Pretty Dang Good!

We popped into the OST for an early lunch on the National Day of the American Cowboy, and it was a pretty dang good experience! The last time we were in Bandera, there was a long wait to get in, but this time, we were seated quickly in a dining room that was part dining room, part shrine to John... read more

I have eaten here a few times and have been impressed with the food. The chicken fried steak is average at best and the hamburgers were a real disappointment. There are a lot of photos of John Wayne and some other western stars hanging on the wall, but that don't make the food good. I can't imagine The Duke eating... More

We went to this restaurant twice while vacationing in Bandera. The first time was for lunch. We ordered burgers and they were very good and the staff was fairly prompt. The second time we went was on our way out of town on a Sunday and there was a 15 minute wait which we didn't mind at all (it gave... More

Old western décor and good food. The taco salad is awesome. Homemade pies are a specialty! This restaurant is open 7 days a week and you won't be disappointed.
