B-Q as a teenager some 25 or so years ago! To be honest, I was hesitant to go back, because I didn't want to change my memories of good times and really good BBQ, but on this trip I finally broke down and took my family, and I'm so glad I...

I went on a Saturday when there is all you can eat ribs. The ribs are very good. The amount of meat on the ribs was very good. Also they kept my plate full and the eaten ribs cleaned off the table. If you like it spicy the hot is very good.

They served prime rib, potato,salad, grilled green beans, the food was hot, prime rib was out of this world!!... More
