Cool place to stop with average food good deserts

The food was edible but not great . The waitstaff was very friendly to locals but not to tourists. It is great for some pictures and a slice of pie, which was good.

I go to Bandera at least once a year and OST is the locals choice. Just good home syle cooking. This is a diner, not a fancy restaurant. I've eaten here over a dozen times and never a bad meal. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, it doesn't matter, the food is always good. The wait staff is very attentive and the... More

Try the chicken fried steak and do not miss a slice or two of pie, especially buttermilk pie and coconut meringue.

Liked the rustic "cowboy" feel. Inexpensive. Breakfast pancakes "as big as your head" and Dnner has a salad bar.

Been here 5 times while working in the area. Always a great place for lunch. I spend more time looking at the wall scenery than actually eating though. Lots of John Wayne and old time cowboy pictures. The food is great and plentiful. Wait staff is hometown friendly and always smiling. The salad bar is great as well. Highly recommended... More

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.
