My children had a wonderful time here, they loved the saddle bar stools and enjoyed the food. The staff were friendly and welcoming and made the experience great fun.

I was disappointed by their Chili Releno Combo Plate. I had way too much cheese. I ordered the beef filled releno, but it still had cheese in it and cheese sauce was poured over everthing, including the beans. Cheese almost tasted like Velveeta. Wife had hamburger and onion rings and they were good, not exceptional, just good. Service was ok,... More

Place has been here forever, the outside is nothing special. Inside however, you *know* you're in Texas! Probably the cowboy capital of Texas, which of course, is saying something. Prices here are crazy cheap, the quality very good, service is excellent. I wouldn't think about visiting Bandera without coming here!

You know it's gonna be good when the place is full of locals! Came about noon of a Spring Break Saturday, we had such a sweet server. She was cute, helpful and told us about so many delicious options, I wasn't sure what to order! We decided on the Chicken Fried Steak, mashed potatoes and the salad bar. It was... More

Was in Bandera for 2 days hunting. Ate here twice. 1 lunch and 1 breakfast. The staff is extremely friendly and nice. The service was great. Food comes out really fast. Prices are good. The restaurant serves home style comfort food and Mexican food. Everything I had was great

Very friendly and attentive wait staff, especially given the crowd. The food was so-so. Two of us had a BLT and the bacon was pretty fatty and raw; I like it crispy. Another of us had the pancakes which were huge and pretty good! And another had a taco salad that was pretty bland - chicken no seasoning and dry.... More

Stopped here for lunch on the recommendation of a lady in an antique shop. She steered us right! It was busy at the peak of the lunch hour but we found a table and the waitress found us. Excellent service and though it says on the menu to expect a wait because the food is prepared for you, we were... More

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.
