We went here for a quick lunch before continuing our trips. The waitress are energetic and charming. The steak are good and so does the fajita & enchiladas. The salad bar is OK. Do sit in the John Wayne room. A lot of photos & some fun facts to read.

I haven't eaten here in 15-20 years, and it is as good now as it was then. The chili burgers (gunslinger) are huge & juicy with proper Texas chili (no beans) and the onion rings taste handcut and homemade. The chicken fried steak was really good too. If you go during a busy time, expect to wait for a table... More

We ate here a couple of times while visiting the area, once for lunch and once for dinner. Had a good hamburger for lunch and a huge chicken fried chicken for dinner. It is a laid back atmosphere but we were happy with the service we received. I would definitely ear here again. I would, and did, recommend this place.... More

Loved the atmosphere of old casual western. We shared a delicious hamburger and crispy hand battered onion rings. I heard or read that the chocolate merengue pie was good but we were too full. Breakfast menu looked good also. There was a nice salad bar we didn't have a chance to try. The bar stools were saddles which looked fun.... More

If you're in Bandera then a stop at OST is a must. Have some enchiladas in the John Wayne room, or a hearty breakfast, and you'll be satisfied. It's not exceptional food, but consistently very good, and the service is generally excellent. The decor is what's not to be missed, saddles at the bar, the Duke shrine, and a generally... More
